Double Trouble in Recovery (DTR)

Certain limitations of traditional single focus mutual aid groups spurred the development of dual focus fellowships designed to address the needs of persons with both mental health and substance use problems. One of these dual focus mutual aid groups is Double Trouble in Recovery (DTR). Founded in 1989, DTR is a program adapted from the 12 Steps of AA, specifically designed to embrace the specialized needs of persons with co-occurring substance use and mental health problems. NDRI with support from NIDA (R01DA023119), has developed two eLearning modules to help mental health clinicians initiate and sustain dual focus mutual aid groups in their facility. DTR is registered on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP). More information on DTR can be found here: http://www.hazelden.org/web/go/dtr.

Medication Assisted Treatment Modules

Despite the high prevalence of opioid addiction among persons under criminal justice supervision there has been very limited penetration of medication assisted treatment (MAT; methadone, buprenorphine, and extended-release naltrexone); an intervention that has a very strong evidence base. To spur implementation of MAT, we propose a Stage I study to develop and assess the feasibility, acceptability, utility and sustainability of an interactive eLearning modality and an eLearning + an organizational approach (Technology Transfer [TT] model) to advance knowledge and facilitate inclusion of MAT in drug and felony courts. We expect this development/pilot project to lead to a protocol that will be tested in a larger-scale efficacy trial to implement evidenced-based therapy for opioid-addicted criminal justice clients.

This project has been made possible by funding from the
National Institutes of Health (NIDA R34DA038799)

Save a Life: Learn how to respond to an overdose emergency

Get Naloxone Now is an online resource to train people to respond effectively to an opioid-associated overdose emergency. Get Naloxone Now advocates for widespread access to overdose education and training in how to administer naloxone, the life-saving antidote for opioid-associated overdose. Get Naloxone Now seeks to increase the number of lives saved by bystanders and first responders (police officers, firefighters and EMTs). Find out how you can contribute to reducing overdose deaths by accessing our online training module.
