Enhancing motivation for change in substance abuse treatment by William R Miller( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chapter 1 of this TIP presents an overview of how the concepts of motivation and change have evolved in recent years and describes the "stages-of-change" model, developed by Prochaska and DiClemente and upon which this TIP is based. Chapter 2 presents interventions that can enhance clients' motivation, highlights their effective elements, and links them to the stages-of-change model. Developed by Miller and Rollnick, motivational interviewing is a therapeutic style used to interact with substance-using clients that can help them resolve issues related to their ambivalence; this is discussed in Chapter 3. Chapters 4 through 7 address the five stages of change and provide guidelines for clinicians to tailor their treatment to clients' stages of readiness for change. Various tools and instruments used to measure components of change are summarized in Chapter 8. Chapter 9 provides examples of integrating motivational approaches into existing treatment programs. As motivational interventions are still a relatively new field, there are many unanswered questions; Chapter 10 offers directions for future research. In order to avoid awkward construction and sexism, this TIP alternates between "he" and "she" for generic examples. Throughout this TIP, the term "substance abuse" has been used in a general sense to cover both substance abuse disorders and substance dependence disorders (as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition [DSM-IV] [American Psychiatric Association, 1994]). Because the term "substance abuse" is commonly used by substance abuse treatment professionals to describe any excessive use of addictive substances, commencing with this TIP, it will be used to denote both substance dependence and substance abuse disorders. The term does relate to the use of alcohol as well as other substances of abuse. Readers should attend to the context in which the term occurs in order to determine what possible range of meanings it covers; in most cases, however, the term will refer to all varieties of substance use disorders as described by the DSM-IV

Naltrexone and alcoholism treatment( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. Psychosocial treatments for alcoholism have been shown to increase abstinence rates and improve the quality of life for many alcoholics. Nonetheless, a significant proportion of alcoholics find it difficult to maintain initial treatment gains and eventually relapse to problematic drinking. Some of these individuals can now be helped with naltrexone, an opiate antagonist recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat alcohol abuse disorders. When used as an adjunct to psychosocial therapies for alcohol-dependent or alcohol-abusing patients, naltrexone can reduce (1) The percentage of days spent drinking (2) The amount of alcohol consumed on a drinking occasion (3) Relapse to excessive and destructive drinking. This TIP will help clinicians and treatment providers use naltrexone safely and effectively to enhance patient care and improve treatment outcomes. Naltrexone therapy improves treatment outcomes when added to other components of alcoholism treatment. For patients who are motivated to take the medication, naltrexone is an important and valuable tool. In many patients, a short regimen of naltrexone will provide a critical period of sobriety, during which the patient learns to stay sober without it
Improving cultural competence( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of culturally responsive clinical skills is vital to the effectiveness of behavioral health services. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), cultural competence "refers to the ability to honor and respect the beliefs, languages, interpersonal styles, and behaviors of individuals and families receiving services, as well as staff members who are providing such services. Cultural competence is a dynamic, ongoing developmental process that requires a long-term commitment and is achieved over time" (HHS 2003a, p. 12). It has also been called "a set of behaviors, attitudes, and policies that ... enable a system, agency, or group of professionals to work effectively in cross-cultural situations" (Cross et al. 1989, p. 13). This Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) uses Sue's (2001) multidimensional model for developing cultural competence. Adapted to address cultural competence across behavioral health settings, this model serves as a framework for targeting three organizational levels of treatment: individual counselor and staff, clinical and programmatic, and organizational and administrative. The chapters target specific racial, ethnic, and cultural considerations along with the core elements of cultural competence highlighted in the model. These core elements include cultural awareness, general cultural knowledge, cultural knowledge of behavioral health, and cultural skill development. The primary objective of this TIP is to assist readers in understanding the role of culture in the delivery of behavioral health services (both generally and with reference to specific cultural groups). This TIP is organized into six chapters and begins with an introduction to cultural competence. The following subheadings provide a summary of each chapter and an overview of this publication

