Adler University Transitional Research Study

Participants are needed for a research study to inform a doctoral dissertation called “The Associations Among Transition Period, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Alcohol/Substance Use for Veterans.”

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the transition period and transition stress that OEF/OIF/OND veterans experience. In order to participate, you must be an OEF/OIF/OND veteran who has transitioned out of the military for at least one year. Participants will be asked to complete 4 surveys along with demographic information.

The survey should take no more than 15 minutes total. The link for the survey can be found here:
