A Meta-Analysis of the Efficacy of Case Management for Substance Use Disorders-A Recovery Perspective

About the Course:

Case management is a client-centered approach to improve the coordination and continuity of service delivery, especially for persons with substance use disorders (SUD) and multiple and complex support needs. This intervention supports individuals by helping them identify needed services, facilitate linkage with services, and promote participation and retention in services. However, it is questionable whether case management is equally effective in promoting recovery and aspects of personal functioning. This article conducted an updated meta-analysis to assess whether case management was more effective than treatment as usual (TAU) among persons with SUD for improving treatment-related as well as personal functioning outcomes (e.g., substance use).

This course is based on the article, A Meta-Analysis of the Efficacy of Case Management for Substance Use Disorders-A Recovery Perspectiver created by Wouter Vanderplasschen, PhD., et al. in 2019.
