Almost one out of every three veterans seeking treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) also has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is important to learn the diagnostic criteria, evidence-based treatment, and commonly associated problems with co-occurring SUD and PTSD. However, it is equally important to understand the unique culture of service members, veterans, and their families. With the goal of supporting those who serve and their families, NAADAC presents our newest specialty training webinar series: Addiction Treatment in Military & Veteran Culture presented by Duane K. L. France, MA, MBA, LPC.

After completing this six-part webinar series, attendees will be able to demonstrate a greater understanding of co-occurring disorders within military-affiliated populations. Those who successfully attend the full webinar series and pass all six CE quizzes for this six-part series will be eligible to apply for the Certificate of Achievement for Addiction Treatment in Military & Veteran Culture.

Each webinar in the series is worth 1.5 CEs and costs $25 each.
