Coping through the Holidays: Substance Abuse
December 14 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm CST
The holiday season is traditionally associated with joy, laughter, and merriment shared amongst loved ones. However, for our military and veteran community, this time can often be overshadowed by heightened stress, feelings of isolation, depression, and anxiety. Sadly, instead of being a source of comfort, the festive season can exacerbate these difficulties, leading to a rise in substance abuse as individuals attempt to cope with their challenges. You don't have to face the holidays alone.
This is a chance for you to reach out and find support from both your peers and the peer leader, Alunya Clark. If your service member or veteran struggles with addiction or substance abuse, or you are concerned they may have a problem, let's talk through strategies for navigating the holiday season.
To be eligible for this group you must be the spouse or partner of an active duty service member or post-service veteran, or a caregiver of a veteran or active duty service member.
Eligibility varies by session, so please check our Eventbrite page to see other social clubs that may interest you.
