“Of the 1.1 million veterans living with a substance disorder, 25% have struggled with illicit drugs, while 80% struggled with alcohol abuse. About 7% of the 1.1 million veterans struggle with both. Veterans aren’t the only military population impacted by substance abuse, active military members are as well.” -per Arrow Passage, Veteran Substance Abuse.
This educational webinar will also mark the start of Revitalist seeing patients suffering from Alcohol Use Disorder at its Chattanooga location in Tennessee. Revitalist will be delivering Awakn's proprietary ‘Kare’ methodology. This was developed in a Phase IIb clinical trial which resulted in 86% of participants being abstinent six months post treatment.
“Many of our Veterans are silently suffering in insurmountable amounts with addictions often leading to loss of work, homelessness, and death. I am grateful to Awakn and Prof. David Nutt for taking a stand to actively intervene, bringing better science and advocacy for those struggling from addictions. Unfortunately, addiction is a term that many are very fearful of, and yet it is some of our most empathetic individuals that struggle with addictions. With Prof. Nutt and Awakn’s research expertise and Revitalist’s advancements with helping Veterans, I think our webinar will be one of great importance that can be heard and applied across the world.” - states Revitalist CEO, Kathryn Walker.
