Dunn, Chris PhD; Ostafin, Brian PhD

Collapse Box


Substance abuse is one of the most prevalent comorbid conditions among trauma patients. Research has shown that injury can be reduced when brief interventions are provided to trauma patients who are hospitalized for substance abuse. This article presents data from a Level I trauma center that provided brief interventions daily over a 5-year period. A generic model for brief intervention is described, along with concrete details of this addiction intervention service.
