INTRODUCTION: The purpose of the study was to assess the incidence and type of toxic exposures presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) at Landspitali University Hospital in Iceland over one year and compare the results to another study performed eleven...

A 2.95 cGPA when I was younger but killed the LSAT and got a full ride to a smaller law school in Midwest and graduated there in top 10% of my class.

CONCLUSIONS: Naltrexone was not significantly associated with improvements in the primary drinking outcomes of PDA or TTHD at the end of treatment or at follow-up. However, Latinos appeared to benefit from naltrexone as demonstrated by improved ratings of global clinical outcome. These results indicate mixed findings for the efficacy of naltrexone among Latinos in the COMBINE Study. PMID: 28728646 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: This study offers further evidence of increased reinforcing value of alcohol among smokers in a sample of heavy drinkers from the community. Clinical implications and potential mechanisms underlying this relationship are discussed. PMID: 28728645 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Results indicate that negative and positive urgency have differential associations with alcohol problem domains. Results also suggest a distinction between the type of alcohol problems associated with these traits-negative urgency was associated with problems experienced during a drinking episode, whereas positive urgency was associated with alcohol problems that result from longer-term drinking trends.

CONCLUSIONS: Positive aspects of alcohol use seem to be emphasized on social networking sites. Sharing of alcohol-related content is associated with heightened alcohol use, which implies that such sites can be relevant for prevention agents. Social influence from social networking sites, such as exposure to others' alcohol-related content, is associated with one's own sharing of similar content. PMID: 28728643 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: IPV and NPV are fairly common among veterans seeking substance use treatment. The clinical characteristics of violence profiles indicate that cocaine use, PTSD symptoms, and legal involvement are treatment needs that vary with violence profile and may be useful for clinical decision making.

CONCLUSIONS: Receiving appropriate care is associated with lower mortality for patients with SUDs. Significant overall and within-facility service area associations of quality indicators and mortality support their use in encouraging providers to deliver the indicated care. These indicators should be prioritized above others lacking comparably strong process-outcome associations. PMID: 28728641 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Depression symptoms are associated with current and future hangover susceptibility. Hangover and depression overlap symptomatically and are empirically associated with one another, suggesting the possibility that common underlying causal mechanisms may contribute to both phenomena.
