Stimulant Abuser Groups to Engage in 12-Step (STAGE-12): Evaluation of a Combined Individual-Group Intervention to Reduce Stimulant and Other Drug Use by Increasing 12-Step Involvement
To evaluate the degree to which a combined group and individual 12-Step facilitative intervention, Stimulant Abuser Groups to Engage in 12-Step (STAGE-12), improves substance-related outcomes compared to treatment as usual (TAU) without STAGE-12 among stimulant abusers.
Feb 06, 2012
This was a randomized, controlled clinical trial in which 471 stimulant abusers were recruited from 10 sites to participate in study comparing 12-Step (STAGE-12) plus treatment as usual (TAU) to TAU alone. The purpose of this study was to evaluate reduction in percent of days of stimulant use as measured by self-report. The study also evaluated reduction in percent days of use of other substances, the degree to which STAGE-12 increased involvement in 12-step activities and attendance at 12-step meetings, and the extent to which such 12-step involvement and meeting attendance mediated substance use outcomes.
