  • 10/08/2011 - Evaluation of a modified contingency management intervention for consistent attendance in therapeutic workplace participants
    In a therapeutic workplace business, drug abuse patients are hired as data entry operators and paid to perform data entry work contingent upon documented drug abstinence. Reliable attendance has been difficult to maintain despite the opportunity for operators to earn a living wage, 6 h per day, 5 days per week. A within-subject reversal design experiment evaluated a contingency management intervention that allowed for flexibility regarding when operators could arrive to work, yet maintained a contingency for reliable workplace attendance. Results from a within-subject reversal design experiment demonstrated the contingency management intervention to be effective in increasing the frequency of completed work shifts in four of five operators. Repeated measures ANOVA and Tukey’s post-hoc tests of grouped data showed that the contingency management intervention significantly (P < 0.05) increased the mean percent of days that operators completed work shifts (5% baseline; 63% contingency management; 7% baseline). This study demonstrates an effective procedure for maintaining attendance in therapeutic workplace participants.
  • 07/08/2011 - Treatment of substance use disorders
    Substance use disorders and their sequelae touch virtually all aspects of our everyday life. The American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, along with many other national, state and local institutions, is committed to seeking ways to turn this "intractable problem" of substance use disorders into one with answers and cures. This first book in the Academy's Key Readings in Addiction Psychiatry compendia aims to overcome the fatalistic view that substance abusers cannot be helped by providing a look at the most up-to-date reviews in treatment of substance abuse. Focusing on the readings on the "Big Four" - alcohol (and benzodiazepines), opiates, cocaine and nicotine, this volume is a grounding in the treatment of addiction that will leave the reader well-armed to explore treatment of the many other abused agents, including cannabis, amphetamines, barbiturates, and club drugs such as MDMA.
