Alcohol And Drug Rehab Treatments For Military In Kansas

Prescription drug abuse has always been an ongoing problem throughout the United States, especially among its military personnel and veterans. Because so many active-duty members will come back from deployment with many different physical and mental stressors, it is very common for them to be prescribed various forms of different medications to help handle their current afflictions. For example, an injury can cause a person to be prescribed different forms of pain management medication. A diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder could cause a person to be prescribed different forms of anti-anxiety medications or sleeping medications. Many if not most of these medications are narcotics and are potentially addictive in nature. When a doctor or therapist prescribes these drugs, they will give the person certain guidelines and safe ways of taking these medications.

It is not uncommon for these drugs to be abused and taken in excess, which leads to addiction. Within the state of Kansas, there are different options available for drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment for military personnel, service members and veterans. These programs are offered at private facilities that come at an out-of-pocket cost; there are also government-run programs that come at no cost or low cost or are covered by military insurance. During a stay at a treatment center or during the time spent attending outpatient treatment, various forms of counseling and therapy will be used to help address the addiction and any other problems that may be occurring. The military also offers different options to turn to, such as the Army Substance Abuse Program, and different programs offered through Veterans Affairs, such as support groups and counseling.
