Eric Newhouse - The Man

Eric Newhouse has earned his reputation as a crusading journalist, winning the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for a yearlong series of stories about alcoholism. Through personal, in-depth interviews, he has seen the devastation caused by PTSD from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the ongoing trauma for veterans from Vietnam and other American conflicts. Newhouse's crusade is to get the young men and women who have served their country on the battlefields the help that they need... and deserve.

Alcohol: Cradle to Grave

A reprinting of Eric Newhouse's Pulitizer Prize-winning articles in book format. He's seen what he refers to as the flotsam and jetsam of human life: the divorces, lost jobs, battered wives and children, crime, drunken drivers, car wrecks, and medical bills. And, he's come to the conclusion that alcohol is behind much of it. This book, Alcohol: Cradle to Grave, offers a compelling, day-in-the-life look at how the disease of alcoholism affects Great Falls, Montana in particular and the state of Montana in general.

Faces of Combat - The Book

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Eric Newhouse issues a call to help America's returning warriors in his latest book, Faces of Combat, PTSD and TBI: One Journalist's Crusade to Improve Treatment for Our Veterans. His concern is that one-third to one-half of the 1.6 million men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan can be expected to return home with one or all three emotional disorders -- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), or major depression. But the Veterans Administration is already overloaded in treating soldiers from previous conflicts, primarily Vietnam vets who never received the help they needed and deserved.
