Ouimette P, Moos R, Brown P. Substance use disorder-posttraumatic stress disorder comorbidity: A survey of treatments and proposed practice guidelines. In: Ouimette PC, Brown PJ, editors. Trauma and Substance Abuse: Causes, Consequences, and Treatment of Comorbid Disorders. Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Association; 2002. Chapter 5. 91-110 p.
In this chapter we critically review empirical research on the treatment course of substance use disorder-posttraumatic stress disorder (SUD-PTSD) comorbidity. We highlight treatment implications in an attempt to profile the state of the art in treating this particular comorbidity. We hope to encourage the development of a set of evidence-based practice guidelines specific to the treatment of SUD-PTSD comorbidity.
