What's Next?

After attending a drug rehab program for veterans in Puerto Rico, the next phase of treatment is aftercare support. Aftercare for veterans in recovery is often overlooked. However, there are recovery meetings, outpatient therapy, sober coaching, and sober living homes for veterans in recovery. Maintaining sobriety can sometimes be challenging, but lifelong sobriety is possible with the correct aftercare support.


The VA healthcare program covers services to treat substance use problems. Veterans Affairs provides various services, including drug detox, counseling, outpatient care, inpatient or residential treatment, and special programs for veterans with specific concerns.

Veterans become addicted to drugs or alcohol for various reasons. Most often, it results from injury, Post Traumatic Disorder, mental health issues, and physical or emotional trauma. It is a common problem that many veterans struggle with and require immediate treatment and help.

Behavioral therapies tend to be the most effective. Yet, the initial assessment with a qualified professional helps determine the most effective counseling or therapy methods. PTSD is a common problem that is effectively treated in a drug rehab program.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people. He is a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist graduate with Honours of Stratford Career Institute. Marcel has also received a certificate from Harvard for completing a course entitled The Opioid Crisis in America and a certificate from The University of Adelaide for completing a course entitled AddictionX: Managing Addiction: A Framework for Succesful Treatment.
