Abstract Objective In a previous report on a randomized clinical trial of a 3-month program of Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT) augmented by Work Therapy (WT) compared with WT alone for older Veterans with substance use disorder (SUD), we reported significantly greater improvements at six-month follow-up on neurocognitive outcomes of working memory and executive functions for the CRT + WT condition. However, no difference was found between conditions on substance use disorder (SUD) outcomes, ...

Abstract Cognitive motivation theories contend that individuals have greater readiness for behavioral change during critical periods or life events, and a non-fatal overdose could represent such an event. The objective of this study was to examine if the use of a specialized mobile response team (assertive outreach) could help identify, engage, and retain people who have survived an overdose into a comprehensive treatment program. We developed an intervention, consisting of mobile outreach follo...

Abstract Objective Approximately 15% of the >4000 patients presenting each year to our emergency department (ED) with a chief complaint or discharge diagnosis related to alcohol were leaving without treatment (LWT). If they are not clinically sober at the time of departure, these patients are at risk for falls or other injury. Our goal was to create an intervention to decrease this rate of early departure. Methods A stakeholder group identified the reasons why intoxicated patients were leaving w...

Abstract Background Professional treatment and non-professional mutual-help organizations (MHOs) play important roles in mitigating addiction relapse risk. More recently, a third tier of recovery support services has emerged that are neither treatment nor MHO that encompass an all-inclusive flexible approach combining professionals and volunteers. The most prominent of these is Recovery Community Centers (RCCs). RCC's goal is to provide an attractive central recovery hub facilitating the accrual...

Abstract People who use drugs (PWUD) remain at high risk for acquiring human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), both from injection and from sexual risk-taking. In 2016, 9% of 39,782 new HIV diagnoses occurred among people who inject drugs in the United States. Reaching PWUD with accurate information about and motivation for initiating pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) remains challenging and remains the first crucial step in the knowledge-attitude-behavior change continuum. This study seeks to contrib...

The participants were randomly assigned to an eight-week, six-session web-based ...
Abstract To date, few programs that integrate traditional practices with evidence-based practices have been developed, implemented, and evaluated with urban American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) using a strong research design. The current study recruited urban AI/AN teens across northern, central, and southern California during 2014–2017 to participate in a randomized controlled trial testing two cultural interventions that addressed alcohol and other drug (AOD) use. Adolescents were 14–18 ye...

Abstract Aim Treatment for opioid use disorders has recently evolved to include long-acting injectable and implantable formulations of medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD). Incorporating patient preferences into treatment for substance use disorders is associated with increased motivation and treatment satisfaction. This study sought to assess treatment preferences for long-acting injectable and implantable MOUD as compared to short-acting formulations among individuals with OUD. Methods W...
Abstract The organizational context in which substance use disorder treatment (SUDT) evidence-based practices (EBPs) are implemented plays a critical role in successful implementation. Employee behaviors that go above and beyond typical job requirements to support EBP implementation have been suggested to facilitate the likelihood of overall implementation success. The current study explored the psychometric properties of the Implementation Citizenship Behavior Scale (ICBS) within SUDT settings....
