Many substance-dependent women seeking treatment for substance use disorders (SUDs) have been exposed to chronic interpersonal violence and may suffer psychiatric sequelae of trauma in the form of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The majority of substance abuse programs do not regularly assess for trauma histories, so women do not receive treatment for comorbid trauma-related problems. An integrated model is recommended by both clinicians and researchers as more likely to succeed, more cost-effective, and more sensitive to these patient's unique needs. Protocol CTN-0015, the CTN "Women and Trauma" study, took one of the next steps in advancing research in this area through a randomized control trial comparing Seeking Safety (SS) to an attention control group (WHE) in the context of ongoing community-based substance abuse treatment. This poster describes the design of the program, presents the results, and addresses some of the challenges faced by the researchers and clinicians involved.
