Military Substance Abuse Programs

Each branch of service in the United States military has a substance abuse program.

It looks to me like the following websites are available over the world wide web, but they prefer only military members using them.  Anyway, for those of you in the military, here are a list of sites relating to Military Substance Abuse Programs

Army Substance Abuse Programs (ASAP)

Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention (NADAP)

Air Force Substance Abuse Policy and Program (ADAPT)

This is as close as I could get to their program, not nearly as accessible as the Army or Navy sites.

MARINE CORPS SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROGRAM

Marine Corps Order (MCO) 5300.17 -The are somewhat secretive with their program too, this is as close as I could get.

At the top of this page is a Confidential Help button that displays helpline numbers.  Presumably these folks can get you to the people you need to talk to.

 

Confidentiality

I would assume for promotions, etc. confidentiality would be a material factor in where and how you looked for assistance.

If a service member voluntarily seeks treatment, confidentiality is a part of the treatment process. Confidentiality refers to the protection of the personal and private information shared during a counseling session by the service member with a mental health or substance abuse counselor. However, there are exceptions to confidentiality in counseling, which include the service member’s involvement with suspected child abuse, threats of potential harm to self or others (suicidal or homicidal), subpoena under court order, and the commander’s need to know. In addition, many treatment programs require spouse involvement in the treatment and support of the service member.

Here is a reader friendly report from National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).  It covers what many members of the United States military are currently experiencing.

Civilians: Given that the National Security Administration (NSA) for snooping, I would recommend that if you are not military you should probably stay away from them.
