Evaluating Treatment & Self-help Methods of Improving Functioning & Quality of Life Outcomes of Patients with Substance Abuse Disorders
Keith N. Humphreys PhD MA
VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Palo Alto, CA
Palo Alto, CA
Funding Period: July 2004 - June 2024

BACKGROUND/RATIONALE:
Dr. Humphreys' research focuses on the evaluation of interventions and policies affecting individuals with substance use disorders. This work comprises studies of professionally-delivered treatments, self-administered interventions (e.g., Internet-based brief interventions for problem drinking), and peer-led self-help groups (e.g., Alcoholics Anonymous). A consistent theme in all this work is the use of science to guide front line practice and higher level health system organization, including researching the implications of the differences between individuals who seek care versus those who participate in treatment research studies, and, examination of evidenced-informed public policies that can reduce addiction and the damage it causes at the population level.

OBJECTIVE(S):
The objectives of Dr. Humphreys' work are to conduct high quality health services research related to substance use disorders, to mentor early career investigators, and to contribute to better policies and practices concerning addiction in the VA and in other health care systems as well.

METHODS:
The methods employed vary depending on the study Dr. Humphreys is conducting. His research on self-administered Internet-based interventions are randomized clinical trials. His research on peer-led self-help programs tends to be naturalistic, prospective longitudinal studies. His studies of the representativeness of treatment research samples are archival studies of prior research and simulation studies using secondary data analysis.

FINDINGS/RESULTS:
Not yet available.

IMPACT:
Dr. Humphreys' research on treatment and substance use was widely cited by other scientists, and has been acknowledged as an influence on substance use related legislation on the floor of the UK House of Lords and the West Virginia Senate. Dr. Humphreys' work leading the re-design of VA's national system of substance use disorder care after the commencement of military action in Iraq and Afghanistan continues to shape the system and continues to be used by VA care planners nationally. Dr. Humphreys is also making a national contribution to the care of people with substance use disorders through his work with the U.S. Surgeon General and internationally through his work with the World Health Organization.
