What is PTSD?
Symptoms of PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms may start within one month of a traumatic event.
But sometimes symptoms may not appear until years after the event.
These symptoms can cause significant problems in social or work situations and in relationships. PTSD symptoms can interfere with the ability to go about normal daily tasks.
Symptoms can vary over time. PTSD symptoms also vary from person to person.
Veteran PTSD Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Studies show PTSD and substance use problems are strongly related in people who served in the military; and in civilians. Some people try to cope with PTSD symptoms by drinking heavily, using drugs, or smoking too much.
The Good News: PTSD Dual Diagnosis Treatment Works.
New Start Recovery Solutions evidence-based integrated treatment for veterans targets both PTSD and alcohol or substance abuse at the same time.
PTSD symptoms can include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety or intrusive thoughts about the event. Most people who experience traumatic events have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping.
If trauma symptoms get worse – or last more than 3 months and interfere with day-to-day functioning: you may have PTSD.
Among veterans from all eras, symptoms of PTSD have been strongly associated with hazardous drinking and/or substance abuse. Alcohol or drug abuse decreases overall health – and increases the difficulties in readjusting to civilian life. A dual diagnosis of co-occurring PTSD and alcohol or drug abuse is more serious than PTSD alone.
The good news: evidence based integrated dual diagnosis treatment is effective.
