Delray Beach, FL - June is PTSD Awareness Month which serves to shed light on the many men and women facing the hardships associated with this mental health disorder. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has reported that as many as 8 percent of the U.S. population suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD Awareness Month aims to raise awareness about the mental health disorder so that those in need can receive effective treatment and avoid turning to drugs or alcohol in an attempt to self-medicate their symptoms.

According to data from the National Institute of Mental Health, 36.6 percent of adults who suffer from the symptoms of PTSD experience serious symptoms while a further 33.1 percent experience moderate symptoms.

Lack of treatment in serious and moderate cases of PTSD often results in people seeking relief through drugs or alcohol. Individuals with PTSD symptoms, according to the National Center of Biotechnology Information (NCBI), are between 2 and 4 times more susceptible to developing substance use disorder (SUD). Studies that focused on alcohol use disorder showed that as many as 46.4 percent of people with PTSD symptoms also met the criteria for alcohol use disorder.

The overwhelming evidence linking trauma and PTSD with addiction stresses the importance of finding help for PTSD, and SUD if it has already taken hold. In these cases, the underlying cause of addiction is the presence of untreated PTSD symptoms. Therefore, to be able to sustain recovery from addiction, the root cause must be addressed.
