Telephone Continuing Care James R. McKay, Ph.D. Center on the Continuum of Care in the Addictions Department of Psychiatry University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia VA CESATE MD Office of Education and Training for Addiction Services 7.27.11 Topics to be Covered in the Presentation What does research tell us about effective continuing care? Potential role of the telephone in continuing care

Initial evaluation of a telephone continuing care protocol Was it effective? How did it work? Whom is it contraindicated for? Topics, continued Development of current telephone continuing care intervention Components Evaluation with alcohol dependent patients Ongoing work with cocaine dependent patients Methods to increase engagement and retention

Preliminary outcomes New project Final Conclusions Factors that Confer Extended Vulnerability to Relapse Biological Neurocognitive factors Genetic factors Behavioral Poor coping/life skills Interpersonal problems

Environmental Poor social support for recovery High risk neighborhoods Co-occurring disorders Depression PTSD Evidence on Extended Treatment In review of continuing care literature (McKay, 2009), factors associated with significant effects were: Planned TX durations of > 12 months

More active efforts to deliver TX to patients More recent studies! Challenge.. Finding a way to deliver extended treatments that are: Effective Economical Feasible/practical Advantages of the Telephone Potential to promote better long-term engagement and participation because: Convenient for client

Individualized attention Reduces stigma of weekly trips to the treatment program Evidence Supporting Therapeutic Use of the Telephone Studies suggest the telephone can be effective in delivering treatment:

Most were MA-level, with at least some

experience in addictions counseling Ability to engage patient, listen closely, be lively, and set limits is important All sessions are audio-taped, which is used for supervision and rating of adherence Methods Follow-ups at 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24 months Follow-up rate over 80% out to 15 months, 79% out to 24 months Outcomes obtained with: TLFB Collateral reports

McKay et al. (in press). Addiction Participants with Poor Social Support TMC>TAU, p= .02 Participants with Prior AOD Treatments Extended Telephone-Based Protocol for the Management of Cocaine Dependence Design

Patients: Cocaine dependent IOP participants still attending in week 2 (N=322) Treatment conditions: Treatment as usual (TAU) TAU plus telephone counseling for 24 mo. (TMC) TAU plus telephone counseling (24 mo.), plus incentives for participation and cocaine-free urines (first 12 mo) (TMC Plus) Outcomes assessed over 24 months Screening and Recruitment Changes to inclusion/exclusion criteria Lifetime cocaine dependence, with some use in

last 6 months (current dx not required) Have completed 2 vs. 4 weeks of IOP treatment Less stringent requirements for ongoing psychiatric follow-up of effected patients Result: much higher ratio of enrolled / screened than in prior study Changes to Clinical Protocol Lengthened face-to-face orientation to 2 sessions Added HIV risk reduction component to orientation Provided patients with choice of doing sessions over the telephone or in person Greater focus on helping patient stay engaged in IOP,

while in that phase of care Modified risk assessment More conversational in format Simpler rules for step up/down Lateral as well as vertical adaptations Clearer directions for case management activities Incentives in TMAC-Plus Patients receive $10 gift coupon (Target, Walmart, local

grocery store chain) for each completed clinical contact One $10 bonus gift coupon provided for every 3 consecutive contacts completed Additional $10 gift coupon for cocaine free urine provided during an in-person stepped care session (e.g., MI or CBT) Incentives provided only in year 1 of protocol Participants have to come to our research site to receive gift coupons (University rules) Impact of Incentives on Telephone Continuing Care Participation Percent Attending Orientation Received Incentives

Percent Possible Calls Completed Received Incentives Cocaine Use Outcomes Participants who became cocaine abstinent in first weeks of IOP Participants who continued to use cocaine in first weeks of IOP Participants who became alcohol abstinent in first

weeks of IOP Participants who continued to use alcohol in first weeks of IOP New Continuing Care Grant RC1 Challenge grant to test an enhanced version of telephone continuing care

Patients begin at intake Incentives are provided for completed contacts Cell phones provided if needed Patient choice around form of service delivery More aggressive linkage to social and recovery supports Greater emphasis on development of recovery capital Much more aggressive outreach when patients disappear Conclusions Conclusions In IOP graduates, telephone continuing care is at

least as effective as standard group counseling and individualized relapse prevention for patients with alcohol and/or cocaine dependence. Telephone continuing care appears to work in IOP graduates by increasing participation in self-help, and increasing self-efficacy and commitment to abstinence Patients who make poor progress while in IOP may require more intensive continuing care before being put on the telephone Conclusions, cont. The addition of extended, telephone-based continuing care to longer IOPs appears to improve

outcomes for patients with alcohol dependence In alcohol patients, adding counseling to calls produces stronger effects than monitoring/ feedback alone, relative to standard care Most effective disease management in patients with poor social support, low motivation, prior treatments Conclusions, cont. In cocaine patients, adding incentives to TMC dramatically increases participation rates Cocaine patients who were still using cocaine or alcohol immediately before IOP or in the first few weeks of IOP benefited to a greater degree from

extended telephone continuing care than those who had stopped cocaine and alcohol use. Not clear that higher participation rates in patients who received incentives translates into better drug use outcomes. Limitations and Caveats Access to the telephone can vary considerably Without incentives, rates of extended participation may be low. However, the intervention is still effective Acknowledgements Funding from NIDA
