List of Studies


The need to advance knowledge and increase access to treatment for co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance use disorders (SUD) is a priority for service members and Veterans. PTSD and SUD often co-occur and are two of the most common and debilitating mental health disorders among service members and Veterans. However, few providers are trained in this approach and therefore are not prepared to deliver best practice care to Veterans who need integrated PTSD/SUD treatment.
This project will directly address this critical gap in provider training to improve the care of Veterans with comorbid PTSD/SUD, by providing development and testing of a web-based provider training course for concurrent treatment of PTSD and SUD Using prolonged exposure (COPE).
