Supporting military service member mission readiness, health and wellness


The experiences of military service members can be very stressful and may lead to problematic drug & alcohol use - especially for those who’ve been deployed to combat. The military’s zero-tolerance policies and the high level of stigma attributed to drug & alcohol misuse prevent many from getting the help they need.

Program Overview

The goal of the Frontline Program is to help any service member who is misusing illicit drugs, prescription medications, and/or alcohol to improve their quality of life and return to productive and unrestricted duty.

Trauma & Mental Health Conditions

It’s common for people with substance use problems to also have a mental health condition occurring at the same time. This is referred to as dual diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder.

Service members experiencing a mental health condition may turn to alcohol or drugs as a form of self-medication.

The most common mental health conditions reported are PTSD, anxiety and depression.

It is critical for members to receive integrated care that address both the substance use and mental health condition at the same time.


Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Service members exposed to combat trauma and/or military sexual trauma (MST) are at a heightened risk of developing PTSD.

 Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Common behavioural and psychological symptoms that they may experience include:

 Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Nightmares and flashbacks
  • Severe anxiety
  • Heightened reactivity to stimuli
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Dramatic mood swings
  • Social Isolation and self-destructive behavior
  • Using substances to cope & self-medicate

Some trauma survivors may achieve complete recovery. However, others may develop a persistent mental disorder in which they are severely and chronically incapacitated.

Levels of Care

Each individual has different needs when it comes to substance abuse and mental health treatment.

At Northpoint we offer a full continuum of care that facilitates movement to higher or lower levels of treatment as necessary

Level 1:
Outpatient Services
Level 2:
Intensive Outpatient Services
Level 3:

Note: It is critical to match individuals to the appropriate level of care based on their unique history. Our licensed clinicians will do a thorough assessment of the service member to determine which level of care is required for optimal results.
