Title: Family Motivational Intervention (FMI).
Summary: For cannabis using patients with recent onset of schizophrenia, early intensive interventions are not working due to non-compliance and little insight of clients into their illness. Family Motivational Intervention was specifically developed for this target group. The intervention has an inpatient treatment phase (2 months) and a subsequent outpatient treatment (12 months). Target outcomes are: reduction of cannabis use; increasing medication compliance; increasing well-being among parents; decreasing stress within the family related to the schizophrenic disorder; and improving the communication between parent and child. In a randomized controlled trial, 98 carers of 75 patients with schizophrenia and co morbid cannabis use were assigned to either Family Motivational Intervention (FMI) or psychoeducation (PE). Baseline and follow-up measures by the patients and their caretakers were done by a researcher who was blinded for the allocated condition. The first follow-up measurements (3 months after the last session of FMI) show promising outcomes. The response was 94% in the FMI group and 78% in the PE group. For the patients, the response was 71% in the FMI group and 77% of the PE group. Compared with the PE group, the FMI group showed significant more decrease in mean days of cannabis use and in mean grams of cannabis use, both during the last three months. The groups did not differ significantly in the increase in compliance with medication. In both groups, carers (family members) significantly improved on all outcomes (burden of disease, style of coping and mental health). >>
