Integrating Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Use Disorder
Ford, Julian D.; Russo, Eileen M.; Mallon, Sharon D.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v85 n4 p475-489 Fall 2007
Historically, administrators and clinicians have been hesitant to address posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the treatment of substance use disorders (SUDs). However, research shows that SUD treatment recruitment and outcomes may be adversely affected if co-occurring PTSD is left untreated. The authors provide guidelines for screening and assessment, treatment services, and workforce and organizational development that are designed to facilitate integrated PTSD-SUD treatment. Case examples illustrate the necessary precautions related to and the potential benefits of integrating treatment of PTSD and SUD.
