5 Who Needs Treatment? Heavy/at Risk drinkers Medical Impact even without a “diagnosis”Diagnosis of Alcohol Abuse - where symptoms increase likelihood of further sanctions due to impaired judgment/controlDUI, assault, loss of external social supports, missed appointmentsDiagnosis of Alcohol DependenceImpairment, disability
6 The Scope of Alcohol Problems in the Criminal Justice System 21.6 percent of victims of violent crimes thought or knew the offender had consumed alcohol; another 1.5 percent of the victims thought the offender had used either alcohol or another drug (Bureau of Justice Statistics 2003).40 percent of offenders on probation, in State prisons, or in local jails reported using alcohol at the time of their offense (Bureau of Statistics 1998).18 percent of Federal prison inmates and about 25 percent of State prison inmates reported having experienced problems consistent with a history of alcohol abuse and dependence (Knight et al. 2002).29 percent of Federal and 40 percent of State prisoners reported a previous domestic violence dispute involving alcohol (Knight et al. 2002).There were 1.4 million DWI arrests in 2001, making DWI the number one crime, besides drug possession, for which Americans are arrested (NHTSA 2003).About two-thirds of convicted DWI offenders are alcohol dependent (Lapham et al. 2001).
7 The Scope of Alcohol Problems in the Criminal Justice System In a study of first-time DWI offenders interviewed 5 years after first being referred to screening following their DWI offense (Lapham et al. 2001):85% of female and 91% of male DWI offenders had met the criteria for alcohol abuse or dependence at some time in their lives.32% of female and 38% of male offenders had met criteria for abuse of or dependence on another drug at some time in their lives.50% of women with an alcohol use disorder and 33% of men with an AUD also had at least one psychiatric disorder (not drug-related), most commonly depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
8 Why Are Alcohol Use Disorders (AUD) Underdiagnosed ≈ 50% time? Clinicians:Typically lack proper training in screening and recognitionMiss diagnosis if presentation is not obvious, e.g. “skid row bum” “Alcohol on Breath,” etc.Are practical professionals, spend time on “fixable problems”Frequently believe alcohol dependence isn’t treatable, leading to professional denial
9 Why Are Alcohol Use Disorders Underdiagnosed ≈ 50% time? Patients with AUD typically:minimize or deny strongly problem usedeny physical and psychological problems could be related to drinkingrationalize work and interpersonal problems as cause of use, not resultPresent with emotional complaints (anxiety, mood disturbance) without linking them to alcohol use.Significant others/family/friends in best position to report problems with alcohol but not present at screening or evaluationAdapted from Waldinger RJ: Substance-Related Disorders and Eating Disorders, in Psychiatry for Medical Students. 3rd Ed. American Psychiatric Press, Inc. Washington DC, 1997.
10 Screening in the Criminal Justice System In 2002, Criminal justice/DWI referrals accounted for 40% of alcoholism treatment admissions to alone, and 34% of admissions to alcohol and other drugs treatment programs (SAMHSA 2004).Court-ordered screening misses many people with AUD and other disordersIn N=1,078 convicted offenders, later voluntary screening reported proportionally more alcohol abuse or alcohol dependence compared to the court-ordered initial screening for alcohol problems (Lapham et al. 2004).Lapham, S.C et al., Drug and Alcohol Dependence 76:135–141, 2004
11 Screening in the Criminal Justice System Limitations of screening procedures in the criminal justice system include:No screening instruments are available that have proven validity to assess both AOD use and the range of mental health problems found in criminal justice populations.Lack of screening instruments validated specifically for criminal justice offenders.Most current screening instruments rely on self report.Court-ordered screening is by definition coercive.Screening and treatment programs have limited financial resources; costs may be passed on to people being screened or treated who may be unable to pay.Lapham, S.C et al., Drug and Alcohol Dependence 76:135–141, 2004
12 When to Implement Screening A planned, purposeful and usually brief process that should occur soon after the offender enters the system.Offenders screened at various stages of the judicial process, including at arrest or arraignment, at pretrial investigation, during interactions with court staff, or as a post-sentence action.Screening and interventions with offenders who have AUD will probably be more effective if initiated soon after the offense, (laws are most likely to deter illegal behavior (e.g., DWI) if perceived to result in swift, certain, and severe sanctions (e.g., Morral et al. 2002).National Commission on Correctional Health Care:Comprehensive health assessment (including substance abuse history) within 7 days of arrival in prison, 14 days of arrival in jailMorral, A.R et al. Drug and Alcohol Dependence 66(Suppl.):S124–S125, 2002.
13 Screening and Assessment in Correctional Settings Substance Use history: patterns of use, treatment, acute symptoms, need for detoxCriminal historyPersonality traits related to criminalityMental health issues, including suicide potential, acute symptoms, treatment history, psychiatric medicationsAbuse and trauma history, as victim/perpHigh-risk behaviorsMotivation for treatmentEducation and literacyPhysical disabilitiesRelationships with significant others, family, dependentsPhysical health, acute conditions, infectious diseases including STD’s, HIV/AIDS, TB, and hepatitis
