Co-Occurring Alcohol Use Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Alcohol–Organ Interactions: Injury and Repair

Volume 39, Number 2, 2018

Alcohol use disorder (AUD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) commonly co-occur in active military service men and women and veterans and victims of violence and sexual assault. The co-occurrence of those conditions is a public health concern because it worsens adverse health outcomes and complicates treatment for both. This issue of Alcohol Research: Current Reviews examines the current literature on the prevalence, diagnosis, causes, risk factors, and treatment for co-occurring AUD and PTSD.
