While PTSD is commonly associated with war, anyone who has undergone trauma can experience residual symptoms from the distressing event after it has ended. This discussion will explain the role of PTSD in substance use that results in a co-occurring disorder and its effects. Further, we will outline the signs of co-occurring PTSD and substance use, the need for awareness and readiness for change in our patients, and available levels of care for those afflicted with these conditions. Further discussion will include:

  • What do levels of care from inpatient hospitalization, outpatient programming and down to outpatient therapy look like?
  • Why would a patient go to inpatient vs. outpatient programming vs. outpatient therapy/medication management
  • How can we, as mental health providers, stay current with knowledge and practices in the field of PTSD & Substance Use?
