This project examines whether minority and Caucasian postramautic stress disorder (PTSD) Veterans Affairs (VA) patients differ in substance use treatment needs, and treatment received. Analyses of variances show minorities expressed greater needs for substance treatment. However, service use did not differ, indicating a possible VA treatment disparity since minorities may have unmet substance treatment needs.
