Our Nation’s commandos and first responders have made the heroic decision to confront some of the most challenging and traumatic situations this world has to offer. Sadly, some of these individuals end up turning to drugs and/or alcohol in order to cope with the unique consequences that accompany this honorable life of service.
Constant exposure to trauma, life-threatening situations, and the physical strain of working long hours on little to no sleep can negatively impact overall mental health, increasing the vulnerability and risk of substance abuse and addiction among commandos and first responders. Further, various stigmas like self-stigma, anticipated stigma, and public stigma plays a significant factor as to why these elite individuals don’t seek help. Just like it takes a team to neutralize a terrorist cell, secure a target, or eliminate a life-compromising fire, it takes a team to wage war on addiction and neutralize these stigmas. TTP is here to have the individual’s back and create the dominance needed to fight this war.
