Substance Use Disorder Clinics

According to the 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 40.3 million Americans aged 12 or older had a substance use disorder (SUD) in the past year, up from 19.7 million in 2017. And almost half of these people also suffer from a mental illness. Moreover, according to the CDC, there were more than 100,000 overdose deaths in 2021. It is time we screen for and appropriately treat both SUD and the underlying mental illnesses that lead to addiction. The nView solution can help.

Substance use patient diagnosis and treatment

Identifying the Root Cause is Critical to Treatment

When it comes to battling substance use disorder, the question that should be asked of patients is “what are you trying to treat?” But often, substance misuse practitioners only treat the SUD because they lack the tools and resources to treat mental illness. nView offers a new way to effectively identify, diagnose, treat and monitor substance use disorder and the underlying mental health disorders that often cause people to self-medicate with drugs and/or alcohol.

Use One Tool to Assess for Multiple Disorders

A wide range of psychiatric conditions – including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – increase the risk of a SUD. With nView, substance misuse practitioners can rely on one solution built into their workflow to assess SUDs at the same time as the most common adult and pediatric DSM-5 conditions so they can get to the underlying conditions that may be causing the SUD.

Screen Efficiently with Proven Accuracy

With hundreds of thousands of assessments completed and an 89% accuracy rating that only the SCID-5 can match, the digital nView solution is proven to help providers make the right diagnosis the first time. For SUD practitioners, this gives peace of mind that they have a comprehensive picture of their patient so they can treat the whole person, not just the drug or alcohol dependence.

Get Patients to the Right Treatment

Because substance misuse practitioners often lack extensive training in mental health, they need guidance to get their patients to the right resources and ensure SUD treatment doesn’t worsen other conditions. The nView solution guides practitioners to the “next steps” for treatment based on presence and severity of symptoms to help patients with their SUD and mental illness if present.

How It Works

A Step-by-Step Guide from Assessment to Outcomes

1 Understand What is Truly Going on with the Patient

In just five minutes or less, SUD practitioners can quickly screen patients before an appointment, in the waiting room, or during an appointment depending on established workflows. Armed with answers to basic questions covering SUDs and multiple mental illnesses, practitioners can easily determine which patients need further evaluation for underlying mental health conditions.

2 Fill in the Gaps to Help Make a Diagnosis

nView structured interviews help practitioners gather more data on the presence and severity of the most common DSM-5 mental disorders including depression, anxiety, PTSD and ADHD in one place. With one tool, providers can address multiple disorders and make better diagnoses to create the right treatment plan.

3 Direct Patients to the Next Steps

Based on the patient’s interview results, the nView solution presents practitioners with suggested follow-up steps a patient can take as part of their treatment. Providers select which follow-up to enroll the patient in, and the system automatically sends the patient activities such as online cognitive behavioral therapy, self-paced education, and ongoing monitoring surveys.

4 Gather Data Over Time to Measure Outcomes

Monitoring patient progress is critical in determining the effectiveness of treatment and ensuring patients are getting better. With nView, SUD clinics can gather outcome data to make treatment adjustments. They can also use the data to demonstrate quality outcomes to prospective patients and evaluate the effectiveness of individual SUD practitioners.

Helping the Whole Person, Not Just Treating the SUD

For patients who have a substance use disorder to truly get better, identifying and treating the root cause is paramount. The nView solution makes it easy to diagnose mental illnesses that are contributing factors to a patient’s drug and alcohol use so treatment plans can be holistic.

  • Evidence-based measurements and scales fit within the SUD practitioner’s workflow.

  • Multi-dimensional screeners and assessments evaluate multiple mental illnesses to identify root causes of substance use.

  • Outcome and severity measurement tools help practitioners adjust treatments that aren’t working or continue those that are working.

  • Data collected at every step of the process provides the documentation needed to demonstrate verifiable patient outcomes.
