About the Course:
This course is based on four NIDA Notes articles. NIDA Notes is a large collection of brief relevant articles focusing on current drug abuse treatment evidence.
Drug Abuse Treatment in Adolescents Should Address Co-Occurring Mental Health Problems relates that a NIDA-funded study has found adolescent substance abuse patients with co-occurring emotional and behavioral problems are more likely than peers without coexisting psychiatric conditions to relapse in the year following treatment.
Adults With Co-Occurring Depression and Substance Abuse Benefit From Treatment of Depression shows how new evidence is overturning the long-held view that patients with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders must achieve abstinence from drugs before treatment for depression can begin.
Economists Offer Program for Costing Out Drug Abuse Treatment explains how NIDA-supported economists are offering drug treatment program administrators a comprehensive program to estimate their costs. The Drug Abuse Treatment Cost Analysis Program (DATCAP) features materials and a method to capture and put dollar values on the full range of treatment resources.
CTN Update: Teamwork Develops Treatment Concept Into Study Protocol describes how in NIDA’s Clinical Trials Network (CTN), researchers and practitioners collaborate in the design as well as the execution of drug abuse treatment studies.
All four articles are contained in one PDF.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Drug Abuse Treatment Evidence: Collection V (NIDA Notes): Article 1: Drug Abuse Treatment in Adolescents Should Address Co-Occurring Mental Health Problems; Article 2: Adults With Co-Occurring Depression and Substance Abuse Benefit From Treatment of Depression; Article 3: Economists Offer Program for Costing Out Drug Abuse Treatment; Article 4: CTN Update: Teamwork Develops Treatment Concept Into Study Protocol created by Lori Whitten, Marion Torchia, and Barbara Shine
