PTSD and alcohol abuse go hand-in-hand, but males and females exhibit symptoms differently. Through intricate experiments designed to account for sex-specific differences, scientists have zeroed-in on certain changes in the brain that may be responsible for driving alcohol abuse among people with PTSD.

Such differences are not typically accounted for in laboratory-based studies yet could lead to more successful clinical treatments. Source 8a.
