BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Although central to the hepatitis C virus (HCV) epidemic, many patients with both substance use disorders (SUD) and HCV have difficultly engaging in treatment for either condition. To facilitate HCV care in Veterans with active SUD, a comprehensive HCV screening, education, referral, and treatment program was integrated into a VA residential SUD treatment program. METHODS: Evaluation of HCV screening, education, referral, and treatment initiative among admissions to a residential SUD treatment program from December 2014 to April 2018...

Physical aggression (towards partners or non-partners) is common among patients in treatment for substance use disorders (SUDs), including among Veteran samples; however, few treatment programs provide adjunct intervention approaches targeting reduction or prevention of aggression. The primary objectives of this comparative efficacy study were to examine the impact of adjunct aggression interventions delivered during treatment on aggression and substance use outcomes, including: a) an acute treatment phase 6-session integrated Motivational Interviewing-Cognitive Behavioral Treatment intervention (MI-CBT) for aggression and substance use prevention, b) MI-CBT plus a 12-week telephone-based Continuing Care (MI-CBT + CC) intervention, and c) an acute phase single session control condition [including some discussion of violence prevention and local violence prevention resources (Enhanced Treatment as Usual (E-TAU))]...

INTRODUCTION: Women with opioid use disorder have higher rates of unplanned pregnancies, shorter interpregnancy intervals and lower rates of contraceptive use compared to women without substance use disorders. This contributes to worse perinatal and reproductive health outcomes for this population. It has been suggested that co-location of medication assisted treatment (MAT) and reproductive health services could allow for improved outcomes among women with substance use disorders. The aim of this study was to determine if location where women received MAT influenced their pregnancy planning, interpregnancy interval or uptake of postpartum contraception between subsequent pregnancies...

Problematic drinking is a serious and persistent problem among U.S. military service members and veterans, who face barriers to seeking help and are less likely to seek help than the civilian population. One way to reach this population is through spouses or partners who are concerned about the service members' drinking (concerned partners [CPs]). CPs of military service members were recruited for a web-based intervention, Partners Connect, that aimed to improve patterns of communication about the service members' drinking...

Mental health problems like anxiety, depression, and substance use problems commonly co-occur with cigarette smoking and are linked to poor cessation outcomes. Although millions of smokers seek online quitting assistance each year, few studies have examined links between website utilization and cessation outcomes among smokers with mental health problems. This study recruited 600 smokers with anxiety, depression, and alcohol use disorders (AUDs) who were new users of a publicly available Internet cessation treatment...

PURPOSE: Over 15 million Americans have alcohol use disorder (AUD). Detoxification often occurs before treatment and is, therefore, an important component of the alcohol treatment system. Detoxification in a residential setting is indicated for certain patient populations, who often have more severe cases. This analysis examines factors associated with completion of detoxification for patients with AUD in residential facilities. DATA AND METHODS: We analyzed the 2006-2014 Treatment Episode Data Set - Discharges (TEDS-D) using logistic regression to estimate the association of a number of patient demographic, treatment, and disorder characteristics with completion of residential alcohol detoxification...

BACKGROUND: Past research shows that among individuals with substance use disorders, the presence of a co-occurring mental illness can influence the initiation, course, and success of behavioral health treatment, but little research has examined people with opioid use disorder (OUD) specifically. METHODS: Using the 2008-2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, this study examines the utilization of substance use disorder and mental health treatment among individuals with OUD and different degrees of mental illness severity...

Tobacco smoking among those seeking treatment for cannabis use disorder (CUD) is common and is a negative predictor of cannabis outcomes. Quitting tobacco may be beneficial for those seeking to quit cannabis use. This initial proof of concept, controlled trial was designed to compare a simultaneous versus sequential tobacco intervention among those seeking treatment for CUD. Sixty-seven adults received either a simultaneous (SIM) or sequential (SEQ) approach to tobacco cessation in the context of outpatient treatment for CUD...

Safe and stable housing is integral to addiction recovery. Across numerous studies, recovery housing has been found to be associated with improvements in a variety of domains. Although procedures for operating some types of recovery housing have been manualized and national standards established, there are few empirical findings identifying which recovery residence characteristics may lead to improved outcomes. Using data from 330 newly admitted residents recruited from 49 sober living houses in California and re-contacted for 6- and 12-month follow-up interviews, this study examines the effects of organizational, operational, and programming characteristics on substance use, criminal justice, and employment outcomes...

The present study aimed to compare personality profiles of alcohol use disorder and opioid use disorder patients in an inpatient chemical dependency rehabilitation unit using a multidimensional personality inventory, the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI). Ninety-six patients meeting DSM-IV-TR diagnoses for alcohol use or opioid use disorders completed the PAI at admission. Results revealed largely normative patterns across most PAI scales, though alcohol use disorder patients showed clinically elevated scores on Alcohol Problems and Drug Problems, and opioid use disorder patients showed clinical elevations on Antisocial Features, Borderline Features, and Drug Problems...

Opioid overdose deaths in the United States have risen dramatically in the past decade. In response to this public health crisis, Vermont created an innovative system called the "hub-and-spoke" (H & S) system, initiated in January 2013. The H & S system has 7 regional "hubs" that offer methadone and buprenorphine, as well as intensive support, and 77 local "spokes" (primary care settings) that offer buprenorphine (and naltrexone to a much lesser extent). Questionnaires were administered to 80 participants in the H & S system (stratified by geographic region, treatment site, and gender) and 20 participants with opioid use disorder not currently in treatment...

The extent to which patient characteristics differ between individuals entering methadone treatment through community programs and jail-based programs is not known. Such differences could impact the likelihood of relapse and recidivism in these two populations and inform efforts at targeting interventions. We compared treatment-entry characteristics of participants enrolling in methadone treatment in two studies conducted in Baltimore, one conducted in community programs (N = 295) and the other in a jail-based program (N = 225)...

BACKGROUND: Relapse, drug use, and treatment dropout are common challenges facing patients receiving methadone. Though effective, multiple barriers to face-to-face counseling exist. The Recovery Line (RL), an automated, self-management system based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is a phone-based adjunctive treatment that provides low cost, consistent delivery and immediate therapeutic availability 24 h a day. METHODS: The current study was a 12-week randomized clinical efficacy trial of treatment-as-usual (TAU) only or RL + TAU for methadone treatment patients with continued illicit drug use (N = 82)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity code (MITI) measures fidelity to, and the quality of, Motivational Interviewing (MI), and can also be used when MI is combined with other treatment methods. The current study presents a fidelity measurement with the MITI 4.2.1, in both Motivational Enhancement Therapy sessions and the combined Community Reinforcement Approach-Senior (CRAS). METHOD: The MITI 4.2.1 was used to evaluate treatment sessions provided in the Elderly Study, a multi-national randomized trial evaluating treatment for alcohol use disorders in the elderly...
