Barriers to accurately assessing prescription opioid misuse on surveys.

Authors:
Joseph J Palamar

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2019 19;45(2):117-123. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

a Department of Population Health , New York University Langone Medical Center , New York , NY , USA.

Surveys are the leading method of gathering data on prevalence and correlates of prescription opioid misuse. As the opioid crisis continues in the United States, reliable data on misuse have become increasingly important as under- and overreporting is common. This perspective discusses six potential barriers to researchers accurately assessing opioid misuse on surveys. Read More

A comparison between two retrospective alcohol consumption measures and the daily drinking diary method with university students.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2019 19;45(3):248-253. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

b School of Psychology , Bangor University , Bangor, UK.

Background: There are two main categories of retrospective self-report alcohol consumption measures: summary and daily drinking. Time-efficient summary measures have been criticized for being less able to capture sporadic and unpatterned drinking. A novel retrospective summary measure, the Typical and Atypical Drinking Diary (TADD), may produce more precise estimates of alcohol consumption than the gold-standard daily measure, the Timeline Followback (TLFB).

Difficulties with emotion regulation, mindfulness, and substance use disorder severity: the mediating role of self-regulation of attention and acceptance attitudes.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2019 14;45(1):97-107. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

a Department of Psychology , University "Vita-Salute San Raffaele" , Milan , Italy.

Background: Theoretical frameworks postulate that mindfulness represents a relevant therapeutic process in substance use disorders (SUDs), especially in treating difficulties with emotion regulation (DER). Nonetheless, it remains unclear how mindfulness dimensions, particularly self-regulation of attention and acceptance attitudes, are implicated in the well-validated relationship between DER and SUDs. It is also uncertain whether mindfulness is considered a common protective factor for SUDs. Read More

Daily relationship between positive affect and drinking to cope: the moderating role of difficulties regulating positive emotions.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2019 23;45(2):189-198. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

c Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences , University of Massachusetts Amherst , Amherst , MA , USA.

Background: Alcohol use is highly prevalent and linked to a wide range of negative outcomes among college students. Although emotion dysregulation has been theoretically and empirically linked to alcohol use, few studies have examined emotion dysregulation stemming from positive emotions.

Objective: The goal of the current study was to extend extant research by using daily diary methods to examine the potentially moderating role of difficulties regulating positive emotions in the daily relation between positive affect and alcohol use to cope with social and non-social stressors.

Decreased incidence of venous thromboembolism found in trauma patients with positive blood alcohol concentration on admission.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2019 7;45(1):77-83. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

a Department of Surgery, Division of Trauma, Burns and Surgical Critical Care , University of California, Irvine , Orange , CA , USA.

Background: The reported incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) disease in trauma is 1-58% and is considered a preventable cause of mortality. Positive blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is found in 8-45% of trauma admissions; however, its association with VTE is controversial.

Objectives: We hypothesized that a positive BAC on admission would be associated with a lower rate of VTE in a large national database of trauma patients. Read More
