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. >>
