Abstract:

Substance use disorders SUD and Posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD are some of the most prominent psychiatric disorders among Service Members SMs, including the Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom OEFOIF cohort. These disorders sometimes go untreated due to SMs lack of awareness, access to care, or stigma about accessing care. Seeking Safety SS has been established as an effective model for co-occurring SUDPTSD. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the SS manual and Adherence Scale for implementation in a military setting. We have made substantial progress in moving the project forward, but as yet there are no research findings to report.
