The Alcohol Concern Smart Recovery Pilot Project final evaluation report
Macgregor S, Herring R.
Middlesex University, 2010.
Austerity plus recovery plus curtailed treat equals more mutual aid is the formula for ways out of dependence in the post-credit crunch 2010s. But with only 12-step groups, the offer is limited. What will it take for a cognitive-behavioural alternative to flourish in England was the question for this pilot project.
Gjestad R., Franck J., Lindberg S. et al.
Alcohol and Alcoholism: 2011, 46(2), p. 170–176.
Compared to usual treatment, over the next 27 years introduction of a comprehensively serviced female-only alcohol treatment unit in Sweden substantially extended the lives of its patients – a uniquely convincing demonstration that improving treatment can save lives.
Zlotnick C., Johnson J., Najavits L.M.
Behavior Therapy: 2009, 40, p. 325–336.
Seeking Safety is a prominent therapy for the common combination of substance dependence and post-traumatic stress disorder, yet in this study of imprisoned women in the USA it did not significantly augment outcomes from the prison's own substance use treatment. Asking 'Why not?' generates interesting explanations.
Children and Youth Services Review: 2010, 32, p. 423–429.
In Norway, long-term continuity of care by the same adults in a family-like setting outside the home (a specially funded foster home or residential centre) was the key to a better later life for severely troubled young teenage substance users.
Hustad J.T.P., Barnett N.P, Borsari B. et al.
Addictive Behaviors: 2010, 35, p. 183–189.
Study at a US college which required new students to complete a short web-based alcohol education/prevention programme shows that such programmes really can start students off on a healthier drinking trajectory.
STUDY 2010 HTM file
The effects of Project ALERT one year past curriculum completion
Ringwalt C.L., Clark H.K., Hanley S. et al.
Prevention Science: 2010, 11(2), p. 172–184.
This real-world test of a prevention programme conducted by an independent researcher rather than the developer failed to replicate earlier positive results – in this case, in respect of Project ALERT, one of the two most widely implemented and respected US middle school drug prevention curricula.
Clark H.K., Ringwalt L., Hanley S. et al.
Addictive Behaviors: 2010, 35, p. 209–217.
In what is becoming a pattern, this rigorous, real-world test of a prevention programme conducted by an independent researcher rather than the developer failed to replicate earlier positive results – in this case, in respect of an education/counselling programme for US teenagers diverted from mainstream schooling.
Osilla K.C., dela Cruz E., Miles J.N.V. et al.
Addictive Behaviors: 2010, 35, p. 194–200.
When counsellors at US occupational health centres incorporated a brief intervention for at-risk drinkers among their caseloads, this low-cost adaptation to usual counselling provision led to increased productivity which saved employers $1200 per client.

Evidence-based psychotherapy relationships: Goal consensus and collaboration
Tryon G.S., Winograd G.
Psychotherapy: 2011, 48(1), p. 50–57.
This meta-analytic review commissioned by the American Psychological Association finds that outcomes improve the more clients and therapists agree on goals and methods and form collaborative working relationships to implement those agreements. The findings support deep patient involvement in deciding treatment goals and methods.
