Mediational Pathways Among Trait Impulsivity, Heroin-use Consequences, and Current Mood State.

Addict Res Theory 2018 31;26(5):421-429. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, USA.

Background: This study examined whether lifetime heroin-use consequences mediate the relationship between trait impulsivity and three current mood outcomes: depression symptoms, stress levels, and perception of life events.

Method: Regular heroin users ( = 163) were assessed using the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11) to measure trait impulsivity; a standardized Drug History and Use Questionnaire to measure lifetime adverse consequences of heroin use; Beck Depression Inventory II to measure current depression symptoms; Stress subscale of the Depression Anxiety Stress scale; and Hassles and Uplifts scale to measure perception of life events.

Results: BIS-11 Attentional and Motor impulsivity were positively related to number of adverse heroin-use consequences, depression symptoms, and stress level, and negatively associated with positive perception of events. Read More

Insomnia symptoms as a risk factor for cessation failure following smoking treatment.

Addict Res Theory 2017 29;25(1):17-23. Epub 2016 Jun 29.

Department of Psychology, Florida State University.

Insomnia symptoms are associated with smoking, and may interfere with smoking cessation. Specifically, studies have shown that smoking-related sleep problems are associated with long-term smoking relapse, and longer sleep duration is associated with successful smoking cessation. However, it is currently unclear whether pre- or post-quit insomnia symptoms are associated with smoking cessation outcomes. Read More

A preliminary investigation of the relationship between dispositional mindfulness and eating disorder symptoms among men in residential substance use treatment.

Addict Res Theory 2017 30;25(1):67-73. Epub 2016 Jun 30.

University of Tennessee, Knoxville (Department of Psychology, 1404 Circle Drive, 204 Austin Peay Building, Knoxville, TN 37996).

The comorbidity between eating disorders (EDs) and substance use disorders (SUDs) is of particular concern given the high rates of mortality, relapse and poor treatment outcomes associated with both disorders. As a result, there has been a growing impetus within the field to elucidate factors that might influence and aid treatment for this comorbidity. One such factor is dispositional mindfulness, as past literature has demonstrated a significant relationship between mindfulness and both EDs and SUDs. Read More

'Pickle or a cucumber?' administrator and practitioner views of successful adolescent recovery.

Addict Res Theory 2017 7;25(3):208-215. Epub 2016 Nov 7.

Vanderbilt University, Peabody College.

Introduction: Adolescent substance use disorders often involve a recurring cycle of treatment and relapse. The academic and practical definition of for adults has been debated; yet, elements determining a successful adolescent recovery aside from abstinence have not been delineated. Thus, we sought to explore how practitioners and administrators define "success" in recovery and how they foster youth progress towards success. Read More

Using Video Conferencing to Deliver a Brief Motivational Intervention for Alcohol and Sex Risk to Emergency Department Patients: A Proof-of-Concept Pilot Study.

Addict Res Theory 2017 18;25(4):318-325. Epub 2017 Jan 18.

Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, Brown University School of Public Health, Providence, RI 02912.

Brief motivational intervention (MI) is an efficacious approach to reduce heavy drinking and associated sexual risk behavior among Emergency Department (ED) patients, but the intensity of demands placed on ED staff makes the implementation of in-person MIs logistically challenging. This proof-of-concept pilot study examined the acceptability and logistic feasibility of using video-conferencing technology to deliver an MI targeting heavy drinking and risky sexual behavior to patients in an ED setting. Rigorous screening procedures were employed to ensure that the pilot sample represents the target portion of ED patients who would benefit from this multi-target MI. Read More

Short-term effects of a brief intervention to reduce alcohol use and sexual risk among homeless young adults: Results from a randomized controlled trial.

Addict Res Theory 2017 21;25(1):24-31. Epub 2016 Jun 21.

Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York, New York 10032, USA.

Background: Homeless young adults are more likely than their never-homeless counterparts to abuse alcohol and engage in risky sexual behaviors, yet no interventions to simultaneously reduce both these behaviors among this vulnerable population have been systematically designed and evaluated. We therefore developed a brief intervention (BI) to reduce both alcohol use and sexual risk behaviors among homeless young adults. The results of a randomized trial testing the BI against an education comparison (EC) are presented. Read More

Alcohol-Related Facebook Activity Predicts Alcohol Use Patterns in College Students.

Addict Res Theory 2016 29;24(5):398-405. Epub 2016 Feb 29.

Department of Psychological Science, Northern Kentucky University, Highland Heights, KY, USA.

