Veterans face many challenges in returning to civilian life after military service or deployment. Many of those challenges stem from the psychological trauma that follows war and lead to alcohol and drug abuse. If you are a veteran struggling with drug abuse, The Phoenix Recovery Center offers resources and rehab centers for veterans covered by Tricare.
Veterans and Tricare Mental Health Coverage
In 2014, 1 in 4 active duty military members showed signs of mental health disorders. These disorders don’t go away when a service member leaves the military. The most common mental health concerns veterans face include PTSD treatment and depression. Those who have served our country face many traumatic events that lead to a higher rate of experiencing a mental health disorder. Through Tricare mental health coverage, veterans can receive the help they need to return to a meaningful life as a civilian.
