The Recovery Village

An organization with locations across the country dedicated to helping those struggling with substance abuse into recovery. We understand the unique struggles military personnel and their families experience and how their selfless role can be both rewarding and stressful, causing some to turn to various forms of substance abuse to cope; we believe education can help prevent this.
Our new resource outlines the mental effects of deployment, combat, and separation, among other relatable subjects, the signs and consequences of substance abuse, and how to get help for those who are using substances to cope.

A "how-to” guide for Vets on getting everything started in their entrepreneurial adventure. I thought it was more reader-friendly than others I've come across. It was independently written, so it did a great job at highlighting the best resources available and there's a bunch of opportunities I didn't know existed. Also has a helpful section on the most advantageous loans and grants available and how to seek them out and qualify. --Ryan

Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and ships because of its resistance to fire. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma even qualify for special benefits from the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs.
