PRISC has purchased and will rehabilitate and open Rose Haven, a reintegration home in Washington, NC and offer a healthy environment to continued recovery for female veterans with substance abuse.
Often this substance abuse is due to physical or emotional trauma to include PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma (MST), or other forms that are related to their military careers that have led to substance abuse, emotional anxiety, and mental stress. Female veterans experience rates of substance abuse or other emotionally-destructive behaviors, such as eating disorders, at higher rates than their male counterparts. This can be due to similar experiences of military service, and also experiences that are unique to their gender, including higher rates of MST.
PRISC will develop a program of social resilience to promote a safe harbor for its residents that will include community-based efforts to help with their transition into community living.
