This observational study is based on a quasi-experimental design with longitudinal data files and statistical models of deployment-related factors and military health services on the odds of long-term poor substance abuse outcomes, poor psychological outcomes (e.g., posttraumatic stress disorder, depression), thoughts of harmful behavior, and attrition from the Army, associated with service in Operation Enduring Freedom and/or Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Focus Areas: Vulnerable Populations; Trauma, Adversity, and Resilience; Bio-Psycho-Social Determinants of Health
