Salute to our Troops
Special Thanks to my Maternal Grandfather Carl E. Miller who served in the army during World War II. His service to our country included being held captive in Hitler’s Nazi Concentration Camps, not once but twice. He nearly starved to death before he was rescued.
Yes, he suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly called PTSD. This is very common among our service men and women as well as others. So you never know at what cost Freedom has been given.
Special Thanks to my Father Eugene Smith for his service in the army during the Korean War and his subsquential service in Berlin Germany.
My Father was barely 18 when he was sent off to the Korean war. He and my mother often spoke of their adventures in Berlin Germany during his service. It wasn’t until my Mother passed did he speak to me about some of his experiences in Korea, he was a medic on the front line. His experiences are what nightmares are made of.
Salute to the spouses that are left behind
Lest we forget the ones that are keeping the home fires burning. My Grandmother had 4 children while my Grandfather was away. My parents did not have me until they were out of the service. However, my first husband was Military and we had two small children at home. At one point in time, he went to Officer’s candidate school which left me alone for several months with a small baby and a 3 year old. I was working full time and my dear Grandmother was ill with cancer. I managed, but I have no clue how my Grandmother managed with 4 children. I personally salute the spouses that are at home waiting patiently for their loved ones to return.
Please remember to honor our Veterans as they and their families endure so much to give our country something so precious, Our Freedom.

Have what is called, Dual diagnosis which is a relatively new term used to describe an individual with a drug dependency and an underlying mental health disorder.
According to a study funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), about 23 million Americans suffer from some form of a co-occurring disorder associated with a substance use disorder (National Institutes of Health, 2015). These comorbid disorders are considered dual diagnosis disorders, and the survey also reveals that the majority of these disorders are left untreated.
Mental Health & Substance Abuse
Dual diagnosis treatment is an integrated, coordinated approach to substance abuse and mental health interventions for individuals with co-occurring disorders. This means that multidisciplinary teams of clinicians are working together under one roof to provide client-centered, seamless services ranging from holistic therapy to social skills training with a consistent approach.
How Common Is Dual Diagnosis?
People who have mental illnesses are twice as likely as the rest of the population to engage in substance abuse. At the same time, people who struggle with substance abuse are also more likely to develop a mental illness or behavioral disorder. It’s an accepted fact that mental illness can lead to substance abuse, and that addiction can cause other mental illnesses.
Dual diagnosis is far more common now than it used to be. At one point, mental illness and addiction would be treated as separate conditions. A person with depression or bipolar disorder would be referred to a mental health facility.
Someone addicted to alcohol or drugs would be referred to an addiction rehab center. The problem with this approach is both conditions often did not receive adequate treatment.
For example, a patient in rehab might be discharged for not responding to treatment due to their mental disorder. Meanwhile, a person in a mental health facility might be prescribed medication to treat their disorder, but their addiction to drugs or alcohol ends up interfering.
It’s easy to see why both conditions are now treated at the same time as co-occurring disorders at most addiction treatment centers.Military Members – Take 11% Off with Code MILITARY11 at Dollar General!
