This service updates you with developments at the DRUG AND ALCOHOL FINDINGS web site
http://findings.org.uk.

ISSUE 9 of the DRUG AND ALCOHOL FINDINGS magazine first published in 2003 is now available free of
charge as downloadable PDFs (Adobe Acrobat files). Access by clicking this link:
http://findings.org.uk/issuesResults.php5?issueChoice=issue+9
or the BROWSE MAGAZINE link on the home page.

This and subsequent messages will introduce you to more of the NUGGETS, each of which analyses an
important new 'what works' evaluation.

**************************************
NURSES CAN NOT JUST TREAT DRINK-RELATED INJURIES BUT HELP PREVENT THEM
This British study found that young men who had suffered facial injuries after heavy drinking
significantly cut back after brief motivational counselling in a hospital clinic specialising in
these types of injury. The fact that these clinics see many heavy drinkers makes such work
particularly worthwhile. Importantly, the clinic's own nurses were able to conduct the intervention.

**************************************
BRIEF COUNSELLING MAY BE ENOUGH FOR LESS SEVERELY AFFECTED PATIENTS
Usually brief interventions are reserved for people not actually seeking treatment for their
substance use (eg, see entry above) but this Australian study confirmed that relatively brief
counselling has a potential role as a first-line response for less severely affected
treatment-seeking drinkers.

**************************************
STARTING WITH A MOTIVATIONAL SESSION MAKES THE MOST OF TREATMENT
At a US outpatient alcohol service an initial motivational interview was more effective than 'role
induction' (informing the patient about the treatment) at encouraging new clients to stay longer and
to gain more from the treatment which followed.

**************************************
BINGE DRINKERS TOO HELPED TO CUT DOWN BY NALTREXONE
In Spain the medication naltrexone helped young regular binge drinkers cut back, potentially
extending its role from alcoholics seeking treatment at specialist clinics to problem drinkers
identified in other settings such as primary care.
