Having that intimate knowledge of the challenges and lifestyle of a military life was the inspiration for the creation of the SUD military spouses and adult children of military member’s track.  The military specific track will address SUD and PCS, Grief and Loss, Healthy Self Care During Deployments, How to Establish a Sober Support Network in a New Location, Healthy Leisure Activities During Command Functions, and Where to Find Resources in the Military Community to Support a Lifestyle of Recovery.

We are here to support your efforts. Our education program is low cost, customized to meet your recommendations and implemented by those in the treatment industry like yourself. Our education program adds a personal touch needed for this stage of the disease and you will be kept up-to-date on the progress throughout the education program.
