Drug use disorders (DUDs) are highly prevalent with over 20 million individuals throughout the US having a DUD in 2016 (Ahrnsbrak, 2016). DUDs co-occurring with other psychiatric illnesses (e.g., depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), general anxiety disorder) are a clinically prevalent subpopulation, with 27-73% of DUD patients diagnosed with DUD comorbidity (Ahrnsbrak, 2016). Persons with DUD comorbidity have poorer mental health outcomes than persons with DUD alone - including more complex and costly treatment plans (Hoff and Rosenheck, 1999), poorer treatment responses (Grella et al., 2001), and greater ris...

Recent findings from the World Mental Health Survey Consortium confirm that traumatic events are common, with over 70% of individuals endorsing at least one lifetime traumatic event and approximately one third endorsing four or more traumatic events (Benjet et al., 2016). Among a national sample of U.S. adults, 89.7% were exposed to at least one traumatic event, with 8.3% of exposed individuals reporting posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) during their lifetime (Kilpatrick et al., 2013). PTSD increases risk for a number of significant deleterious psychological (e.g., depression, substance use disorders, anxiety; Sareen et...