14 Screening for AUD Screening: determines the likelihood of alcohol use disorderestablishes the need for an in-depth assessment.Begin at the earliest point of clinical contact with the offender and continue throughout treatment, if providedSeveral screening tools can help determine the likelihood of the presence of problem alcohol use.CAGE 4-item self report , scores 0-4, 2+ answers flag high riskMAST 21-item self report, scores > 6 probable alcohol dependenceAUDIT 10 item self report, score > 8 in men, probable AUD> 4 in woman, probable AUD
15 Screening for AUD CAGE – 4 Items < 1 minute to administer ≥ 2 “yes” answers = high risk for AUDHigh sensitivity for AUD (60-95%)No questions about frequency of useNo quantity of consumption questionsNo frequency of heavy drinking questionsBecause consequence-focused, won’t flag early problem drinkers
16 Screening for AUD MAST – 25 Items ≥ 7 Probable Alcohol Dependence 5-6 Borderline Alcoholism≤ 4 No problem drinkingHigh Sensitivity for AUD (86-98%)Questions elicit lifetime history rather than current drinking behavior (Magruder-Habib et al., 1991)
17 Screening for AUD AUDIT – 10 Items, assesses over past year WHO Collaborative effortMulticultural (Babor & Grant, 1989)Designed to screen earlier-level problems in primary-care settingsSensitivity – 92%, Specificity – 93%Three Domains: amount & frequency; alcohol dependence; alcohol-induced problemsCutoff score of 8 of 40 = probable AUD
18 Simple Screening for AUD Ask the screening question about heavy drinking days: How many times in the past year have you had 5 or more drinks in a day? (for men)4 or more drinks in a day? (for women)One standard drink is equivalent to 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof spirits —1 or more heavy drinking days, orAUDIT score of ≥ 8 for men or ≥ 4 for womenIf endorsed, then a clinical evaluation
19 Clinician’s Initial Evaluation Document current and past use of alcohol and each other substance separately – pattern?, who with?Log prior quit attempts & treatmentsMedications: how used? how long ?Psychosocial treatment?Assess current motivation to quit (pros & cons; quit date)Assess triggers, withdrawal, and dependenceAssess social support
20 SAMHSA HOUSEHOLD SURVEY, 2004 Total USPopulationOver 12 Years(~237 M)CurrentAlcohol Users:50.3% (~121 M people)BingeDrinkers: 22.8 %(55 M)NESARCAny AUD17.6 M (8.46 %)HeavyDrinkers:6.9% (~16.7M)(NSDUH, 2005)
21 Hazardous Drinking A “standard drink” contains about 14 g alcohol At-Risk or Heavy Drinking is defined as:Men: >14 drinks/week or >4 drinks/occasionWomen: >7 drinks/week or >3 drinks/ occasionHazardous alcohol consumption = g alcoholGood predictor of alcohol-related problemsNegative Impact on chronic medical illnessSignificant increased morbidity and mortalityMcGinnis JM, Foege WH. JAMA. 1993; 270(18):2207– NIAAA (2004) Helping Patients With Alcohol Problems. DHHS, Wash., DC.
22 DSM -IV Substance Abuse Substance use leading to clinically significant impairment manifested by one (or more):Failure to fulfill major role obligationsHazardous situationsLegal problemsContinued substance use despite having persistent or recurrent social or interpersonal problemsNever met the criteria for substance dependence
23 Addiction: Classical and Contemporary Constructs Classical (Peele 1985):CravingIncreased tolerancePhysiologic withdrawalContemporary: Behavioral DysregulationCompulsive behavior despite negative consequences, i.e., loss of controlSalience – primacy in a person’s lifeCognitive – dominates mental lifeBehavioral – dominates activityFunctional Impairment
24 DSM -IV Substance Dependence Three (or more) of the following over 12 Months:ToleranceWithdrawalLarger amounts or over longer period than intendedPersistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut downMuch time spent in acquiring, using, or recovering from effectsAbandonment/reduction of important social, work, or recreational activitiesContinued use despite knowledge of having an alcohol-induced or exacerbated physical or mental problemLoss of ControlSalienceFunctional Impairment
25 Targeting Heavy Drinking Proxy for ImpairmentImpact of Heavy DrinkingDifferences in NESARC diagnoses rates and rates of binge and heavy drinking
26 2000 National Household Surveys on Drug Abuse (NHSDA) Highest rates binge, heavy drinking young adults aged 21 to 25Peak rate 65 % at age 21 (45 % binge drinking, 17 % heavy drinking)Binge and heavy alcohol use rates decrease faster with age than rates of past month alcohol use
27 Impact of Heavy Drinking About 25% have alcohol dependenceIncreased risk:gastrointestinal bleeding, sleep disorders, major depression, hemorrhagic stroke,cirrhosis of the liver, and several cancersRehm J Addiction. 2003;98(9):NIAAA (2004) Helping Patients With Alcohol Problems. DHHS, Wash., DC.
28 Hazardous Drinking Defined as AUDIT scores: 8+ (Babor et al., 2001) Sample Patient:drank 2 – 3 times a week (3 points)drank 2 drinks/day typically (1 point)had 6 drinks on one occasion at least monthly (2 points)“had a relative or friend, a doctor or other health worker” say that they have “been concerned about your drinking or suggested you cut down” in past year (4 points)Total score = 10.Mertens, JR et al., Alc Clin Exp Res. 2005;29(6):

