This meta-analysis examined outcomes of smoking cessation interventions evaluated in 19 randomized controlled trials with individuals in current addictions treatment or recovery. [] Key Method Smoking and substance use outcomes at posttreatment and long-term follow-up (> or = 6 months) were summarized with random effects models. Intervention effects for smoking cessation were significant at posttreatment and comparable for participants in addictions treatment and recovery; however, intervention effects for…

A Systematic Review of Smoking Cessation Interventions for Adults in Substance Abuse Treatment or Recovery

NRT, behavioral support, and combination approaches appear to increase smoking abstinence in those treated for substance use disorders.

A randomized trial of concurrent smoking-cessation and substance use disorder treatment in stimulant-dependent smokers.

It is suggested that providing smoking-cessation treatment to illicit stimulant-dependent patients in outpatient substance use disorder treatment will not worsen, and may enhance, abstinence from nonnicotine substance use.

Intensive intervention for alcohol-dependent smokers in early recovery: a randomized trial.

Addressing heavy drinking in smoking cessation treatment: a randomized clinical trial.

The effect of ST-BI on smoking outcome was most robust among moderately heavy drinkers compared with that on very heavy drinkers and further development is needed to yield lasting effects on smoking.

Effects of Anxiety Sensitivity Reduction on Smoking Abstinence: An Analysis From a Panic Prevention Program

Evidence is provided for the efficacy of a novel, integrated anxiety and smoking cessation treatment to reduce AS and the meditation pathway from STAMP to early abstinence through reductions in AS suggest that AS is a clinically important mechanism of change forsmoking cessation treatment and research.

Smoking cessation treatment in community-based substance abuse rehabilitation programs.

Achieving Smoking Cessation Among Persons with Opioid Use Disorder

Targeting the unique challenges faced by smokers with OUD, including nicotine–opioid interactions and poor medication adherence, has potential to improve cessation outcomes, but further research is needed to optimize intervention efficacy.



Smoking Cessation in Outpatient Alcohol Treatment

There was a trend in the direction of greater alcohol use in the intervention group, but differences were not statistically significant at 6 and 12 months, and preliminary data suggest additional studies are needed to determine the effect of smoking cessation on alcohol abstinence.

Effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral therapy for smokers with histories of alcohol dependence and depression.

The results suggest that interventions focused on managing negative mood may benefit high-risk, comorbid smokers with a history of major depression.

Effect of smoking cessation counseling on recovery from alcoholism: findings from a randomized community intervention trial.

Couning alcoholics in treatment to quit smoking does not jeopardize the alcohol recovery process, however, low-intensity tobacco interventions are unlikely to yield high tobacco quit rates.

It is indicated that many dually diagnosed individuals are willing to attempt smoking cessation with appropriate pharmacotherapy and achieve reductions in CO measures, but only minimal success was observed with respect to cessation.

Predictors of tobacco quit attempts among recovering alcoholics.

Treating cigarette smoking in methadone maintenance clients.

It is indicated that the development of smoking-cessation programs for methadone clients merits further study and that such programs should stress relapse prevention techniques tailored to the specific needs of this population.

Smoking cessation treatment for substance misusers in early recovery: a review of the literature and recommendations for practice.

This paper will review recent developments in the treatment of nicotine dependence and discuss their applicability to nicotine-dependent persons who are in treatment for the misuse of alcohol or another drug.

A controlled smoking cessation trial for substance-dependent inpatients.

The results support the feasibility of smoking treatment for newly recovering drug and alcohol-dependent smokers in a residential rehabilitation program and provide information regarding appropriate treatment components.

Response to nicotine dependence treatment in smokers with current and past alcohol problems

In the short term, smokers with past or active alcohol problems are less likely to quit smoking compared to those with no alcohol problems when treated with nicotine patch therapy for smoking cessation.
