Reduced cigarette smoking during injectable extended-release naltrexone treatment for opioid use disorder.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2020 May 7:1-6. Epub 2020 May 7.

Center for Studies of Addiction, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine , Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: The prevalence of tobacco cigarette smoking in the US has declined to approximately 15%, yet, it remains over 90% among individuals with opioid use disorder regardless of whether they are currently using opioids illicitly or as opioid substitution therapy. This disparity raises the question of whether opioids facilitate smoking among individuals with opioid use disorder and whether opioid antagonists may reduce it.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2020 Apr 28:1-12. Epub 2020 Apr 28.

Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

: Emerging evidence suggests that opioid receptor antagonists, such as naltrexone, are effective pharmacotherapies for alcohol, opioid, and possibly stimulant use disorders. It is posited that naltrexone exerts its effects, in part, by increasing functional connectivity between neural reward circuitry and frontal systems implicated in executive function. Yet no studies had examined whether executive function moderates these effects. Read More

A comparison of frequency of alcohol and marijuana use using short message service surveying and survey questionnaires among homeless youth.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2019 Dec 3:1-7. Epub 2019 Dec 3.

Department of Sociology, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, USA.

: There are several benefits to using short message service surveying (SMS) to gather data on substance use from homeless youth, including capturing data "in the moment" and verifying the timing of one behavior relative to another. Though SMS is a valuable data collection tool with highly mobile populations that otherwise are difficult to longitudinally sample, the reliability of SMS compared with surveys is largely unknown with homeless youth. Examining the reliability of SMS is important because these data can provide a more nuanced understanding of the relationships between various risk behaviors, which may lead to better intervention strategies with these youth.

The Desire to Dissociate Scale: factor analysis, cross-cultural findings, and links to substance-induced dissociation.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2019 Oct 17:1-11. Epub 2019 Oct 17.

Psychology Department, University of Nebraska-Lincoln , Lincoln , NE , USA.

: Past research identified that a desire for dissociative experiences, rather than dissociative tendencies, mediate the relationship between early sexual abuse and problem drinking in college students. Desire to dissociate was conceptualized as a mechanism facilitating substance-induced dissociation or the use of substances to achieve dissociative-like experiences and was measured using a modified version of the Dissociative Experiences Scale-II. The validity and cross-cultural generalizability of the modified scale are not yet known. Read More

Augmentation of morphine-conditioned place preference by food restriction is associated with alterations in the oxytocin/oxytocin receptor in rat models.

Am J Drug Alcohol Abuse 2020 May 14;46(3):304-315. Epub 2019 Oct 14.

Immunoregulation Research Center, Shahed University , Tehran, I.R. Iran.

Background: Studies indicate that food restriction (FR) reinforces the effects of morphine. The exact mechanisms by which FR influences the reward circuitry of morphine have not yet been determined.

Objectives: We hypothesized that the effects of FR on the oxytocin (OXT) system and HPA axis can be associated with substance abuse disorders. Read More
