My career goals are to complete my Doctorate Degree in Addiction and Co-Occurring Substance Use Disorders. I selected this field to help Veterans that are mentally and physically hurting. I returned from Viet Nam being depressed thinking no one cared about my issues. I tried to reach out for help and was told to be a man. There was no one to talk to about being a combat veteran at that time. I turned to alcohol to help me cope with feeling like a man without a country. The nation during that era had turned it back on the Viet Nam veterans. The best way to cope was not to mentions that you had been in Viet Nam. Today the veterans are treated differently, however, veterans are still using drugs and alcohol to cope with life issues after being in the war zones. Veterans are still committing suicide and dying needless deaths because of being isolated within their own body and mind. Understanding how veterans think, I have walked in their shoes. Knowing how demons warped the mind can get, I was on the brink of going under when I decided to reached out for help and received it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
