Four studies in this issue examine services for veterans. Eric B. Elbogen, Ph.D., and colleagues looked at response data from post-9/11 veterans in the National Post-Deployment Adjustment Survey. Many studies of post-9/11 veterans have documented low rates of mental health service utilization. However, most studies looked at use in the first year postdeployment. In the sample studied by Dr. Elbogen and colleagues, the median time since deployment was four years. The sample had high rates of probable posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depression; however, nearly two-thirds of these veterans reported past-year use of services. The finding of these notably higher rates is “a valuable message to communicate to veterans,” the authors conclude, and may reduce some veterans’ ambivalence about accessing care (page 134). Providing the best care for veterans with PTSD is a priority and a challenge. PTSD treatment guidelines developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) emphasize use of certain medications and discourage use of others. Thad E. Abrams, M.D., M.S., and colleagues analyzed prescriptions written by VA mental health providers and VA primary care providers for more than 350,000 veterans with PTSD. They found that providers continued to prescribe medications not supported by the guidelines and that the rates of inappropriate prescription were higher among mental health providers (page 142). The same VA research group sought to understand factors underlying benzodiazepine prescribing for veterans with PTSD despite guideline warnings. When Brian C. Lund, Pharm.D., and colleagues examined variation in prescribing practices across 137 VA facilities, they found that patient characteristics played a negligible role, but several facility characteristics were significant correlates of increased benzodiazepine prescribing (page 149). Finally, in a retrospective, ten-year study of nearly 6,000 veterans who had received VA substance abuse treatment, Jennifer L. Humensky, Ph.D., and colleagues found low rates of employment six months after treatment. Only 35% of the veterans reported having had paid work in the previous 30 days, and unemployment rates were especially high among those with comorbid anxiety and general medical conditions (page 177).
