Transforming responses: Exploring the treatment of substance-using African American women.

J Ethn Subst Abuse 2019 Apr 3:1-29. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

c Clarity Treatment Center, LLC , Perth Amboy , New Jersey.

This article explores how intrapersonal and structural oppression may impact treatment and the recovery process of 23 self-identified African American women with histories of incarceration and substance use. Using a critical consciousness (CC) framework and content-based thematic analysis, researchers systematically coded and extracted themes and patterns from focus group data to evaluate how marginalizing processes-such as race-based discrimination-impact treatment, the therapeutic relationship, and service provision. Results indicate that participants' health and treatment were negatively impacted by oppressive factors, specifically the oppressive process of silencing. Read More

Traditional gender roles and alcohol use among Latinas/os: A review of the literature.

J Ethn Subst Abuse 2019 Mar 25:1-18. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

b Smith College , Northampton , Massachusetts.

Research indicates alcohol use among Latinas/os occurs within a gendered context. Scholars surmise this is due to traditional gender roles (TGRs) of Latina/o culture, but without an analysis of the literature these assertions are unclear. Thus, this article provides a narrative review of the extant TGRs and alcohol use literature among Latinas/os. Read More

Recent alcohol use among African American adolescents based on school experiences and individual perceptions toward school.

J Ethn Subst Abuse 2019 Mar 4:1-17. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

a Health Promotion and Education , University of Cincinnati , Cincinnati , Ohio.

This study examined whether recent alcohol use among African American adolescents differed based on school experiences and perceptions toward school. A secondary analysis of the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health was performed to answer research questions. Results from the multivariable logistic regression models revealed that male and female students at highest risk for recent alcohol use were those who hated/did not like going to school, never/seldom felt that the schoolwork they were assigned was meaningful and important, thought that the things they learned in school would be very/somewhat unimportant, got mostly grades C, D, and F the past semester, and felt that all/most of the students in their grade smoked cigarettes, used marijuana, drank alcohol, and got drunk weekly.

Perceptions of alcohol misuse among Alaska native health care system stakeholders: A qualitative exploration.

J Ethn Subst Abuse 2019 Feb 4:1-24. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

b Southcentral Foundation , Anchorage , Alaska.

Although alcohol misuse is a priority for health care systems serving Alaska Native and American Indian (ANAI) people, stakeholders' perceptions of misuse are understudied. Patients (n = 34), providers (n = 20), and leaders (n = 16) at a Tribally owned and operated health care system reported that alcohol misuse results from the interaction of factors, including colonization, structural factors, social alienation, social norms about overdrinking introduced at the time of colonizing contact, coping with emotions, and beliefs about ANAI people and alcohol. Childhood exposure to alcohol misuse leads some ANAI people to avoid alcohol altogether, shedding light on the high levels of abstinence observed in ANAI communities. Read More

Anti-racism and substance use treatment: Addiction does not discriminate, but do we?

J Ethn Subst Abuse 2019 Jan 14:1-27. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

a Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service , New York , New York.

Contemporary racism in the United States contributes to health, mental health, and substance use disorder (SUD) disparities among People of Color (POC) compared with White individuals. Despite entering into substance use treatment with a greater severity of SUD and related consequences, POC experience more barriers to treatment engagement, completion, and satisfaction than their White counterparts. As substance use treatment counselors are socialized within institutions of systemic racism, it is important to examine their positioning on racism in relation to their capacity for culturally competent care.

J Ethn Subst Abuse 2019 Jan 14:1-14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

a Health Science Department , California State University, Long Beach , Long Beach , California.

This study examined whether personality characteristics, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptomology, psychological distress, and religiosity were associated with prescription stimulant avoidance self-efficacy and whether these relationships were moderated by race/ethnicity among a probability sample of 1,053 college students. We used regression analyses to examine associations between avoidance self-efficacy and the independent variables of interest, and moderation analyses to identify whether these associations were moderated by race/ethnicity. Inattention, hyperactivity, sensation seeking, and psychological distress were inversely associated with prescription stimulant avoidance self-efficacy, whereas religiosity had a direct association.

a University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California.

This study examined intragroup xenophobic attitudes, ethnic identity, and substance use (N = 905). Drawing on cognitive dissonance theory, we hypothesized that intragroup xenophobic attitudes among Latinx individuals would be associated with higher levels of substance use (SU) in early adulthood and that ethnic identity would increase the strength of that association. We found that in 10th grade, xenophobic attitudes were higher among respondents with lower ethnic identity, a longer family history in the United States, and less stress. Read More

b Department of Health Behavior and Health Education, School of Public Health , University of Michigan , Ann Arbor , Michigan.

While racial discrimination (RD) is associated with increased alcohol-related problems among African Americans (AAs), researchers have not examined how RD contributes to the physical consequences of alcohol consumption over time. In addition, the protective role of religious coping has been discussed but not formally tested in pathways connecting RD to the physical consequences of alcohol consumption.
