Points to Remember about Drug and Alcohol Use

for Veterans and the Public

Drugs and Alcohol: Points to remember

  • Most people are willing to take some risks, and using drugs and alcohol is no exception. But when alcohol or other drugs become an escape that you rely upon, it can be dangerous to your mental and physical health.
  • Before you drink or use drugs, it is important to think about what risks you are willing to take.
  • If you would like to cut back on your use of alcohol or other drugs, talk to your VA doctor about getting help and finding the treatment you need.
