Kevin developed tinnitus after experiencing frequent missile firings while serving in an Army air defense artillery unit. He used drugs and alcohol in an attempt to cope with the chronic ringing, depression and anxiety, and he eventually became homeless. After a low point, Kevin reached out for treatment at a detox center. Treatment, including cognitive behavioral therapy, helped him work thorough his challenges and become sober. Continued support and activities like journaling and spending time outdoors help him stay on track. Now, Kevin helps fellow Veterans work toward recovery too.View Video Transcript Go To Video Gallery
