About the Course:
This course discusses the treatment of veterans with PTSD and substance use issues. It examines specialized intensive VA treatment such as: Evaluation/Brief Treatment PTSD Units (EBTPUs), Specialized Inpatient PTSD Units (SIPUs), and PTSD Residential Rehabilitation Programs (PRRPs). Substance abuse outcomes were measured by the Addiction Severity Index (ADI). Clinical status was measured by the Short Form of the Mississippi Scale for PTSD (MISS), which was developed to assess combat PTSD symptoms. Various clinical variables were measures, including violence. Many correlations were noted, however causality was not established.
This course is based on the article, Correlates of Improvement in Substance Abuse among Dually Diagnosed Veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Specialized Intensive VA Treatment created by Kendell L. Coker, Ph.D., J.D. et al. in 2016.
