Collaborative Advancement of Recovery Excellence

Translating science to service, powered by Gloo
Quality Improvement
A new site is launching in July with the aim of bringing more uniformity to the measurement of addiction treatment and helping patients find care with standardized information on the quality of facilities.
Recovery
Five years after the concept was developed, Conquer Addiction, an online resource that will list providers who publish their post-treatment outcomes data, is set for a June 30 launch.
Coronavirus
Gloo and the Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Learning Network have released a whitepaper on the impact of COVID-19 based on recent survey results.
Clinical Challenges
A study of national commercial insurance claims conducted found that 16.6% of patients obtained follow-up treatment after a non-fatal opioid overdose, with patients who were older, female, black or Hispanic less likely to receive follow-up care.
Management
At the National Conference on Addiction Disorders Virtual Experience, Deni Carise, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer at Recovery Centers of America, will discuss services delivery in the time of COVID-19, the intersection of data, outcomes and innovation, and the importance of quality benchmarks and outcomes measurement.
Therapies/Treatments
In a study of mice, a synthetic molecule was found to reduce cocaine and methamphetamine consumption and cravings without the side effects typically associated with other interventions, according to research published Thursday in the journal Cell.
Technology
Stay-at-home and social-distancing orders have changed how PRSS programs are supporting participants during their most vulnerable moments.
Drug Testing
Participants in a South Dakota alcohol-monitoring program that tests frequently for alcohol and swiftly imposes modest penalties for positive or missed tests were found to be less likely to be rearrested on drunk driving charges or have their probation revoked within the following year.
Coronavirus
Nearly half of behavioral health executives polled said they see the recovery and wellness of their clients declining in the context of COVID-19, according to the first Weekly Director Poll published by the Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Learning Network and Gloo.
Aftercare
A Johns Hopkins study has found that individuals in recovery who received a supplemental $8 per hour in their wages were more likely to provide drug-free urine samples and maintain steady employment.
