Inpatient Link to Addiction Recovery

2019-09-26 05:42:37 | BioPortfolio


The objective of this proposal is to link inpatients to a certified peer support specialist through FAVOR-Greenville and determine the effectiveness of recovery coaching on patient outcomes.This study will evaluate the impact of initiating peer recovery coaching during SUD patients' hospitalization on engagement in recovery services, addiction severity, hospital utilization, and quality of life compared to the current standard of care.


The United States is in the midst of a drug overdose crisis: the rate of substance use, overdose, and substance abuse-related economic costs is rapidly increasing. Despite the prevalence of Substance Abuse Disorder (SUD), only 10% of SUD patients receive treatment. The initial link into care is often one of the hardest barriers to overcome due to wait times, complex systems to navigate, and fluctuating motivation. Hospitalization is often a time when patients are more receptive to SUD treatment. One potential effective treatment approach is peer recovery support services. Currently at Greenville Memorial Hospital, there is no direct link between hospitalization and outpatient care for patients with SUD, making it difficult to start or continue the recovery process. Thus, the goal of this study is to evaluate the impact of the initiation of peer recovery services during hospitalization on addiction severity and quality of life. By establishing a successful inpatient link to recovery treatment, this study may lead to the development of an effective method of care that can readily be implemented into the healthcare system.
