Chicago Man Helps Veterans Battle Addiction

Jeff Gilbert was conducting research for his doctorate in psychology when he discovered an interest in helping United States veterans with drug and alcohol addiction. He founded U.S. VETCare, part of a nonprofit service that helps people deal with substance abuse and mental health disorders.

One residence exists for veterans currently, with another one being renovated. Once accepted to the VETCare program, veterans must work together in the household. They undergo drug and alcohol screenings and must complete general chores. So far, the organization has helped 24 men. They must also complete 5 counseling sessions a week as part of their required drug treatment regimen.

For those who need drug treatment in the New Mexico, Texas or Oklahoma areas, Vista Taos Drug Treatment Center in Taos, New Mexico provides compassionate staff and proven inpatient drug treatment techniques to help people work through any sort of substance abuse. They are also equipped to handle behavioral addictions and other “non-drug related” problems such as co-dependency.
