There is a critical need to improve linkage to alcohol care for veterans in primary care with hazardous drinking and PTSD and/or depression symptoms (A-MH). We adapted an alcohol care linkage intervention, “Connect to Care” (C2C), for this population. We conducted separate focus groups with veterans with A-MH, providers, and policy leaders. Feedback centered on how psychologists and other providers can optimally inform veterans about their care options and alcohol use, and how to ensure C2C is accessible. Participants reported that veterans with A-MH may not view alcohol use as their primary concern but rather as a symptom of a potential co-occurring mental health condition. Veterans have difficulty identifying and accessing existing alcohol care options within the Veterans Health Administration. C2C was modified to facilitate alcohol care linkage for this population specific to their locality, provide concrete support and education, and offer care options to preserve privacy.
