Study finds reduction in symptoms, greater relationship satisfaction

HealthDay SHARE

The study included 55 people on the integrated therapy with 48 people on the usual substance abuse therapy. Both groups had improvements in PTSD symptom scores, but the integrated group saw larger gains. There were no significant differences in relation to substance use, depression or anxiety between the two treatment groups.
