  • Identifying women veterans with unhealthy alcohol use using
           gender‐tailored screening
    • Abstract: Background and ObjectivesTo assess the impact of gender‐tailored alcohol screening criteria.MethodsAmong N = 1,349 women, we calculated the proportion screening positive for unhealthy alcohol use with non‐tailored versus gender‐tailored criteria (a gender‐tailored binge‐drinking item, lower screen‐positive threshold, or both).ResultsThree percent more women screened positive with a modified binge‐drinking question, most reporting risky drinking. Fifteen percent more women screened positive with a lower threshold; most did not report risky drinking.Discussion and ConclusionsGender‐tailored binge‐drinking questions may improve detection of women's unhealthy alcohol use.Scientific SignificanceThese results can inform future efforts to improve alcohol screening for women.

  • Suicidal ideation in military veterans with alcohol dependence and PTSD:
           The role of hostility
    • Abstract: Background and ObjectivesSuicide is a significant public health problem among US military Veterans with rates exceeding civilian samples. Alcohol dependence (AD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are both associated with increases in suicidality. Given that risk of suicide is higher among those with both disorders, the study of relevant risk factors among those in this group is important. The current investigation focused on one such factor, hostility, and examined both overt hostility (ie, hostility that is more behavioral in nature and directed outwardly) and covert hostility (ie, hostility that is cognitive in nature and introspective) and their relationships to suicidal ideation.MethodsNinety‐three Veterans participating in a randomized, double‐blind, placebo‐controlled treatment study evaluating the efficacy of the alpha‐adrenergic agonist prazosin completed measures assessing overt hostility, covert hostility, and suicidal ideation at baseline. Depression symptoms and PTSD symptom severity also were assessed.ResultsOf the total sample, 60 participants (63.8%) indicated that they experienced suicidal ideation at some point in their lives. Covert hostility, in addition to PTSD symptom severity were found to be associated with the presence of lifetime suicidal ideation. Furthermore, depression symptoms were found to be associated with greater intensity of that ideation.Conclusion and Scientific SignificanceFindings highlight the importance of covert hostility as it relates to suicidal ideation among those with comorbid PTSD and AD and provides information which may help inform treatment approaches for high‐risk military Veterans.

  • Ecological momentary assessment of smoking behaviors in native and
           converted intermittent smokers
    • Abstract: Background and ObjectivesAbout 22% of adult smokers in the U.S. are intermittent cigarette smokers (ITS). ITS can be further classified as native ITS who never smoked daily and converted ITS who formerly smoked daily but reduced to intermittent smoking. Ecological momentary assessment (EMA) was conducted to determine the behaviors and experiences that are associated with the decision to smoke.MethodsThe study included 24 native ITS and 36 converted ITS (N = 60) from the Pennsylvania Adult Smoking Study. A baseline questionnaire, daily log, and an EMA smoking log that assessed emotions, activities, and smoking urges was filled out with each cigarette for 1 week to capture 574 smoking sessions.ResultsBoth groups had very low levels of cigarette dependence. Both groups were more tempted to smoke in positive or negative situations than situations associated with habituation. EMA showed that the most common emotional state during smoking sessions was positive (47%), followed by negative (32%), neutral (16%), and mixed (5%) emotions. Smokers were more likely to smoke during activities of leisure (48%) than during performative duties (29%), social (16%) or interactive occasions (7%). Converted ITS were more likely to smoke alone compared to native ITS (p

  • Treating women with opioid use disorder during pregnancy in Appalachia:
    • Abstract: Background and ObjectivesRising concerns regarding diversion and misuse of mono‐buprenorphine for treatment of pregnant women with opioid use disorders have sparked interest in the use of buprenorphine + naloxone to reduce misuse and diversion rates. Examined the relationship of prenatal buprenorphine + naloxone exposure to neonatal outcomes.MethodsThis is a retrospective chart review of 26 mother infant dyads in comprehensive medication‐assisted treatment with buprenorphine + naloxone during pregnancy.ResultsAll neonatal birth outcome parameters were within normal ranges, albeit on the lower side of normal for gestational age and birth weight. Only 19% of neonates required morphine pharmacology for NAS.ConclusionsUse of buprenorphine + naloxone shows relative safety in pregnancy.Scientific SignificanceThese findings can help better guide prescribing practices for pregnant patients at risk for misuse or diversion of buprenorphine.

