The CDP's weekly research update contains the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the web. Some of this week's topics include:
• Posttraumatic stress disorder in veterans and military personnel: Epidemiology, screening, and case recognition.
• Energy Drink Consumption and Its Association with Sleep Problems Among U.S. Service Members on a Combat Deployment —Afghanistan, 2010.
The veteran’s court model is based on drug treatment and/or mental health treatment courts. Substance abuse or mental health treatment is offered as an alternative to incarceration. Typically, veteran mentors assist with the programs. An important issue that has to be addressed is the eligibility for veteran’s courts in terms of whether charges involving felonies or crimes of violence will be allowed. The inclusion of offenders charged with inter-family violence is also of grave concern to policy makers.
We've reached the end of another week, but before we get to the long holiday weekend we've got the latest CDP News update.
