Wirk project l.jpg
WIRK-Project Alcoholics

  • Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

  • Duration: Nov. 2001 – Oct. 2004

  • Realisation: IFT Institute of Therapy Research

    Munich; PI: Christoph Kröger


Target group l.jpg
Target Group Alcoholics

  • Alcohol addicted patients in residential treatment

    • in rehabilitation centres

    • after detoxification

    • duration of stay: 8 weeks to 4 months


Background l.jpg

It is not a question anymore if smoking cessation during alcohol dependence treatment should be offered. It is more a question of how its effectiveness could be improved.

Background

  • High prevalence rate of smokers in alcohol dependence treatment (80-95%)

  • High risk of smoking related diseases (Hurt et al., 1996)

  • Positive effects on alcohol abstinence (Bobo, 1989; Burling et al., 2001)

  • Optimal time period (window of opportunity)

  • Insurance companies demand smoking cessation


Aims of the study l.jpg
Aims of the Study alcohol dependence treatment should be offered. It is more a question of how its effectiveness could be improved.

  • Implementation or improvement of smoking cessation interventions in rehabilitation centres for patients with an alcohol addiction

  • Reaching a population with a high risk for health problems who are resistent to change their smoking behaviour

  • Evaluation of smoking cessation interventions (effectiveness)

  • Matching patients to interventions (Allocation)


Setting of smoking cessation interventions l.jpg
Setting of Smoking Cessation Interventions alcohol dependence treatment should be offered. It is more a question of how its effectiveness could be improved.

  • 1-2 staff members (medical doctors, alcohol therapists, psychologists) were trained to deliver both interventions

  • Voluntary participation

  • One information session

  • Six group sessions once or twice a week (60-90 minutes)

  • 6 to 8 group members


Topics of the sessions cbt l.jpg
Topics of the Sessions - CBT alcohol dependence treatment should be offered. It is more a question of how its effectiveness could be improved.

  • self observation of smoking behaviour (analysis of behaviour and situations; learning self control strategies)

  • changing smoking behaviour (reduction plan; preparation of the stop day; stop day)

  • stabilisation of non smoking (relapse prevention)


Slide8 l.jpg

Topics of the Sessions - MT alcohol dependence treatment should be offered. It is more a question of how its effectiveness could be improved.

  • Emotional involvment in the topic: Environmental reactions about smoking and quitting

  • Consciousness rising: Quiz about objective facts of smoking and smoking cessation; Feedback of personal smoking behaviour with results of FTND

  • Increase ambivalence: Collection of common reasons for and against quitting smoking; Individualized decisional balance

  • Support to change: Personal obstacles of not quitting; Realise the power of thoughts; Cognitive restructuring of negative thoughts about smoking cessation; Brain storming; Creative solutions

  • Preparing to change:Mountain climber as metaphor of a smoker who is on his way of quitting

Hypothesis l.jpg
Hypothesis alcohol dependence treatment should be offered. It is more a question of how its effectiveness could be improved.

H1: Cognitive-behavioural treatment (CBT) and motivational treatment (MT) have the same overall success rates


Data collection l.jpg
Data Collection alcohol dependence treatment should be offered. It is more a question of how its effectiveness could be improved.

  • Questionaire pre treatment (T0)

  • Questionaire post treatment (T1)

  • Follow-up after 3 months (T2)

  • Follow-up after 6 months (T3)

  • Follow-up after 12 months (T4)

     Outcome variable: smoking abstinence; 7 day prevalence: not smoking during the last 7 days; self reported data


Sample l.jpg

High interest of rehabilitation hospitals and patients in the interventions

Sample

  • 19 rehabilitation centres

  • 88 smoking cessation courses

    (CBT: n=47;MT: n=41)

  • 663 alcoholic smokers

    (CBT: n=363; MT: n=300)

  • N= 29 trained staff members

Interviews with staff members l.jpg

The specific tobacco policy of hospitals could influence the participation rate of smoking cessation interventions

Interviews with staff members

Smoking cessation (sc) is not effective when,

  • there is no adequate importance of sc in the hospital

    • therapist as lone fighter

    • hospital follows only health political pressure

  • there is no adequate support from staff

    • colleagues are smoking

    • lack of motivation of colleagues regarding sc

  • the therapist himself is unconvinced of the efficacy of sc

    • he is sceptical about the therapy success

    • he himself is a current smoker


Discussion l.jpg
Discussion participation rate of smoking cessation interventions

  • Very high interest of hospitals and patients

  • The MT is as effective as the CBT. Maybe the interventions are more equal than they look like.

  • The MT may be favoured as a larger target group can be reached. More alcohol addicted smokers may become engaged in reflecting their smoking behaviour.

  • Skills training ist part of alcohol treatment where self control, stress management, relapse prevention techniques are tought. A transfer of these techniques may help smokers to become tobacco abstinent.

  • Improving the outcome by improving the hospital tobacco policy


Recommendations west et al 2000 l.jpg
Recommendations participation rate of smoking cessation interventions (West et al., 2000)

In order to send out a consistent message to smoking patients a clear tobacco policy should be self-evident:

  • Implementation of efficient systems for recording the smoking status

  • Hospitals should be smoke-free and all patients should be advised of this at the earliest opportunity

  • Current smokers attending hospital should receive opportunistic advice from a clinician (MI)

  • Offering specialist support and NRT on prescription

  • Clinicans and other staff who are involved in discussing smoking with patients should receive adequate training for effective interventions