Substance abuse treatment for persons with HIV/AIDS( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The TIP is organized into ten chapters, the first of which provides an introduction to HIV/AIDS, including the origin, life cycle, and progression of the disease. The second part of Chapter 1 provides an overview of the changes in epidemiology since 1995 when the first edition of this TIP was published. Epidemiological data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are summarized, and readers are provided with an overview of the pandemic in the regions of the United States, the current trends and populations most affected by the disease, and a discussion of special populations. Chapter 2, which is targeted to medical personnel, discusses the medical assessment and treatment of HIV/AIDS, including adherence to treatment, barriers to care, treatment and testing, pharmacology, and prophylaxis against opportunistic infections. Chapter 3, which is aimed at mental health workers, explores the mental health treatment of clients with substance abuse problems and HIV/AIDS and discusses common mental disorders, assessment and diagnosis, pharmacology, counseling, and staff issues. Chapter 4 presents issues concerning HIV prevention. These issues include assessing clients for risk, risk-reduction counseling, sexual risk reduction, prenatal and perinatal prevention, transmission of resistant strains of HIV, syringe sharing, rapid HIV testing, and infection control issues for programs. Chapter 5 discusses integrating treatment services, as well as the importance of linkages between substance abuse treatment programs and other providers. Chapter 6 provides information about case management and finding resources for HIV-infected substance abusers, including resources for substance abuse treatment, mental health, medical care, and income and other financial concerns for clients. Chapter 7 examines counseling issues, including staff training and attitudes, screening, and issues specific to the substance-abusing client with HIV/AIDS. Chapter 8 explores ethical issues, and Chapter 9 discusses legal issues and provides basic information about Federal laws regarding discrimination and confidentiality. Chapter 10, geared toward program administrators, presents information about funding sources and grantwriting. In light of the volumes of information available about HIV/AIDS, this TIP is not intended to be exhaustive. A wide array of resources is provided for those who wish to find more information on topics of interest. The appendixes in this TIP provide additional information on several topics and include the 1993 Revised Classification System for HIV and AIDS, Federal and State codes of ethics, AIDS-related Web sites, and a list of State and Territorial health agencies and AIDS hotlines
Screening and assessing adolescents for substance use disorders( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. In recognition of the importance of developing reliable, valid, and clinically useful instruments as well as procedures for screening adolescents for substance use disorders, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) in 1992 convened a Panel of experienced researchers and clinicians who work with troubled youths and their families. A year later, CSAT convened another Panel that examined substance use disorder treatment for adolescents and outlined state-of-the-art treatment guidelines. Two Treatment Improvement Protocols (TIPs 3 and 4) were developed from these efforts. Given the continued significance of assessment and treatment of adolescents' substance use, CSAT convened another Panel in 1997 to update both of the earlier TIPs. This TIP should be viewed as a companion volume to TIP 32, Treatment of Adolescents With Substance Use Disorders (CSAT, 1999), which updates TIP 4. The original Panel on adolescent substance use screening and assessment had two goals. The first was to discuss the problems of adolescent substance use disorders from the viewpoints of the Panel Members, who come from a wide spectrum of backgrounds and specialty areas. The emphasis was on practical clinical procedures to help treatment providers improve care. A second goal for the Panel was to review, from a practical perspective, available instruments, procedures, and measures for assessing adolescent substance use in various settings, including rehabilitation, that could be used easily by clinicians and other workers in the field. The Revision Panel preserved the original goals but also incorporated new research, updated summaries of previously listed instruments, and added recently developed tools. This TIP incorporates the deliberations of the 1992 Consensus Panel and the 1997 Revision Panel. It concentrates on the strategies, procedures, and instruments that are appropriate for the initial detection of substance-using adolescents, the comprehensive assessment of their problems, and subsequent treatment planning. Although the TIP summarizes many instruments, it does not endorse any screening or assessment tools. The purposes of the TIP are several: (1) To provide general guidelines for evaluating, developing, and administering screenings and assessment instruments and processes for those who screen and assess young people for substance use disorders (2) To inform a wide range of people whose work brings them in contact with adolescents in problem situations (e.g., teachers, guidance counselors, school nurses, police probation officers, coaches, and family service workers) about the processes, methods, and tools available to screen for potential substance use problems in adolescents (3) To discuss strategies and accepted techniques that can be used by treatment personnel to detect related problems in the adolescent's life, including problems with family and peers, and psychiatric issues, and to see that these problems are dealt with during the primary intervention for a substance use disorder (4) To outline a screening and assessment system designed to identify those youths with potential substance use problems in various settings Adolescents differ from adults physiologically and emotionally and are covered by different laws and social services. This revised TIP is designed to help juvenile justice, health and human service, and substance use disorder treatment personnel better identify, screen, and assess people 11 to 21 years old who may be experiencing substance-related problems. The TIP details warning signs of substance use disorders among adolescents, when to screen, when to assess, what domains besides substance use to assess, and how to involve the family and other collaterals. Also covered are the legal issues of screening and assessing teenagers, including confidentiality, duty to warn, and how to communicate with other agencies. The TIP also includes a chapter specifically for those working in the juvenile justice system who want to improve their screening and assessment procedures. Appendix A lists the citations referred to throughout this TIP and relevant to the instrument summaries. Appendix B provides up-to-date summaries of instruments relevant for screening and comprehensively assessing substance-abusing adolescents. Appendix C contains excerpts from "Drug Testing of Juvenile Detainees," a publication prepared by the American Correctional Association and the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc., under a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice

Continuity of offender treatment for substance use disorders from institution to community by Gary Field( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. It is clearly in the public interest for offenders with substance use disorders to receive appropriate treatment both in prison or jail and in the community after release. Numerous studies show that those who remain dependent on substances are much more likely to return to criminal activity. Research also indicates that treatment gains may be lost if treatment is not continued after the offender is released from prison or jail. In part, this is because release presents offenders with a difficult transition from the structured environment of the prison or jail. Many prisoners after release have no place to live, no job, and no family or social supports. They often lack the knowledge and skills to access available resources for adjustment to life on the outside, all factors that significantly increase the risk of relapse and recidivism. This TIP presents guidelines for ensuring continuity of care as offenders with substance use disorders move from incarceration to the community. The guidelines are for treatment providers in prisons, jails, community corrections, and other institutions, as well as community providers. The following recommendations are based on a combination of research and the clinical experience of the Consensus Panel that developed this TIP. Recommendations based on research are denoted with a (1); those based on experience are followed by a (2). Citations supporting the former appear in Chapters 1 through 6. References to specific programs appear throughout those chapters as well; Appendix B provides contact information for many of those model programs