Ann Int. Med. 2004;140:
35 Screening as a Brief Intervention In various medical settings, brief interventions are recommended for patients who misuse alcohol and are at risk for dependence, but who are not alcohol dependent.These interventions typically:Involve four or fewer sessionsAre not conducted in a specialized alcoholism treatment facility, andAre performed by health care providers and others who are not specialized in addiction treatment.

41 MotivationaI Interviewing Definition: Motivational Interviewing isa client-centered, directive methodfor enhancing intrinsic motivation to changeby exploring and resolving ambivalence,typically in a particular direction of change.Miller R, Rollnick S. Motivational Interviewing: Preparing People for Change, New York: Guilford, 2002
42 Stages of Change Model Precontemplation Contemplation Preparation ActionMaintenanceProchaska, J.O.; DiClemente, C.C. & Norcross, J.C. Am Psychol 47(9): , 1992.
43 Stages of Change ModelPrecontemplation- Overestimates costs of change and underestimates benefits. No intention to take action due to:lack of informationnot understanding consequences of not changingdemoralization after repeated failuresNo inherent motivation (e.g. crawling to walking) – progress due to events, differential processingDevelopmental, e.g., hitting 39th birthday, taking stockEnvironmental: Beloved dog dies of lung cancerHeavy-smoking wife quits smokingHeavy-smoking husband buys new dog!Prochaska, J.O. in: Ries R. et al. Eds, Principles of Addiction Medicine, 4th Ed.Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2009, pp
44 Stages of Change ModelContemplation– More aware of the benefits of change, acutely aware of the costsCan present as profound ambivalenceClient can entertain the reality of a problemPreparation– Decisional balance has tipped in favor of change, which is being planned for in next 30 daysPlan of action: go to AA, talk to physician, buy a self-help book, etc.Action– Client makes specific, overt changes in lifestyleOnly modifications of behavior that results in reduction of disease risk is deemed effective actionMaintenance– Working to prevent relapseProchaska, J.O. in: Ries R. et al.

