ARVets and SAMHSA are working together on strategies that address substance abuse.

ARVets, a statewide nonprofit organization providing innovative programs for Arkansas veterans and their families, will host the Substance Use Disorders Virtual Implementation Academy on Wednesday, May 20th and Thursday, May 21st from 8:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. The event is in partnership with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Since 2008, SAMHSA has offered policy academies to help states strengthen behavioral health service systems that support service members, veterans, and their families. The two-day Virtual Academy at ARVets will include informative trainings and technical assistance directed by expert facilitators.

“This type of academy is a great place to start creating a sustainable support system for our service members, veterans, and their families,” said ARVets CEO Nicole Hart. “We have to find comprehensive strategies for addressing substance abuse, treatment, and recovery for veterans and the military community. Bringing everyone to the table to confront these issues is essential and ARVets is excited to lead the way and work collectively with other organizations and experts.”

PTSD counseling for Arkansas veterans

PTSD counseling for Arkansas veterans helps our heroes transition back into the civilian world.

At ARVets, our core mission is to fight for the veterans that fought honorably for their country. Veterans suffering from PTSD need rehabilitative therapy in order to acclimate to life away from the battlefield, which is why ARVets provides a variety of behavioral programs for our Arkansas veterans. Our group therapy and counseling for veterans equips them with the tools they need to restore their health and mental wellness while suffering from PTSD—a disorder with lasting effects just as dangerous as a traumatic brain injury.
