Conclusion A person’s access to rehab should be based on their individual condition, circumstances and ability to benefit, not assumptions based on their age.  Intergenerational rehabs can work well for some older adults provided they are responsive to age-related needs.  However, some older-adults may benefit from being grouped with residents of a similar age.

New research published today (20 November) shows 1three out of four residential alcohol treatment facilities (rehabs) in England are failing older adults on the basis of arbitrary age limits which prevent them from accessing specialist rehab support. The study, which is being debated at a panel discussion at the House of Lords on Tuesday, 21 November, is being published together with a new report by Drink Wise, Age Well which shows deep and widespread ageism across the whole alcohol treatment system in the UK. 2With higher-risk drinking declining across all age groups other than the over 50s and new figures showing alcohol...

Methods This is a correlational and cross-sectional study using a convenience sample of...

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasapproved the use of an electric stimulation device to help to reduce the symptoms of opioid withdrawal, marking the first time a device has been indicated for withdrawal symptoms.The NSS-2 Bridge is a small device placed behind the patient ’s ear that emits electrical pulses to stimulate cranial nerves. These stimulations provide relief from common withdrawal symptoms during the first few days of drug abstinence; these include sweating, tremors, stomach problems, insomnia, and joint pain.“Given the scope of the epidemic of opioid addiction, we need to find innovative ne...

Conclusion This study in healthy recreational CNS depressant users showed that single doses of brivaracetam 50mg (therapeutic single dose) had lower sedative, positive, and negative drug effects than alprazolam, while brivaracetam 200 and 1000mg (supratherapeutic single doses) were more similar to alprazolam. The subjective profile of brivaracetam appeared to be similar to that of levetiracetam, but further evaluation using a range of levetiracetam doses would be needed to confirm similar abuse potential.
