Thank You for the informative article. As a Member of the USAF I know that self-reporting is just the tip of the iceberg in our branches. There is no valid method that I know of that will give you the actual numbers of those that abuse, both active duty, and ex-military.
Could you please create a profile for those of us, say 55 y.o. and up that struggle with chronic pain issues? Particularly those that combine ETOH with prescribed medications.
This age group seems to be under represented and most that I know will not actually seek help on their own. As for myself, I no longer imbibe and two years ago I stopped a decade of morphine dependency, due to it's spiritual connotations.
My 65 Birthday is coming soon and this year I get a special present. I get to remember it.