46 Principles of Motivational Interviewing MI differs from traditional counseling in that it is client-centered:Collaborates rather than confrontsEvocates rather than educatesRespects autonomy rather than imposing authorityNot focused on:teaching new coping skillsreshaping cognitionsexploring the pastA way of being with rather than to do something toElicits intrinsic motivation rather than using extrinsic ones (coercion such as legal sanction, punishment, social pressure, or reward such as financial gain).Negative contingency frequently doesn’t work (as you well know).Miller R, Rollnick S. Motivational Interviewing: Preparing People for Change, New York: Guilford, 2002
47 Clinical Assessment/Intervention Integrate Motivational Interviewing into the clinical assessment interview for treatment seeking clients:understand the motives clients have for addressing their substance use problemsgather the clinical and administrative information needed to plan their carebuild and strengthen their readiness for changeMartino, S. et al. (2006) Motivational Interviewing Assessment: Supervisory Tools for Enhancing Proficiency.Salem, OR: Northwest Frontier Addiction Technology Transfer Center, Oregon Health and Science University.
48 Motivational Interviewing Identifying substance-related losses important for motivating people with comorbid psychiatric disorders contemplating behavior change (Blume & Marlatt, Addict Behav, 2000)Pilot data: one-session preadmission 45-60’ motivational interview more effective than standard preadmission interview - partial hospital program.

53 Relapse Pathways3 major biological mechanisms associated with relapse following extinction of drug-seeking behavior:Exposure to the drug1 (reward/extinction)Exposure to conditioned cues (ie, people, places, and things)2 (craving/dysphoria)Exposure to nonspecific stress3 (stress)1Monti et al. Addiction. 2000;95:S229.2McBride et al. Alcohol Clin Exp Res. 2002;26:280.3Koob. Addiction. 2000;95:S73.
54 Benefits of Psychotherapies Help patients to cope with 2 of 3 major factors in relapse:Reducing exposure to cues associated with use of substancesLearning healthy pleasures – changing rewardsAdopting refusal skillsAvoiding people, places and things associated with substance useReducing stressDecreasing negative emotional statesIncreasing resilience to stressors through support, remoralization, self-efficacy

56 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT: help patients recognize, avoid, and cope.RECOGNIZE situations in which they are most likely to use,AVOID these situations when appropriate,and COPE more effectively with a range of problems and problematic behaviors associated with substance abuse
57 CBT Addresses Critical Tasks Foster the motivation for abstinence.Decisional analysis which clarifies loss or gain with continued use.Teach coping skills.Recognize the high-risk situations in which they are most likely to useDevelop other, more effective means of coping with them.Rounsaville & Carroll, Ch 38., In: Lowinson, Ruiz, Millman, Langrod (Eds.) Substance Abuse A Comprehensive Textbook, 2nd Ed. 1992
58 CBT Critical Tasks (cont’d) Change reinforcement contingencies. Drug use excludes other experiences and rewards.Identify and reduce drug-associated habits by substituting positive activities + rewards. (Healthy pleasures)Foster management of painful affects.Techniques to recognize and cope with urges to use;Model for learning to tolerate other strong affectsRounsaville & Carroll, Ch 38., In: Lowinson, Ruiz, Millman, Langrod (Eds.)

