3 Page 3 of 5 8 Definitions Addiction refers to a maladaptive pattern of substance use or problem gambling that leads to a clinically significant impairment or distress. Substance use disorders and pathological gambling disorder are characterised by dyscontrol, [increased] tolerance, withdrawal, and salience [conspicuous behaviour], and they are considered chronic relapsing conditions (Let s get real, Glossary, p. 25). Maladaptive in the context of this definition refers to any pattern of substance use or problem gambling that is unconstructive or disruptive, and which does not assist or promote the ability of a person to adjust the addictive behaviour which he or she is exhibiting. Addiction service user in the context of this unit standard refers to a person accessing services in a mental health or addiction setting. Service users may also be known as consumers, clients, patients, tūroro, or tangata whai ora in particular contexts and settings. Brief interventions are short, one-on-one counselling sessions that are aimed at a person who has not openly reported an addiction issue, rather than an individual who has actively sought help for an addiction issue. They aim to identify an actual or potential problem and motivate the person to do something about it. Candidate refers to the person seeking credit for this unit standard. Organisation s policies and procedures are the policies and procedures of the employing organisation of the candidate and include ethical codes, standards, and other organisational requirements. Self-reporting screening tool(s) include but are not limited to the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT adult), and the Substances and Choices Scale (SACS youth). Outcomes and evidence requirements Outcome 1 Describe self-reporting screening tools. evidence is required for one self-reporting screening tool that is ageappropriate for adult addiction service users, and one self-reporting screening tool that is age-appropriate for youth addiction service users. 1.1 Self-reporting screening tools are described in terms of their utility to elicit data to support the addiction service user in accordance with the references. Outcome 2 Support addiction service users to use a self-reporting screening tool. evidence is required of support for one adult addiction service user and one youth addiction service user.

4 Page 4 of Addiction service users are supported to use a self-reporting screening tool that is approved by the candidate s organisation. support includes supplying self-reporting screening tool to service user, explaining instructions, answering questions within scope of practice, providing referral mechanism(s). Outcome 3 Support addiction service users with brief interventions. support includes explaining purpose of brief intervention to service user, explaining desired outcomes, answering questions within scope of practice, providing referral mechanism(s), administering brief intervention; evidence is required of support for two addiction service users. 3.1 Support for addiction service users with brief interventions is focused on identifying actual or potential addiction issues and motivating addiction service users to take action on these issues. 3.2 Brief interventions are used to identify possible future forms of action for addiction service users. possible future forms of action may include but are not limited to motivational interviewing, referral. 3.3 Support is carried out within the boundaries of the candidates role and in accordance with the organisation s policies and procedures.
