To All Veterans – Thanks for Your Service!
“This Memorial Day weekend, let us reflect on the tremendous price that was paid by the brave men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. Through the sounding of Taps, members of The United States Air Force Band solemnly render honor to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
A long-held musical tradition at military funerals, the music of Taps originated from a Civil War bugle call entitled, “Extinguish Lights”. A plaintive call, the sounding of Taps signals the end of the fallen serviceman’s duty and is the final tribute from a grateful nation.
To those who have given the last full measure of devotion, we honor your service, pay tribute to your lives, and thank you for your selfless sacrifice.”
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday for remembering the servicemen and servicewomen who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.
Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery each year with a ceremony in which a small American flag is placed on each grave.

IN HONOR OF MEMORIAL DAY, IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN VETERANS OF AMERICA URGES AMERICANS
TO #GOSILENT ON MAY 25
The Veteran Support Organization will hold its 9th annual moment of silence in honor of all veterans who died in service of the US Armed Services.
New York, NY – This Memorial Day, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) will hold its 9th annual moment of silence at 3pm local time to honor the men and women who gave their lives in service of the US Armed Forces. The organization urges all Americans to join in this national moment of remembrance and take the pledge at iava.org/go-silent.
Over the last nine years, IAVA has held this annual moment of silence on Memorial Day. This year, the organization is additionally seeking to raise awareness of those veterans who died by suicide. Our country loses an astounding 20 veterans a day to suicide, nearly twice the average of their civilian counterparts.
“Any loss of a service member is a tragedy, but the loss of a veteran to suicide is not only tragic, it is completely preventable” said Jeremy Butler, CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. “The pandemic has spiked overall mental health challenges, making COVID-19 a recipe for disaster for our veterans. This Memorial Day, we urge all Americans to #GoSilent in honor of those we have already lost and stand with us to protect those who have sacrificed so much to protect us.”
As part of its #GoSilent campaign this year, IAVA is urging congress to pass the Commander John Scott Hannon Veterans Mental Health Care Improvement Act, which includes vital provisions to find and treat at-risk veterans, ensuring they have access to quality resources and care. “Passage of this bill would mean more could be done for veterans in addressing mental health needs and preventing suicide,” Butler added.
What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment (Co-occurring Disorders)?
Addiction treatment for active military, veterans and first responders almost always includes treatment for dual diagnosis; also known as co-occurring disorders.
The term is called Dual Diagnosis or Co-occurring Disorders. This means the individual has a combination of mental disorders (such as depression, anxiety, trauma, etc.) and addiction (to drugs or alcohol.)
Military personnel and first responders often experience trauma while performing their duties. First responders are first on the scene of disasters and emergency situations. The general public sees first responders and soldiers as a kind of Super Hero. And they are: but even super heroes need support to continue their mission.
Veteran Dual Diagnosis Integrated Addiction Treatment
The best treatment for dual diagnosis is integrated treatment. This means the individual receives care for both their diagnosed mental illness and substance use disorder.
Dual Diagnosis treatment is the key to true addiction recovery. Because addiction, at its core, is usually not simply addiction!
For example, individuals can be addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex – or a combination of things. And psychiatric disorders experienced in dual diagnosis individuals can include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, depression, borderline personality disorder, or panic disorder, among others.
A high functioning alcoholic can suffer from a PTSD. A person addicted to opioids can also suffer from clinical depression.

If you or a loved one are suffering from addiction – as well as PTSD, depression, trauma or other mental health issue: Please know that help is available to provide comprehensive, whole person, holistic and integrated addiction rehab treatment.
