ABSTRACT Objective: Substance use problems are common among people with schizophrenia, as are significant cognitive impairments. Because of potential shared neurobiological pathways, it is possible that cognitive remediation interventions may be associated with improvements in both substance use and cognition. This study examined the impact of cognitive remediation on alcohol and cannabis use and the cognitive correlates of changes in substance use among outpatients with schizophrenia. Methods… Expand
Neurocognitive Profiling of Adult Treatment Seekers Enrolled in a Clinical Trial of a Web-delivered Intervention for Substance Use Disorders
TLDR
These findings confirmed previous studies, indicating a high prevalence of significant cognitive dysfunction across all substance use categories among treatment-seeking adults, and found that cocaine use appears to be associated with the most impairment. Expand
Cognitive Enhancement to Improve Substance Abuse Outcomes in Persons With Co-Occurring Disorders

TLDR
Improvements in visual memory and problem solving predicted reduced alcohol and cannabis usage, which could be related to improved ability to recognize substancerelated cues that could trigger substance use and to develop effective solutions or plans to dealing with those situations. Expand
A systematic review of technology-based psychotherapeutic interventions for decreasing cannabis use in patients with psychosis
TLDR
Only eight articles were found showing that technology-based motivational and psycho-education interventions and cognitive enhancement therapy were minimally efficient in achieving cannabis abstinence or decreasing frequency of use. Expand
Cognitive rehabilitation in psychiatry
Cognitive impairments in mental disorders are common, poorly recognized, and largely unaddressed despite their significant impact on daily life functioning. Today, the treatment of psychiatricExpand
Psychosocial interventions for people with both severe mental illness and substance misuse.
TLDR
Assessment of the effects of psychosocial interventions for reduction in substance use in people with a serious mental illness compared with standard care found no clear differences between treatment groups for loss to treatment. Expand
Addiction, cognitive decline and therapy: seeking ways to escape a vicious cycle
TLDR
This review compares the cognitive profile that is frequently observed with chronic SUD with the skills that are required to initiate and sustain behavioral change during rehabilitation and proposes that the use of cognitive enhancing agents as adjuncts to behavioral therapy should help to overcome some of the cognitive barriers imposed by the disorder itself, and hence reduce the chance of relapse.

Neurocognition and social cognition training as treatments for violence and aggression in people with severe mental illness
TLDR
Together CCT and CSCT have been found to improve social cognition and neurocognition, as well as everyday functioning when combined with rehabilitation interventions, and these interventions have been shown to reduce violence in schizophrenia patients across multiple environments, including forensic settings. Expand
Randomized controlled trial of cognitive-motivational therapy program (PIPE) for the initial phase of schizophrenia: Maintenance of efficacy at 5-year follow up✰
TLDR
The present study offers scientific evidence for cognitive-motivational therapy's effectiveness as a treatment for clinical symptoms in the early stages of psychosis and suggests PIPE intervention may contribute to long-term clinical improvement and stability. Expand
Trauma, Technology, and Routine Outcome Measures
TLDR
This issue of the Journal highlights four issues: trauma, technology, routine outcome measurement, and cognitive remediation, which addresses co-occurring posttraumatic symptoms and substance use. Expand

Cognitive Enhancement Therapy in substance misusing schizophrenia: Results of an 18-month feasibility trial
TLDR
Results suggest that once engaged and stabilized, CET is a feasible and potentially effective treatment for cognitive impairments in patients with schizophrenia who misuse alcohol and/or cannabis. Expand
Cognitive enhancement therapy for schizophrenia: effects of a 2-year randomized trial on cognition and behavior.
TLDR
Many cognitive deficits and related behaviors of patients with stable schizophrenia are improved when sufficient exposure to relevant rehabilitation is provided, suggesting that supportive psychotherapy can also have positive, although more modest, effects on cognitive deficits. Expand

Integrated motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural therapy for people with psychosis and comorbid substance misuse: randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Integrated motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural therapy for people with psychosis and substance misuse do not improve outcome in terms of hospitalisation, symptom outcomes, or functioning, but this approach does reduce the amount of substance used for at least one year after completion of therapy. Expand
A Role for Cognitive Rehabilitation in Increasing the Effectiveness of Treatment for Alcohol Use Disorders
TLDR
Current evidence for indirect and moderating relationships of cognitive impairment to treatment outcome is summarized, and how advances in conceptual frameworks of brain-behavior relationships are fueling the development of novel AUD interventions that include techniques for cognitive remediation is discussed. Expand
Psychosocial interventions for people with both severe mental illness and substance misuse.
TLDR
There was no consistent evidence to support any one psychosocial treatment over another and more quality trials are required that adhere to proper randomization methods; use clinically valuable, reliable, and validated measurement scales; and clearly report data, including retention in treatment, relapse, and abstinence rates. Expand
A meta-analytic review of psychosocial interventions for substance use disorders.
TLDR
Overall, controlled trial data suggest that psychosocial treatments provide benefits reflecting a moderate effect size according to Cohen's standards, and these effect sizes are comparable to those for other efficacious treatments in psychiatry. Expand
Comorbid substance abuse in first-episode schizophrenia: Effects on cognition and psychopathology in the EUFEST study
TLDR
A correlation between longer duration of cannabis use and higher cognitive performance as well as reduced symptom improvement and more extrapyramidal motor symptoms in patients with higher frequency of cannabis consumption is found. Expand

TLDR
No positive effects of cannabis on cognitive function were observed, and drug use was not associated with improved neurocognition across most of the subgroup characteristics explored in this sample of schizophrenia patients. Expand

TLDR
The BTSAS program was significantly more effective than STAR in percentage of clean urine test results, survival in treatment, and attendance at sessions, and had significant effects on important community-functioning variables, including hospitalization; money available for living expenses; and quality of life.