The purpose of this study was to determine if a brief 10-item alcohol-related Facebook® activity (ARFA) questionnaire would predict alcohol use patterns in college students ( = 146). During a single laboratory session, participants first privately logged on to their Facebook® profiles while they completed the ARFA measure, which queries past 30 day postings related to alcohol use and intoxication. Participants were then asked to complete five additional questionnaires: three measures of alcohol use (the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test [AUDIT], the Timeline Follow-Back [TLFB], and the Personal Drinking Habits Questionnaire [PDHQ]), the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11), and the Marlowe-Crowne Social Desirability Scale (MC-SDS).

Nonmedical use of prescription drugs in emerging adulthood: differentiating sex from gender.

Addict Res Theory 2016 5;24(5):389-397. Epub 2016 Jun 5.

Prevention Sciences Research Center and School of Community Health and Policy, Morgan State University, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Male-female variations in health-behavior continue to be of national and international significance with men generally being more likely to be engaged in behaviors that enhance risk across an array of preventable diseases and injuries as well as premature deaths. The literature has identified non-medical use of prescription drugs (NMUPD) as a developing and particularly dangerous substance use behavior among college students. The literature has reported sex differences (male; female) in NMUPD but has yet to explain how gender-orientation (e. Read More

Depressive symptoms affect changes in nicotine withdrawal and smoking urges throughout smoking cessation treatment: Preliminary results.

Addict Res Theory 2016;24(1):48-53. Epub 2015 Jun 26.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, USA.

Background: Individuals who report more depressive symptoms consistently demonstrate higher rates of nicotine dependence and less successful smoking cessation than do individuals who report fewer depressive symptoms. Nicotine withdrawal and smoking urges are two potential factors that may account for the differences observed between these two groups. This study assessed whether elevated depression symptoms among nicotine dependent smokers are associated with changes in withdrawal and urges to smoke when undergoing smoking cessation treatment.

Department of Psychological Sciences, University of Missouri-Columbia, Columbia, SC, USA.

Some individuals "change" more dramatically than others when intoxicated, and the nature and magnitude of these changes can result in harmful outcomes. This study utilized reports (N¼374) of participants' "typical" five-factor model (FFM) characteristics across sober and intoxicated states and assessed the degree to which these reports could be grouped into meaningful clusters, as well as the association of cluster membership with negative alcoholrelated consequences. Results from finite mixture model clustering revealed a four cluster solution. Read More

Trait mindfulness and early maladaptive schemas in women seeking residential substance use treatment: A preliminary investigation.

Addict Res Theory 2015 Jul;23(4):280-286

Department of Psychology, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA.

Mindfulness has received an abundance of research attention in recent years, largely due to mindfulness-based interventions demonstrating positive mental and physical health outcomes. However, less research has examined individual's trait levels of mindfulness and how it is related to mental health, particularly among individuals seeking substance use treatment. Therefore, in the current study, we examined the relation between trait mindfulness and early maladaptive schemas (EMS), which are dysfunctional cognitive and behavioural patterns that theoretically underlie the development of mental health problems, among women seeking residential substance use treatment.

Time dependency of craving and response inhibition during nicotine abstinence.

Addict Res Theory 2015;23(3):205-212

Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Nicotine Addiction, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, 3535 Market Street, Suite 4100, Philadelphia, PA 19104.

Background: Nicotine withdrawal produces increased craving for cigarettes and deficits in response inhibition, and these withdrawal symptoms are predictive of relapse. Although it is well-established that these symptoms emerge early during abstinence, there is mixed evidence regarding whether they occur simultaneously. Given the importance of the early withdrawal period, this study examined craving and response inhibition at 24h and 72h abstinence. Read More

Introduction: Even treatments showing proven efficacy leave the majority of female smokers unable to quit. In response, there has been a special call for novel behavioral treatments, particularly those that target barriers to quitting faced by women. Significant barriers for women who smoke include perceived "risks" associated with cessation (e. Read More

A Review of the Literature Concerning HIV and Cigarette Smoking: Morbidity and Mortality, Associations with Individual- and Social-Level Characteristics, and Smoking Cessation Efforts.

Addict Res Theory 2015 Feb 19;23(1):10-23. Epub 2014 May 19.

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Baltimore, Maryland.

