Adicciones 2018 Nov 21;0(0):1266. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Santiago de Compostela. España.

Adolescence is a critical period in the development of addictive behaviors. In particular, the age at which adolescents start drinking is not a trivial matter, given the important consequences that it has. However, relatively little is known about what it is that causes them to start drinking at an ever earlier age. Read More

Adicciones 2018 Nov 21;0(0):1025. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Servicio de Psiquiatría. Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal, Madrid. Spain.

Strict adherence to antiretroviral treatment (ART) is needed to ensure the effectiveness of HIV treatment. The adverse effects of substance abuse and neurocognitive impairment on medication adherence have both been suggested by several studies. Therefore, the aim of this research is to study the relationship among adherence to ART, cognitive dysfunction, and abuse of certain substances (alcohol, heroin, cocaine, other stimulants, cannabis and benzodiazepines) and/or methadone treatment in our social environment.

Blunted autonomic responses to emotional stimuli in alcoholism: relevance of impulsivity.

Adicciones 2018 Jul 20;0(0):1146. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Department of Personality, Assessment and Psychological Treatment. School of Psychology, University of Granada, Campus Cartuja s/n. 18071 Granada, Spain. Fundació Villablanca, Serveis Assistencials. Hospital Universitari Institut Pere Mata, Ctra. Bellissens s/n. 43204 Reus, Spain..

Alcohol dependence is associated with abnormalities in the processing of emotional signals and impulsive alcohol-seeking behaviours, and these alterations compromise the effectiveness of treatment approaches. However, there is a lack of studies linking the experience of emotions to everyday motivationally relevant stimuli in alcohol-dependent individuals using both autonomic and self-report measures. We analysed heart rate (HR), skin conductance (SC) and subjective emotional reactivity to everyday affective stimuli in alcohol-dependent individuals, and their associations with impulsivity and degree of alcohol consumption.

Impulsivity and problem awareness predict therapy compliance and dropout from treatment for gambling disorder.

Adicciones 2018 Jul 20;0(0):1041. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Centro de Investigación Mente, Cerebro y Comportamiento (CIMCYC). Universidad de Granada, Granada. España. Universidad de Guayaquil, Guayaquil. Ecuador..

This study investigates the predictive value of impulsivity traits (as measured by the UPPS-P impulsive behaviour scale) and relevant covariates (sociodemographics, gambling severity, dysphoric mood, other potentially addictive behaviours, and non-verbal intelligence) with regard to treatment dropout and level of adherence to therapy guidelines and instructions in patients with gambling disorder. Sixty-six patients seeking treatment for gambling disorder, and recruited to participate in a larger protocol (G-Brain), were initially assessed in impulsivity traits and relevant covariates in the first six months after admission. Of these, 24 patients dropped out (DO) and 42 patients remained in therapy (NDO) during the subsequent 6-month follow-up period. Read More

Cannabis use among adolescents: Risk pattern, implications and possible explanatory variables.

Adicciones 2019 Jan 1;31(1):64-77. Epub 2019 Jan 1.

Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.

In contrast to the achievements with other substances, it has not yet been possible to reduce the levels of cannabis use, the most used illegal substance among Spanish adolescents. The objective of this paper consists of updating levels of use (incorporating ages 12 and 13), estimating high-risk use and analyzing possible associated variables. For this purpose, a correlational method was used consisting of the administration of a survey to compulsory secondary school and high school students from the autonomous community of Galicia (Spain) in 2016.

Setting the stage to quit smoking in Bipolar Disorder patients: brief advice in clinical practice.

Adicciones 2018 Jul 13;0(0):1006. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Reina Sofia University Hospital. CIBERSAM..

Tobacco consumption is the main preventable factor of mortality in smokers with bipolar disorder (BD), and any possible solutions are often blocked by prejudices over desire, and the possibilities and risks for these patients in giving up tobacco consumption. Adults with BD were recruited at 8 Mental Health Centres. Smokers were evaluated before and after a brief intervention based on the 3 A's and classified into a 'Stage of Change' (SOC) and their 'Readiness to Change' (RTC). Read More

The influence of gender roles in alcohol consumption: a qualitative study of adolescents and young adults in Asturias.

Adicciones 2018 Jul 13;0(0):1003. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Universidad de Oviedo.

Despite the implementation of prevention policies aimed at addressing alcohol consumption among both adolescents and young adults, there has been a considerable increase in those who abuse alcohol in Spain over the last decade. Official surveys on this phenomenon show that both the prevalence and risky consumption of men and women are reaching similar levels, with even higher figures for these behaviours in the case of girls at the end of adolescence. The aim of this article is to understand the influence of gender roles in the consumption of alcohol among adolescents and young adults. Read More
