Budget impact tool for the incorporation of medications for opioid use disorder into jail/prison facilities
Given the personal and public consequences of untreated/undertreated OUD among persons involved in the justice system, an increasing number of jails and prisons are incorporating medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) into their system. Estimating the costs of implementing and sustaining a particular MOUD program is vital to detention facilities, which typically face modest, fixed health care budgets. We developed a customizable budget impact tool to estimate the implementation and sustainment costs of numerous MOUD delivery models for detention facilities.

Racial/ethnic differences in medication for addiction treatment for opioid use disorders among pregnant women in treatment facilities supported by state funds
Medication for addiction treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD) in pregnant women is known to improve neonatal health outcomes. Despite the benefits of this evidence-based treatment for OUD, MAT has been underutilized during pregnancy among certain racial/ethnic groups of women in the United States. The purpose of this study was to examine racial/ethnic differences and factors that affect MAT administration among pregnant women with OUD seeking treatment at publicly funded facilities.

The relative contribution of ethnic identity and ethnic discrimination on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use disorders among Hispanic/Latin American individuals
Racial/ethnic discrimination and ethnic identity, the affiliation and connection to one's ethnic group, are important for understanding alcohol, tobacco, and drug use disorders (AUD, TUD, DUD, respectively) among Hispanic/Latin American individuals. Although discrimination is a well-recognized risk factor, the role of ethnic identity is less understood. Moreover, no study has examined which of these factors is more important for informing AUD, TUD, and DUD. This information is necessary for creating effective prevention and treatment programs tailored for Hispanic/Latin American people. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

Exploring the mediating role of baseline urinalysis results on demographic characteristics and stimulant use disorder treatment outcomes
Baseline stimulant urinalysis (UA) is one of the most reliable predictors of stimulant use disorder treatment outcomes. Yet we know little about the role of baseline stimulant UA mediating the effects of different baseline characteristics on treatment outcomes. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

Implementation of a hospital-based intervention for MOUD initiation and referral to a Bridge Clinic for opioid use disorder
Individuals struggling with opioid use disorder (OUD) utilize the adult emergency department (ED) and psychiatric emergency department at high rates. In 2019, Vanderbilt University Medical Center created a system for individuals identified in the emergency department with OUD to transition care to a Bridge Clinic for up to three months of comprehensive behavioral health treatment, alongside primary care, infectious diseases, and pain management, regardless of their insurance status.

Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) for cannabis: A scoping review
Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) has been used to change substance use behavior. Despite cannabis being the most prevalent federally illicit substance, we have limited understanding of use of SBIRT for managing cannabis use. This review aimed to summarize the literature on SBIRT for cannabis use across age groups and contexts over the last two decades. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

“I didn't even know headspace had the drug thing until today”: A socio-ecological analysis of access to drug and alcohol interventions in integrated youth health care services
While this Australian example of an integrated youth health care model is well placed to provide YP AOD interventions, a mismatch existed between practitioner capability and YP needs. The sampled practitioners described limited AOD knowledge, and low confidence in providing AOD interventions. At the organizational level, multiple AOD intervention supply and utilization issues occurred. Taken together, these problems likely underlie previous findings of poor service utilization and low user satisfaction. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

Crystal methamphetamine use and methadone maintenance treatment dissatisfaction: A prospective cohort study in Vancouver, Canada
Patient satisfaction is key to the success of methadone maintenance treatment (MMT), and yet how MMT satisfaction is affected by the increasingly common use of crystal methamphetamine among people receiving opioid treatment remains poorly understood. We aimed to assess the association between crystal methamphetamine use and MMT dissatisfaction. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)