Cigarette smoking is endemic among many populations, but is especially prevalent among people living with HIV, and is consequently associated with a variety of types of morbidity as well as mortality. Despite this knowledge, relatively little research has been conducted among smokers living with HIV. Extant research has focused on examining individual-level characteristics associated with smoking behaviors, to the neglect of examining social-level factors. Read More

Fitting in and feeling fine: Conformity and coping motives differentially mediate the relationship between social anxiety and drinking problems for men and women.

Addict Res Theory 2015 6;23(3):231-237. Epub 2014 Nov 6.

Department of Psychology, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA.

Social anxiety nearly quintuples the risk of developing an alcohol use disorder. Although accumulating data suggest that socially anxious persons drink to manage negative effect, socially anxious persons suffer from elevations in both anxiety and depression. Thus, the present study sought to determine whether social anxiety was related to drinking to cope with anxiety or depression and whether drinking motives accounted for the relation of social anxiety to drinking problems among 461 (74% female, 48% with clinically elevated social anxiety) undergraduate drinkers.

Heart rate variability biofeedback: Theoretical basis, delivery, and its potential for the treatment of substance use disorders.

Addict Res Theory 2015 17;23(4):266-272. Epub 2015 Feb 17.

Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, Piscataway, USA.

Heart rate variability biofeedback (HRV BFB) is a biobehavioural clinical intervention that is gaining growing empirical support for the treatment of a number of psychological disorders, several of which are highly comorbid with substance use disorders (SUDs). The present article reviews the autonomic nervous system bases of two key processes implicated in the formation and maintenance of addictive pathology-affect dysregulation and craving-and asks if HRV BFB may be an effective intervention to ameliorate autonomic nervous system dysregulation in these processes, and as such, prove to be an effective intervention for SUDs. A detailed description of HRV BFB and its delivery is provided. Read More

Treatment choices and subsequent attendance by substance-dependent patients who disengage from intensive outpatient treatment.

Addict Res Theory 2015;23(5):391-403. Epub 2015 Apr 22.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA; CESATE, Philadelphia VA Medical Center, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

In an effort to increase engagement in effective treatment, we offered a choice of alternate evidence-based treatments to 137 alcohol- or cocaine-dependent adults (110 males, 27 females) who entered an intensive outpatient program (IOP) but disengaged within the first 8 weeks. We hypothesized that disengaged patients would choose and subsequently attend alternatives to IOP when given the chance, that their choices would be consistent with their previously-stated preferences, and that demographic and clinical characteristics would be predictive of alternatives chosen. Of 96 participants reached by phone, 19% chose no treatment; 49% chose to return to IOP; 24% chose individual psychotherapy; 6% chose telephone counseling; 2% chose naltrexone with medication management.

Gender differences in age of smoking initiation and its association with health.

Addict Res Theory 2015;23(5):413-420. Epub 2015 Apr 27.

Department of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA.

Background: It is generally accepted that smoking starts in adolescence and earlier initiation is associated with more negative health outcomes. Some research suggests that women initiate smoking at later ages and have more negative health outcomes than men. The purpose of this study was to examine gender differences in age of initiation and its association with health. Read More

The relationship between early maladaptive schemas and eating-disorder symptomatology among individuals seeking treatment for substance dependence.

Addict Res Theory 2015;23(5):429-436. Epub 2015 Apr 27.

Department of Psychology, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA.

Numerous studies have examined early maladaptive schemas (EMS) and their relationship to psychological disorders, including eating disorders (EDs) and substance use disorders (SUDs). However, to date, there are no empirical investigations that have examined the relationship between EMS and EDs among individuals seeking treatment for substance use. In an attempt to further elucidate this relationship, the purpose of the current, exploratory study was to examine the relationship between EMS, ED symptomatology (i. Read More

University of California, Los Angeles, School of Nursing.

Homeless men exiting California State jails and prisons are a heterogeneous community with varied childhood, incarceration and drug use histories. This cross-sectional study assessed whether homeless men who were discharged from either jail or prison into a residential substance abuse treatment program, differed in terms of methamphetamine and heroin use. This study utilized baseline data collected on 540 recently paroled men randomized to one of three programs that assessed the impact of a peer coaching intervention on subsequent drug use and re-incarceration.

Drinking Buddies: Who Are They and When Do They Matter?

Addict Res Theory 2014 ;22(1):57-67

Department of Psychology, Old Dominion University.

The present study sought to further examine the role of peers on alcohol use and problems among young adults. In particular, we focused on a specific subset of peers in one's social network mostly for activities related to alcohol use called "drinking buddies." The presence of drinking buddies in one's social network has been shown to predict heavy drinking uniquely over but few studies have focused on potential factors moderating the relationship.
