Guide for military families on substance use prevention, treatment, & recovery for military youth
The Partnership to End Addiction and SAFE Project recently released a new guide for military families detailing risk factors and resources for military youth dealing with substance use, from prevention to recovery. As described in the guide, children in military families often experience family separations for trainings and deployments, frequent moves, and may experience a service member’s injury, disability, or death. The guide includes data on military youth substance use, risk factors unique to the population, prevention tips and tools, addressing substance use and seeking treatment, and military-specific resources for families.
