About the Course:
The Iraq War Clinician Guide was developed by members of the National Center for PTSD and the Department of Defense. It was developed specifically for clinicians and addresses the unique needs of veterans of the Iraq war. Chapter 12 proposes a simple process to screen individuals for substance abuse. The authors suggest that care providers employ the screen in the three phases of pre-deployment, in the combat zone, and upon evacuation. The data gained at each juncture will help the clinician’s decision-making process in clarifying the contribution of substance use to a muddled clinical picture, taking appropriate treatment steps, forestalling some unnecessary evacuations, and prompting the best match between the individual’s needs and the military mission.
This course is based on the reading-based online, Iraq War Clinician Guide, Second Edition: Substance Abuse in the Deployment Environment created by R. Gregory Lande, DO FACN, Barbara A. Marin, Ph.D., and Josef I. Ruzek Ph.D.
