Mindful drinking: A clinical case study of non-abstinence AUD treatment

Abstract
The talk will address non-abstinence treatment options for alcohol use disorder (AUD) within an outpatient setting. General treatment modalities will be discussed along with monitoring and outcome measurement approaches. A clinical case presentation for a male patient (age=29) with severe AUD will be used in the presentation in order to provide examples of current application within an intensive-outpatient setting in Los Angeles, CA. Data obtained over the course of eight (8) months from daily mobile-breathalyzer readings and tailored mobile-assessments will be presented along with more extensive baseline and monthly assessment batteries. Baseline and monthly assessments were comprised of a range of psychological instruments such as the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-Depression), Barratt Impulsiveness Scale-(BIS Impulsivity), PANAS-X (Affect) and Rumination Responses Scale (RRS-Rumination) with intervals of the Addiction Severity Index (ASI) given at month one (1), three (3) and six (6). All results and analysis were completed using SPSS 20. Our analysis indicated significant decreases in depression, anxiety and negative affect as well as increase in positive affect and general health that continued to significantly improve even after the reintroduction and moderate use of alcohol. Implications for the future of structured non-abstinence treatments for AUD will be discussed and explored.
