Which drug do you think more people in the army struggle with than others?

Do you think it changes often? I know my answer has changed over the years.

What program have worked for your Soldiers?

MAJ Robert (Bob) Petrarca I was lucky, my recruiter was honest and didn't screw me over at all. We got off on a pretty good foot as I'm second gen Marine.

I hear a lot of terrible things about recruiters, but just from my own experience with my recruiter I have a hard time believing some of the stories I've heard over time. My question is are recruiters really as terrible as many people make them seem? I can't relate because my recruiter is actually Top 3 in the nation so I had a relatively great experience from the start.

MAJ (Join to see). Most studies report alcohol and prescription drug addiction . . . which are also often involved in suicides . . . not illicit drug use. Good programs include AA and many other twelve step programs. Warmest Regards, Sandy

I understand Prozac is a big issue with PTSD running rampant.

Pain meds are the big one now. Hydromorphine, Oxycodone(Oxycontin) Xanex are badly abused. Did a lot of death investigations because of pain med overdoses. We actually in Arkansas were doing a study on it when I left the department.

I'm going with alcohol on this one. If you've ever run road guard at the rear of Monday morning PT you'll know why.