  • Abstinence and reduced frequency of use are associated with improvements
           in quality of life among treatment‐seekers with cannabis use disorder
    • Abstract: Background And ObjectiveMany patients with cannabis use disorder (CUD) do not achieve or do not have abstinence as a goal of treatment, rather they reduce their use. Assessing outcome measures as they relate to functioning and reductions in cannabis use is an important area of study. Quality of life (QoL) shows promise as one such measure. Past studies have demonstrated gender differences in QoL and CUD. We aim to assess (1) the relationship between cannabis use and QoL and (2) gender effects in an outpatient medication treatment study for CUD.MethodsData from an 11‐weeks, double‐blind, placebo‐controlled trial of lofexidine and dronabinol for CUD (n = 62) was analyzed. Pearson's correlations between baseline QoL as measured with the Quality of Life, Enjoyment, and Satisfaction Questionnaire‐Short Form (QLES‐Q‐SF) and cannabis use assessed with modified timeline follow‐back (TLFB) were examined. Multiple linear regression models of cannabis use on end of study QLES‐Q‐SF were analyzed, while adjusting for baseline QLES‐Q‐SF, study arm, and gender. Moderation effects with gender were also tested.ResultsNo significant association between baseline cannabis use and QoL was found. End of study abstinence (F1,47 = 8.34, p = .006) and reduced proportion of using days (F1,47 = 9.48, p = .004) were each significantly associated with end of study QoL. Reduction in grams (F1,27 = 0.25, p = .62) was not associated with QoL at end of study. Gender was not a significant moderator.Discussion and ConclusionsAbstinence and lower frequency of use are associated with higher QoL, regardless of gender.Scientific SignificanceThis is the first time QoL has been demonstrated to change over the course of CUD medication treatment. QoL is an important outcome in CUD treatment.Trial RegistrationNCT01020019. (Am J Addict 2017;XX:1–7).
  • A review of brain stimulation methods to treat substance use disorders
    • Abstract: BackgroundSubstance use disorders (SUDs) are a leading cause of disability worldwide. While several pharmacological and behavioral treatments for SUDs are available, these may not be effective for all patients. Recent studies using non‐invasive neuromodulation techniques including Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) have shown promise for SUD treatment.ObjectiveMultiple studies were evaluated investigating the therapeutic potential of non‐invasive brain stimulation techniques in treatment of SUDs.MethodThrough literature searches (eg, PubMed, Google Scholar), 60 studies (2000–2017) were identified examining the effect of rTMS, tDCS, or DBS on cravings and consumption of SUDs, including tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, opioids, and stimulants.ResultsrTMS and tDCS demonstrated decreases in drug craving and consumption, while early studies with DBS suggest similar results. Results are most encouraging when stimulation is targeted to the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex (DLPFC).ConclusionsShort‐term treatment with rTMS and tDCS may have beneficial effects on drug craving and consumption. Future studies should focus on extending therapeutic benefits by increasing stimulation frequency and duration of treatment.Scientific SignificanceThe utility of these methods in SUD treatment and prevention are unclear, and warrants further study using randomized, controlled designs.

  • The relationships between depression, neuroticism, and attitudes (NDA
           model) in heroin abusers in Taiwan
    • Abstract: Background and ObjectivesHeroin use is a severe problem worldwide. To develop more effective treatments for heroin abusers, a comprehensive psychosocial model of heroin use should be established and examined. We created and assessed a neuroticism, depression, attitudes, and heroin addiction (NDA) model.MethodsIn this cross‐sectional study, 234 patients undergoing methadone replacement treatment were recruited from psychiatric clinics. We used Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) to assess all for neuroticism, depression, and a positive outcome expectancy (POE) (attitudes).ResultsThe full model had acceptable goodness‐of‐fit indices, but neuroticism was not significantly associated with a POE or heroin use. A reduced model that deleted insignificant paths had better goodness‐of‐fit indices, and neuroticism had indirect effects on heroin use via depression and a POEConclusionsOur findings provide evidence that depression, neuroticism, and POE affect heroin use. We also found that POE mediates between depression and heroin use. Despite the emotional regulation strategies recommended to help heroin abusers with depression to reduce the likelihood of their heroin use, teaching them with negative attitudes using heroin should also be considered when developing treatments for heroin abusers with depression.Scientific SignificanceOur findings provide a comprehensive mechanism of addiction that is integrated with emotion, cognition, and personality. Drug‐related beliefs and emotional regulation can be targeted to reduce the likelihood of relapse in abusers with higher levels of neuroticism. (Am J Addict 2018;XX:1–5)
  • Gambling‐related cognitive distortions predict level of function among
           US veterans seeking treatment for gambling disorders
    • Abstract: Background and ObjectivesGambling Disorder (GD) is characterized by recurrent gambling behavior that is associated with significant impairment and distress, high psychiatric comorbidities, and high functional disability. The military veteran population appears particularly susceptible to developing the disorder, but relatively little has been studied among this population. The purpose of the present study is to investigate the clinical psychopathologies and comorbidities of veterans seeking treatment for problem gambling and how problem gambling may impact functioning.MethodsTreatment‐seeking veterans meeting criteria for GD (N = 61) underwent a structured clinical interview and completed the South Oaks Gambling Screen (SOGS), the Gambling Symptom Assessment Scale (G‐SAS), the Yale‐Brown Obsessive‐Compulsive Scale for Gambling Disorder (PG‐YBOCS), the Gambling Belief Questionnaire (GBQ), the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS‐11), and the Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS).ResultsVeterans seeking treatment for GD had high rates of psychiatric and addiction disorder comorbidities. Few veterans had previously sought treatment and most reported substantive challenges in social and occupational functioning. When determining how gambling‐related characteristics (ie, severity and cognitive distortions) impact function, severity of cognitive distortions was the strongest statistical predictor of overall functional disability.Conclusions and Scientific SignificanceThe findings from this study indicate that there is high comorbidity between GD and other psychiatric and addictive disorders, as well as social and occupational functioning. In addition, cognitive distortions related to gambling relate importantly to overall functioning and should be considered in the development of interventions for veterans with GD.

  • A quantification of the alcohol use‐consequences association in college
           student and clinical populations: A large, multi‐sample study
    • Abstract: BackgroundThe present study sought to quantify the relationship between alcohol use and alcohol‐related consequences in both college student and clinical samples.MethodsWe gathered 33 college student datasets comprising of 15,618 participants and nine clinical sample datasets comprising of 4,527 participants to determine the effect size of the relationship between alcohol use and alcohol‐related consequences. We used random‐effects meta‐analytic techniques, separately in college and clinical samples, to account for a distribution of true effects and to assess for heterogeneity in effect sizes.ResultsResults demonstrated that the clear majority of the variability in alcohol‐related consequences is not explained by alcohol use (ie, >77% in college samples; >86% in clinical samples), and that there was significant heterogeneity in all effect sizes.Conclusions and Scientific SignificanceExperiencing alcohol‐related consequences results from factors that extend beyond frequency and quantity of alcohol consumed suggesting a need to examine other predictors of alcohol‐related consequences beyond alcohol use.
