Predictive Associations Among the Repeated Measurements of Anxiety, Depression, and Craving in a Dual Diagnosis Program.

J Dual Diagn 2019 Apr 14:1-7. Epub 2019 Apr 14.

b Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences , University of California-Los Angeles, The Camden Center , Los Angeles , California , USA.

Objective: Anxiety and depression commonly co-occur with substance use disorders. Conceptual models would presume that changes in anxiety and depression should lead to changes in drug and alcohol craving during treatment for co-occurring disorders, but no longitudinal investigation has explored this assumption. This study examined the associations among craving, anxiety, and depression in a dual diagnosis program. Read More

Heterogeneity in the Co-occurrence of Substance Use and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: A Latent Class Analysis Approach.

J Dual Diagn 2019 Mar 6:1-13. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

a Department of Psychology , University of North Texas , Denton , TX , USA.

Objective: Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often co-occurs with substance use (SU). Although there has been independent research on subgroups of participants based on their PTSD or SU responses, rarely are PTSD-SU typologies examined consistent with a precision medicine approach (and corresponding person-centered statistical approaches). The current study examined the nature and construct validity (covariates of depression, physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger, hostility, reckless and self-destructive behaviors [RSDB]) of the best-fitting latent class solution in categorizing participants based on PTSD (PTSD Checklist for DSM-5) and alcohol/drug use responses (Alcohol Use and Disorders Identification Test Alcohol Consumption Questions, Drug Abuse Screening Test).

Psychotic Decompensation During Nalmefene Treatment in a Patient With Schizoaffective Disorder: A Case Report.

J Dual Diagn 2019 Mar 4:1-4. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

a Université de Toulouse III , Toulouse , France.

Objective: Nalmefene is a kappa-opioid receptor agonist/antagonist which is currently prescribed to reduce heavy drinking days. Adverse events (AEs) have previously been described in trials, but these trials excluded patients with psychiatric comorbidities. This is important as psychiatric disorders are frequently associated with alcohol use disorders; therefore, the specific AEs in this population should be investigated. Read More

A Review of Integrated Care for Concurrent Disorders: Cost Effectiveness and Clinical Outcomes.

Authors:
Venu Karapareddy

J Dual Diagn 2019 Feb 26:1-11. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

a Department of Psychiatry , University of British Columbia , Vancouver , Canada.

Objective: The recognition of concurrent disorders (combined mental health and substance use disorders) has increased substantially over the last three decades, leading to greater numbers of people with these diagnoses and a subsequent greater financial burden on the health care system, yet establishing effective modes of management remains a challenge. Further, there is little evidence on which to base recommendations for a particular mode of health service delivery. This paper will further summarize the existing treatment models for a comprehensive overview. Read More

Field Test of a Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Training-Based Intervention for Smoking Cessation and Opioid Relapse Prevention in Methadone Treatment.

J Dual Diagn 2019 Jan 15:1-7. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

a Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School , Piscataway, NJ.

Objective: Almost all individuals in methadone treatment for opioid dependence smoke cigarettes, and half of people in methadone treatment have an opioid relapse within six months. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills training has shown promise for addressing substance use and a variety of health behaviors and conditions; however, it has never been evaluated for smoking cessation in any population. The objective of this study was to field test a DBT skills training-based intervention for tobacco dependence and opioid relapse prevention (DBT-Quit) among people in methadone treatment. Read More

Precision Psychiatry and Dual Disorders.

J Dual Diagn 2019 Jan 14:1-10. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

b Research Unit and Dual Disorders Program, Centre Neuchâtelois de Psychiatrie (CNP) , Neuchâtel , Switzerland.

Objective: Addiction co-occurs with distinct pathological personality traits, other psychiatric disorders or symptoms and cognitive impairment, which are known as dual disorders or co-occurring disorders. This symptomatic high concurrency suggests that both conditions are in some ways causally linked. Research is ongoing to identify distinctive neurobehavioral mechanisms and endophenotypes that predispose individuals to compulsive drug use and other mental disorders. Read More

A Pilot Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Glycine for Treatment of Schizophrenia and Alcohol Dependence.

J Dual Diagn 2019 Jan 11:1-10. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

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

Objectives: The hypofunctioning of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are thought to play an important role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. The augmentation of the glutamatergic system through the NMDA receptor may attenuate alcohol craving and use. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of glycine, an agonist of the glycine B co-agonist site of the NMDA receptor on alcohol consumption and cravings as well as on negative symptoms in schizophrenia.

