In some cases, military personnel who are caught with drugs are suffering
from a serious substance addiction. Other times, the individual is experiencing
post-traumatic stress disorder or has suffered a traumatic brain injury.
NIDA reports on a study which discovered that 27 percent of soldiers returning
from Iraq met the criteria for a classification of alcohol abuse and were
at increased risk for developing a drug abuse problem. Unfortunately,
those who fail a
drug test urinalysis or who are caught
using drugs are frequently given harsh punishments which ruin their military career
and which may continue to cause them problems for the rest of their lives.