61 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy The Evidence:Meta-analyses and extensive reviews of the literature have established that cognitive behavior approaches have strong empirical support for use in treatment of AUDMiller WR, Wilbourne PL. Addiction 2002; 97:265–277
62 Behavioral Couples Therapy Couple enters into a contract stipulating that:The partner observes and records on a calendar the patient taking the daily medication (disulfiram) dose,The patient and partner then thank each other for their effortsRefrain from arguments or discussions about the patient’s drinking behavior (O’Farrell and Bayog, 1986).
63 Behavioral Couples Therapy Meta-analysis of BCT studies demonstrate its superiority over individual interventions for alcohol and drug abuse at treatment follow-up on:frequency of use,consequences of use andrelationship satisfaction (Powers et al., 2008)Effects of BCT tend to fade over time as domestic partners tend to regress back towards dysfunctional relatingBooster relapse prevention sessions provided to couples after the main treatment had ended supported the maintenance of treatment gains (O’Farrell et al., 1993).

66 Alcoholics AnonymousMay be only treatment available in some correctional settingsIs synergistic with clinical approaches, best when offender is initially in a controlled environment, since it is an abstinence model

68 Twelve Step Facilitation Developed by Nowinski, Baker & Carroll (1992) for NIAAA’s Project MATCH as an approach which was:Manual guided, delivered on an Individual basisSharply contrasts with CBT and Motivational InterviewingAscribes to the AA/NA philosophy that relies heavily on a combination of spirituality and pragmatism, and advocates peer support as the primary means for achieving sustained sobrietyApproximated frequently used counseling methods that invoked 12 Step recoverySought to facilitate meaningful involvement in self help groups
69 Twelve Step Facilitation Intended to be implemented on an individual basis in 12 to 15 sessions and is based in behavioral, spiritual, and cognitive principles that form the core of 12-step fellowships such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)Based on principles of Alcoholics AnonymousTreatment goal is abstinenceEmphasis on first 3 Steps and fostering involvement in AACore topics include the assessment plus acceptance, surrender, and getting active; also elective sessionsNot equivalent to AA, NA referralNot equivalent to ‘treatment as usual’Has been adapted to a group format
70 Twelve Step Facilitation TSF does appear to facilitate self-help attendance/involvementTSF’s effectiveness appears to apply to a range of addiction problems, including methadone maintenanceIS NOT equivalent to ‘treatment as usual’Seasoned clinicians can learn and use TSFTSF has shown to substantially increase the likelihood that patients will become engaged with these AA resources.
71 Why Use Medications?Addiction is a chronic disease requiring long-term treatment, not different from hypertension or diabetesThese illnesses also have psychosocial interventions that improve outcomesMedication for addiction works best in the context of psychosocial treatmentEffect sizes for no one treatment is large
72 Why Use Medications?There are no “slam dunk” medications anymore than there are “slam dunk” psychosocial interventionsGetting the ball through the hoop is a team effort!Therefore, combinations of medical and psychosocial treatment optimizes outcomes

79 Mandated TreatmentCoerced or involuntary treatment comprises an integral, often positive component of treatment for addictive disorders, but raises numerous ethical, clinical, legal, political, cultural, and philosophical issues.Health care professionals should appreciate the indications, methods, advantages, and associated liabilities.Addiction Committee of the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry they searched the literature using Pubmed from 1985 to 2005Sullivan M et al., The American Journal on Addictions, 17: 36–47, 2008
80 Mandated TreatmentIntensive outpatient treatment has shown In therapy-resistant chronic alcoholics that monitored ingestion of disulfiram, as well as regular urine analysis for alcohol, yielded an abstinence rate of 60% at 6–26 months.In comparing methods of referral, groups with coerced referral to outpatient addiction treatment were more likely to complete treatment than those in the non-coercive referral groups.Coercive techniques can be effective and may be warranted in some circumstances: e.g. monitoring.Ehrenreich H, et al. Eur Arch Psychiatry Clin Neurosci. 1997;247:51–54.Loneck B, et al. Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse. 1996;22:233–246.