Permanent Supportive Housing and Specialized Co-Occurring Disorders Wraparound Services for Homeless Individuals.

J Dual Diagn 2019 Jan 4:1-10. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

d DMA Health Strategies , Boston , Massachusetts , USA.

Objective: Among individuals experiencing chronic homelessness, there is a high rate of co-occurring mental health and substance use, which has traditionally been addressed through the delivery of permanent supportive housing along with substance use and mental health services. However, this population often has difficulty engaging in treatment for co-occurring disorders, which can result in exacerbation of symptoms and housing loss. Maintaining Independence and Sobriety Through Systems Integration, Outreach, and Networking (MISSION) is a co-occurring mental health and substance use wraparound approach that was pilot-tested alongside Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) to improve treatment access and engagement.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Nov 16:1-8. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

a Centre de Recherche de l'Institut , Universitaire en Santé Mentale de Montréal , Montréal , Canada.

Objective: Compared to the general population, tobacco smoking cessation rates are lower in populations with schizophrenia. Unfortunately, the potential neurophysiologic mechanisms underlying these low cessation rates in schizophrenia have been seldom studied using functional neuroimaging. Recently, it has been shown that tobacco cravings are increased in smokers with schizophrenia compared to smokers with no comorbid psychiatric disorder. Read More

Resting Heart Rate Variability: Exploring Associations With Symptom Severity in Adults With Substance Use Disorders and Posttraumatic Stress.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Nov 11:1-6. Epub 2018 Nov 11.

a Department of Psychology , University of Houston , Houston , Texas , USA.

Objective: Substance use disorders and posttraumatic stress symptoms are commonly comorbid. Previous studies have established that those with substance use disorders or posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have lower high frequency-heart rate variability (HF-HRV) compared to controls, suggesting that low HF-HRV may be a biomarker of a common physiological mechanism underlying both disorders. We evaluated HF-HRV as a potential biomarker of a common underlying process by testing whether lower HF-HRV related to greater severity of substance use and PTSD symptoms in individuals with both substance use disorders and at least four symptoms of PTSD.

Comorbid cannabis and tobacco use disorders in hospitalized patients with psychotic-spectrum disorders.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Sep 28:1-10. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

a Butler Hospital, Psychosocial Research Program, Providence , Rhode Island , USA.

Objective: Individuals with psychotic-spectrum disorders use tobacco and cannabis at higher rates than the general population and individuals with other psychiatric disorders, which may contribute to increased rates of medical problems and mortality. The present study examined whether individuals with psychosis and comorbid tobacco and/or cannabis use disorders exhibit differing clinical characteristics in terms of their sociodemographic, mental health, substance use, physical health, and medication use patterns. Elucidation of these profiles, and determining their relative severity, has important implications for treatment, including offering more targeted interventions based on type of comorbidity pattern.

Concurrent Disorders and Health Care Utilization Among Homeless and Vulnerably Housed Persons in Canada.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Jan-Mar;14(1):21-31. Epub 2018 Apr 25.

a Division of General Internal Medicine , Department of Medicine, University of British Columbia , Vancouver , British Columbia , Canada.

Objective: Individuals who are homeless or vulnerably housed have a higher prevalence of concurrent disorders, defined as having a mental health diagnosis and problematic substance use, compared to the general housed population. The study objective was to investigate the effect of having concurrent disorders on health care utilization among homeless or vulnerably housed individuals, using longitudinal data from the Health and Housing in Transition Study.

Methods: In 2009, 1190 homeless or vulnerably housed adults were recruited in Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver, Canada. Read More

Predicting Intention to Use Nicotine Replacement Therapy in People Attending Residential Treatment for Substance Dependence.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Apr-Jun;14(2):120-129. Epub 2019 Feb 17.

c We Help Ourselves, Rozelle , Sydney , New South Wales , Australia.

Objective: Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is recommended as a frontline smoking cessation tool for people attending mental health and substance dependence treatment services. Previous research suggests that NRT is underutilized in these settings. To improve the use of NRT among people attending residential treatment for substance use disorders, it is important that the factors influencing smokers' decisions to use NRT are understood.

