Prevalence and predictors of quitline enrollment following hospital referral in real-world clinical practice
Tobacco quitlines are effective, and work best for callers who receive three or more counseling sessions. Clinical settings are adopting quitline referral as a method for providing cessation support but little is known regarding enrollment and engagement following these referrals. We used data from quitline fax-back reports to describe enrollment and treatment engagement of 878 hospitalized patients who smoke who were referred via secure email to quitline at discharge. We compared patient demographics, tobacco characteristics, and treatment engagement between those enrolled and not enrolled. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

Telemedicine-delivered treatment interventions for substance use disorders: A systematic review
With increased negative impacts from opioid and other substance use disorders in the US, it is important for treatments to not only be effective, but also accessible to patients. Treatment delivery via telemedicine, specifically, the use of videoconferencing, which allows real time communication between a patient and a clinician at a distant site, has been shown to be an effective approach for increasing reach and access of treatments for mental health disorders and other chronic illnesses. This systematic review identified and summarized studies examining the effectiveness of telemedicine interventions to deliver treatmen...

In this study, a sample of 644 adults (43.8% male, 32.6% White, 57.0% Black, 90.2% ages 36+) residing in subsidized housing was used to determine the agreement between self-reported use and saliva toxicological testing for marijuana, cocaine, PCP, amphetamine, and methamphetamine at three different time points.

Understanding site variability in a multisite clinical trial of a technology-delivered psychosocial intervention for substance use disorders
Significant fixed effects of site (main effects of site and/or site by treatment interactions) on primary outcome have been identified in the majority of studies performed by NIDA's National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network. While rarely explored, identifying patient- and site-level variables that are associated with site effects can provide information about the context in which outcome is optimized.

Is fidelity to motivational interviewing associated with alcohol outcomes in treatment-seeking 60+ year-old citizens?
Part of the variability in treatment outcomes for Motivational Interviewing (MI) may be explained by differences in the fidelity to MI. The Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity manual version 4 (MITI 4) is an improved measure of fidelity to elements of MI. It is not known whether the fidelity to MI, as measured by the MITI 4, is related to treatment outcome. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

Cost effectiveness of text messages to reduce methamphetamine use and HIV sexual risk behaviors among men who have sex with men
Methamphetamine use is highly prevalent among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in the United States and has been associated with condomless anal intercourse (CAI), a common route of HIV infection. Text messaging is a very low-cost method of delivery for intervention content. This paper presents a cost-effectiveness analysis of a randomized controlled trial testing three nested methods of text message delivery designed to reduce methamphetamine use and HIV sexual risk behaviors among MSM (Project Tech Support2).

The association between county-level safety net treatment access and opioid hospitalizations and mortality in New York
Increases in pharmaceutical opioid sales have paralleled the quadrupling of prescription opioid overdose deaths and spikes in emergency department visits for non-medical opioid prescription overdoses. In response, federal and state governments have advanced a myriad of policies to reduce opioid availability and increase treatment access, aimed to ultimately reduce opioid-related mortality. Despite these efforts, including ACA Medicaid expansion and more robust prescription drug monitoring programs, opioid-related mortality has continued to rise in NY and 29 other states.

Establishing the feasibility, acceptability and preliminary efficacy of a multi-component behavioral intervention to reduce pain and substance use and improve physical performance in older persons living with HIV
Older persons living with HIV (PLWH), often defined as age 50  years and older, are a rapidly growing population, with high rates of chronic pain, substance use, and decreased physical functioning. No interventions currently exist that address all three of these health outcomes simultaneously. An 8-week behavioral intervention combining cognitive-behavioral therapy and tai chi reinforced with text messaging (CBT/TC/TXT) was developed and pilot tested in a community-based AIDS service organization with substance using PLWH aged 50 years and older who experienced chronic pain.

A pilot study of Counsel to Quit ®: Evaluating an Ask Advise Refer (AAR)-based tobacco cessation training for medical and mental healthcare providers
Despite tobacco use as the largest preventable cause of premature death in the US, many healthcare providers continue to lack the knowledge and confidence in employing the Ask, Advise, Refer (AAR) model in tobacco cessation treatment delivery. This pilot study evaluated the feasibility and effectiveness of a novel AAR-styled training program, Counsel to Quit ®, across a range of healthcare providers and disciplines (i.e., medical, mental health, other). The Counsel to Quit® training program primarily targeted publically-funded settings that serve communities with high smoking rates. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

Using clinical decision support through the electronic medical record to increase prescribing of high-dose parenteral thiamine in hospitalized patients with alcohol use disorder
Patients with alcohol use disorder (AUD) are at an increased risk of developing Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE), a devastating and difficult diagnosis caused by thiamine deficiency. Even as AUD is present in up to 25% of hospitalized patients on medical floors, appropriate thiamine supplementation in the hospital setting remains inadequate. These patients are particularly susceptible to thiamine deficiency and subsequent WE due to both their alcohol use and active medical illnesses. The electronic medical record (EMR) has become ubiquitous in health care systems and can be used as a tool to improve the care of hospitalized ...

Excellent reliability and validity of the Addiction Medicine Training Need Assessment Scale across four countries
Addiction is a context specific but common and devastating condition. Though several evidence-based treatments are available, many of them remain under-utilized, among others due to the lack of adequate training in addiction medicine (AM). AM Training needs may differ across countries because of difference in discipline and level of prior AM training or contextual factors like epidemiology and availability of treatment. For appropriate testing of training needs, reliability and validity are key issues. (Source: Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment)

The effect of referral to expedited Medicaid on substance use treatment utilization among people with serious mental illness released from prison
Adults released from incarceration are at high risk of death from drug-related causes, pointing to the importance of connecting individuals to healthcare services after release from prison.
