Provides resources for veterans dealing with substance abuse. From their site: "The National Veterans Foundation (NVF) reports that veteran substance abuse is a growing problem. Today, there are more instances of debilitating physical and mental health issues in veterans than there were 50 years ago.

Maryville University aims to provide awareness and information in supporting our veterans with PTSD. The more you know about and understand PTSD, the easier it is to see the impact this condition can have on the military veteran individually and the family unit as a whole. Educating yourself about treatment options helps as well, and provides you with the tools you need to help yourself or a loved one overcome this sometimes debilitating condition.
Veterans provide an irreplaceable service to the nation, yet, both personally and professionally suffer when they return from service or retire. They fall prey to substance abuse issues, housing troubles, financial difficulties, and mental health disorders, among others. DetoxRehabs.org centers help veterans back into society with an array of treatment services, programs, and evidence-based treatment methods as well as secure, private locations in which to heal.
