While the use of illegal drugs like cocaine and heroin is falling, more people are using prescription drugs non-medically. The rate of prescription drug abuse in the United States is now second to marijuana, and the Obama administration calls the non-medical use of these drugs an epidemic.

Few studies have documented outcomes resulting from comprehensive evidence-based treatment services designed to address the unique clinical challenges associated with the treatment of prescription drug abuse.

Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) is a rehab industry leader in integrated treatment for addiction and mental health issues. Foundations Recovery Network conducts independent research in an effort to improve patient care. This work is not just compiled for FRN use, but to help improve treatment planning and effectiveness for all Dual Diagnosis patients as an effort to expand independently upon the ongoing research by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

After treatment completion, FRN asks each former patient to participate in a completely anonymous follow-up survey. This particular study followed patients for six months after they completed treatment over the years 2008-2010. By using the Addiction Severity Index (ASI) and extensive interviewing, FRN learned more about patient improvement after treatment.

Does a patient’s age affect addiction treatment outcomes? Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) studied former patients for one year post-treatment in order to measure lasting treatment outcomes.

Studies show that a patient’s readiness to change influences the outcome of addiction treatment. The University of Rhode Island Change Assessment (URICA) self-report is a test used to measure a patient’s readiness to change.

Studies show that more than 50% of patients who have been diagnosed with substance abuse disorders also suffer from a diagnosable mental illness. In recent years, the term “Dual Diagnosis” has been used to describe people who face the challenge of combined mental illness and addiction diagnoses.1

Traditionally, Dual Diagnosis patients were forced to choose between either traditional substance abuse treatment or mental health treatment. This single-approach treatment plan for Dual Diagnosis problems has been largely ineffective. Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) offers a unique, integrated treatment solution for patients who suffer from Dual Diagnosis.

Two measures of overall satisfaction are often presented in the literature: overall satisfaction (how satisfied were you with your overall experience), and recommendation (would you recommend this program to someone else?).
