JoAnne joined the army right out of high school as an ROTC college student. She wanted to joined the armed forces since as long as she could remember. She idolized her grandfather who was a Vietnam Veteran so it was a family tradition . Before long, JoAnne found herself in the midst of an American Crisis.
Soon after 9-11-01 she found herself being deployed to Iraq. She did three tours of duty and found herself struggling as her mind constantly replayed some of the devistations of war. Joanne began to drink alcohol, something she hadn’t done much prior. Joanne found her mind would rest as she had her second/third/fourth shot. She began drinking during the day and her depression grew deeper as she isolated from her family and friends.
After being confronted by family and friends, Joanne realized she needed help. She joined the program at Recovery Zone Solutions as it specialized in a fully virtual Cognitive Behavioral online program, one of the leading therapies for PTSD and depression. Joanne began to visualize a safe future. She learned coping skills and with the assistance and regulatory weekly therapy sessions with a highly trained fully licensed RZS Therapist she was able to stop using substances and face her past .
