This practice guide is designed to assist Tennessee professionals in understanding substance abuse, the use of best practices for individuals with substance use disorders, including co-occurring disorders, encourage innovative and improved practice in the field, enhance capacity that will result in stronger communities, and develop expertise around substance use issues. It begins by defining substance use disorders and Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-5 substance use disorders classifications. The following section addresses addiction, myths about drug abuse and addiction, the addiction cycle, the Chronic Disease Model, determining substance abuse, and substance abuse treatment. Information is then presented on prevention and early intervention, prevention principles, levels of prevention, preventative interventions, and screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment. The next section focuses on evidence-based treatments, including medication-assisted treatments and psychosocial treatments. Treatment resources are then considered, as well as co-occurring disorders. A section on special populations discusses substance abuse in women and pregnant women, fetuses and neonates, young people, and veterans. The final section explores substance abuse disorders in the criminal justice system, drug poisoning deaths, and recovery support services. Screening tools for substance abuse identification are then provided. Appendices offer information on caffeine use, e-cigarettes, the intersection of substance abuse and child welfare services, and substance abuse in sexual minority populations. Numerous references.
