Abstract

Clinicians (N = 138) who treat adolescents with co-occurring Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance use disorder (SUD), (PTSD+SUD) were surveyed about their attitudes and practice behaviors. Most providers were trained in PTSD treatment; fewer were trained in SUD or PTSD+SUD treatments. PTSD+SUD treatment was rated more difficult than treatment of other diagnoses. Providers typically addressed symptoms of PTSD and SUD separately and sequentially, rather than with integrated approaches. There was no consensus about which clinical strategies to use with adolescent PTSD+SUD. Continued treatment development, training, and dissemination efforts are needed to equip providers with resources to deliver effective treatments to adolescents with PTSD+SUD.
