  • Flashbacks, or feeling like the event is happening again

Treating PTSD

Psychosocial interventions are key to effective treatment of both co-occurring conditions. They serve to educate individuals about both disorders, improve awareness on how these problems interact to contribute to poor outcomes, and assist in the development of coping skills to manage PTSD and substance use disorder symptoms. This dual diagnosis approach offers the best chance of lasting recovery.
