Title: Efficacy of a Smoking Cessation Programme in a Smoking Cessation Service
Summary: The programme can be provided as individual and group. The individual treatment programme consists of 10 consultations; the first is the baseline and the remaining 9 are the follow-up. The baseline consultation lasts between 30 and 40 min, and at the end patients choose Quit-date. During this visit, which is always given by an Specialist on Smoking Treatment, the clinical and smoking history is taken, and various tests are performed: measurement of CO in expired air, spirometry and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. The follow-up visits are held at 1st, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 10th and 12th weeks, then 4th, 6th and 12th months after quit-date, and are all independently conducted by Healthcare Professionals Specialist on Smoking Treatment. These consultations are to control withdrawal symptoms, provide cognitive behavioural treatment and prescribe drug therapy. Different tests are also performed, e.g. measurement of CO in expired air and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. Three times a week, the patients’ situation is considered in a clinical session held by all members of the Smoking Cessation Service, where each case is discussed and appropriate decisions are taken. The group treatment programme consists of 9 sessions. The first takes place a few days before quit-date and lasts approximately 80-90 min. During this session, the patients choose their quit-date and receive advice in preparing for it. They are then informed about the basics of withdrawal. In addition, various tests are performed: measurement of CO in expired air, spirometry and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. The remaining sessions are held at 1st, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 10th, and 12th weeks, then at 4th and 5th months after quit-date. These sessions help to control withdrawal and prescribe drug therapy, as well as explain the different cognitive behavioural techniques to patients.

Title: Help yourself and help us: Integration of self-help groups that belongs to the Federation of ex-alcoholics from Madrid into an alcoholism treatment program delivered in the Spanish Health Public System.
Summary: Integration of self-help groups that belongs to the Federation of ex-alcoholics from Madrid into a alcoholism treatment program delivered in the Spanish Health Public System (Project Help yourself and help us) Self-help groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Rehabilitated Alcoholics have shown its effectiveness in engaging alcoholic patients into treatment. However these techniques are not been usually included in the alcoholism treatment programs delivered in the Spanish Health public system. The Federation of ex-alcoholics in the Community of Madrid has a network of self-help centers spread throughout the Madrid’s region where alcohol-dependent patients and their families receive attention. Self-help groups delivered in this network aim to ensure that alcoholics and their relatives can learn basic skills for preventing alcohol relapses. The aim of this study was to demonstrate that the integration of these facilities as a component of a public alcoholism-treatment program could improve the outcome of alcoholic subjects and the psychological condition of their relatives. Methods: We selected patients and relatives who came to our treatment program at “Hospital 12 de Cctubre” in 2010 and were randomized into two groups: Group A (Standard program for patients and relatives delivered at our facility) and Group B (Experimental treatment program for patients and relatives delivered at an self-help center and standard program for patients delivered at our facility) . A total of 94 patients included in the group A received a standard relapse prevention program during 12 weeks. Theirs relatives (n=94) attended some interviews with the patient (3-6 visits during the treatment period) where a psychiatrist explained them several aspects of the alcohol dependence and were offered the opportunity to request assistance during the treatment period. In the other group (Group B, n = 94) patients were also included in a relapse prevention program but their relatives attended to family groups delivered at an self-help group center next to our facility (10 sessions). Results: After 12 weeks, alcoholics and their relatives included in group B achieved more improvements that participants treated in our standard program. Patients belonged to group B had fewer drinking days and less dropout rates during the treatment period that patients treated exclusively in our program. Conclusions: Our results support that psychological interventions delivered at self-help centers are useful in improving rates of efficacy and also psychological conditions of relatives of alcoholic patients who are treated at a public alcoholism program treatment. The integration of these centers within public alcoholism treatment programs could provide a new way to treat alcoholism, based on collaboration of public facilities and patient associations. >>
