Sailor Receive Help with Addiction

The Navy is teaming up with an addiction treatment center to provide support for thousands of sailors who are struggling with alcohol and drug abuse.

The $3.25 dollar program is intended to keep sailors with addiction problems on the road to recovery and linked to support programs anywhere in the world, at any time, even when they're deployed.

It is tailored primarily to younger sailors, who are at greater risk and who are comfortable navigating the internet and social programs.

The program was developed in collaboration with Hazelden, a nonprofit alcohol and drug addiction treatment center based in Minnesota.
