My brother returned from Iraq about six months ago and he'd been telling me that he was having trouble sleeping and having nightmares as well. So I encouraged him to get in to talk to someone. He went in and talked to someone about what he's been dealing with when he admitted to drinking alcohol on occasion to help him get to sleep and they diagnosed him with having alcohol dependency issues sending him to Substance Abuse and Rehabilitation (SARP) and forced him to attend AA meetings. That was all that was done to assist him and needless to say I am very frustrated and disappointed he was treated this way. What I am looking for are suggests on how I can 1) go about getting him the help he desperately needs and 2) what channels I can go through to file a grievance for the way this was handled? Thank you for your time and any suggestions/stories you have.
Brad
