I am a veteran with 2 tours of NI in the 80's I do not suffer as far as I know from PTSD but I am an alcoholic with nearly 18 years continuous sobriety. I along with 28 other regional armed service officers in Alcoholics Anonymous try to help serving soldiers, veterans and their families also.
At a May 2019 committee meeting in York where all the region reps met the common feedback was that soldiers and veterans suffering from PTSD were unable to receive their much needed treatment due to ongoing issues with alcohol and/or drugs.
I then contacted WDC to offer my assistance which they agreed to, asking me to join the board. If I can help any sufferers or their families to deal with any problems that they may have with alcohol then you are more than welcome to call me on 07764 610462 all calls will be treated with the utmost confidence.
