This Veterans Day, and every day, we salute our veterans of Illinois. RALI Illinois partners with a number of veterans organizations to help increase awareness of substance use disorders among veteran communities and connect them with resources.
Did you know that veterans are at higher risk of opioid addiction because they are more likely to experience an injury during their service? One in 15 struggles with a substance use disorder, which represents approximately 1.5 million veterans across the country.
Thank you to our partners -- Vietnam Veterans of America, Veterans Health Council and Veterans Against Drugs -- who provide needed support for veterans every day.
