Authors: Gold S, Figueiro-Filho E, Agrawal S, Selk A Abstract OBJECTIVE: To reduce opioids consumed after discharge from hospital after elective cesarean delivery by 50%. METHODS: This was a two-week parallel group non-blinded randomized controlled trial at Mount Sinai Hospital. Eligible women undergoing elective cesarean delivery were assigned by random number generation to receive the hospital's standard post-cesarean opioid prescription of 20 1-mg hydromorphone tablets or a prescription for 10 1-mg hydromorphone tablets if opioids were required in hospital or no hydromorphone if no opioids were required in h...

Stimulant drugs, including novel psychoactive substances (NPS, formerly “legal highs”) have addictive potential which their users may not realize. Stimulants increase extracellular dopamine levels in the brain, including the reward and addiction pathways, through interacting with dopamine transporter (DAT). This work aimed to assess the molecular and atomistic mechanisms of stimulant NPS actions at DAT, which translate into biological outcomes such as dopamine release in the brain’s reward pathway. We applied combined in vitro, in vivo, and in silico methods and selected 2-diphenylmethylpiperidine (2-DPMP...

This study investigated whether patterns of impulsive decision-making (i) differ between individuals with DSM-5 substance use disorders (SUD) or non-substance-related addictive disorders (ND) and healthy controls, and (ii) predict the increase of SUD and ND severity after one year.MethodsIn a prospective-longitudinal community study, 338 individuals (19 –27 years, 59% female) were included in one of three groups: SUD (n = 100), ND (n = 118), or healthy controls (n = 120). Group differences in four impulsive decision-making facets were analyzed with the Bayesian priors: delay discounting (mean = 0.37, variance = 0.02)...

This article provides an overview of evidence-based models of integrated care, discusses the key elements of such models, considers how existing policies have fallen short, and outlines future policy strategies. Priorities include payment policies that adequately support structural elements of integrated care and incentivize multidisciplinary team formation and accountability for patient outcomes, as well as policies to expand the specialty mental health and addiction treatment workforce and address the social determinants of health that disproportionately influence health and well-being among people with mental illness or...
