After Vietnam, Howard didn't talk about his experiences and withdrew from other people. He felt directionless and began using drugs. Connecting with group counseling at VA helped him quit using and work through his challenges. Through the support and understanding of other Veterans and his psychiatrist, Howard got back on track.
No matter what you may be experiencing, there is support for getting your life on a better track. Many, many Veterans have found the strength to reach out and make the connection.Locate VA Resources
