Seeking safety vs. treatment-as-usual for male veterans

Seeking Safety appears to improve attendance, satisfaction and coping, but makes no difference in drug use:

Findings: Seeking Safety (SS) compared to Treatment As Usual (TAU) was associated with better drug use outcomes, but alcohol use and PTSD severity decreased equally under both treatments. SS versus TAU was associated with increased treatment attendance, client satisfaction and active coping. However, neither these factors nor decreases in PTSD severity mediated the effect of treatment on drug use.
