The National Guard's New Initiative: Prevention, Treatment and Outreach

We don't want to lose this very valuable investment because of the stress and some of the substance use and mental health disorders that they may experience as a result of war.
In a recent episode of One Hour at a Time, host Mary Woods spoke with Beverly Watts Davis, Senior Advisor on Substance Abuse and Mental Health at SAMHSA, about the National Guard's new initiative to support soldiers with co-occurring substance use disorders and mental illnesses. The Prevention, Treatment, and Outreach (PTandO) Initiative aims to provide soldiers with the resources they need to manage their health and well-being, including peer-to-peer training and expanded local resources for healthcare.
Davis also discussed the relationship between substance abuse and HIV/AIDS, the importance of testing for hepatitis C, and the role of faith institutions in addressing HIV/AIDS in African American communities. The episode provides valuable insights into the challenges faced by soldiers and the importance of prevention, treatment, and outreach for their recovery.
