Grants Given to Institutions Treating Veterans for Traumas and Substance Abuse

The Veterans Healing Initiative has given more than $300,000 in grants to two facilities that help Veterans with substance abuse and trauma disorders.

The Loyola Recovery Foundation in New York and La Paloma in Tennessee received the money to continue helping Veterans with psychological care they might not otherwise receive, such as therapy for drug or alcohol dependence, PTSD, and sexual traumas.

“Even as U.S. troops withdraw from Iraq, our soldiers continue to struggle with physical and psychological pain from their service,” said Margaret Stone, VHI’s chairman and president. “Federal and public programs are overwhelmed, and too many veterans struggle to get clinical and medical care.”

In addition to contributing for the cost of Veteran treatment, VHI also would like to increase the number of dual-diagnosis treatment programs for Veterans. To learn more, visit their website.
