* Help.org is a group of medical professionals and addiction experts concerned with the substance abuse crisis that military veterans throughout the U.S. and their families are facing.
* There are concerns, of course of further implications such as long term medical problems, additional psychiatric disorders, interpersonal and vocational impairment, and sadly suicide. Unfortunately, for most communities, this problem is hidden due to the lack of awareness.
* Therefore, the site provides a guide with comprehensive information on substance abuse statistics among veterans, governmental programs that offers treatment, and steps that veterans can take to get the help that they need.
