Abstract

This study used mixed methods to evaluate Seeking Safety (a cognitive-behavioral based therapy for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders) with a mixed-gender group. The authors analyzed posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptom change and feedback among clients of a recovery facility in Arizona (N = 156). Pre–post and correlational analyses were performed. Attendance was associated with reductions in PTSD symptoms (t = 2.56, p =.006; F = 2.86, p =.06) with no difference for gender. A strong positive correlation was found between ratings of session helpfulness and likeliness to use session skills (r =.90, p <.001). Qualitative data analyzed for module themes are also discussed.