Translating Evidence-Based Practice for Managing Comorbid Substance Use and Mental Illness Using a Multimodal Training Package.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Apr-Jun;14(2):111-119. Epub 2018 Jun 6.

a Discipline of Addiction Medicine , National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Centre for Excellence in Mental Health and Substance Use, The University of Sydney , New South Wales , Australia.

Objective: Comorbid mental health and substance use problems are highly prevalent in substance use treatment settings and generally lead to poorer treatment outcomes. Pathways to Comorbidity Care (PCC) is a multimodal training program developed to encourage an integrated service approach to improve clinicians capacity to identify and manage comorbid substance use and mental health outcomes within public drug and alcohol treatment settings.

Methods: In this paper we describe the concepts underlying the PCC package and the use of implementation science to assess and overcome potential barriers, including clinicians preferences, knowledge about best practice, and professional culture. Read More

Clinical Outcomes From a 10-Week Follow-Up Psychoeducational Program for Dual Diagnosis.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Apr-Jun;14(2):102-110. Epub 2018 Apr 4.

c University of South Wales, School of Psychology and Therapeutic Studies , Pontypridd , South Wales , United Kingdom.

Background: Dual diagnosis covers a broad spectrum of mental health and substance misuse conditions occurring concurrently (NICE, 2016 ). Its manifestation is complex and, as such, the disorder is recognized as influencing adherence to prescribed medication and service engagement and has a worse prognosis than substance use and mental health conditions occurring independently.

Aims: To determine the effectiveness of psychoeducational group therapy in a sample of dual diagnosis patients. Read More

Negative Affect Intensity and Hostility in Individuals With Alcohol Use Disorder With or Without Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Apr-Jun;14(2):96-101. Epub 2018 Apr 25.

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

Objective: Negative affect intensity and hostility have both been implicated in alcohol use disorders (AUD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when they occur separately, but neither have been compared or explored among those with comorbid AUD and PTSD. This study is a secondary analysis designed to compare levels of negative affect intensity and hostility among those with AUD to those with comorbid AUD and PTSD.

Methods: Participants (n = 113) were recruited from the placebo-controlled groups of two distinct 12-week clinical trials (NCT00342563 and NCT00744055). Read More

"I Smoke Like This to Suppress These Issues That Are Flaws of My Character": Challenges and Facilitators of Cessation Among Smokers With Bipolar Disorder.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Jan-Mar;14(1):32-39. Epub 2018 Jan 19.

e Division of Public Health Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center & Department of Psychology , University of Washington , Seattle , Washington , USA.

Objective: Smokers with bipolar disorder (BD) have low rates of successful quitting, yet no prior studies have evaluated the process of quitting among these smokers in the context of a current quit attempt. To facilitate development of more effective interventions, we conducted a qualitative exploration of challenges and facilitators of quitting in an intervention study for smokers with BD.

Methods: Participants were adult daily smokers with BD (n = 10) who completed a 10-week smoking cessation intervention consisting of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and nicotine patch. Read More

Addiction Vulnerability: Exploring Relationships Among Cigarette Smoking, Substance Misuse, and Early Psychosis.

J Dual Diagn 2018 Apr-Jun;14(2):78-88. Epub 2018 Mar 22.

c School of Psychology, University of Newcastle , Callaghan , New South Wales , Australia.

Objective: Smoking rates in adolescents at risk for psychosis are significantly greater than in those who are not at risk. Recent research suggests that cigarette smoking in adolescence may be a potential marker of transition to psychosis, although the exact relationship between the two remains unclear. Our aim was to examine whether tobacco smoking is a potential marker of transition to psychosis or subsequent episodes of psychosis, independently of other substance use, or alternatively whether smoking is essentially a general marker of later mental illness episodes.

Increased Depression and Anxiety Symptoms are Associated with More Breakdowns in Cognitive Control to Cocaine Cues in Veterans with Cocaine Use Disorder.

J Dual Diagn 2017 Oct-Dec;13(4):298-304. Epub 2017 Nov 9.

a Department of Psychology , College of The Holy Cross , Worcester , Massachusetts , USA.

Objective: Cue-elicited craving is a clinically important aspect of cocaine addiction directly linked to cognitive control breakdowns and relapse to cocaine-taking behavior. However, whether craving drives breakdowns in cognitive control toward cocaine cues in veterans, who experience significantly more co-occurring mood disorders, is unknown. The present study tests whether veterans have breakdowns in cognitive control because of cue-elicited craving or current anxiety or depression symptoms. Read More
