Distress Tolerance as a Predictor of Depressive and Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms in a Substance Use Disorder In-Patient Treatment Sample

 Distress Tolerance as a Predictor of Depressive and Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms in a Substance Use Disorder In-Patient Treatment Sample

Previous research has revealed significant associations between distress tolerance (DT) with the maintenance and extinction of various symptoms of psychopathology. The current study investigated DT as a predictor of symptom experience in depression, and posttraumatic stress symptoms (PSS) in a substance abuse population. Participants were 64 men and women enrolled in a residential substance abuse treatment facility who completed self-report measures of DT, depressive symptoms, and PSS. Results demonstrated that DT significantly predicted both depressive symptoms and PSS.
