About 25 million people are in recovery from substance use disorder (SUD), while approximately 100 million people live in chronic pain. With our nation fixated on the estimated 60,000 opioid-related overdose deaths in 2016, you might expect the interests of both groups to be in conflict. Consider two anecdotes. Paul is living with chronic pain from a car accident nine years ago. His physician abruptly cut his opioid dosage even though he’d been stable. In his legislative testimony, he said, “While I understand [some] are happy to abuse medications, I’m not one of them … I’m well below my prev...

CONCLUSIONS: Tailored motivational interventions could be offered to ambivalent patients, especially during the beginning of the treatment and some significant periods of the year. A particular focus should be brought on patients presenting such profiles in terms of level of alcohol problems, inclinations to drink and motivation to change. Overall, the study provides elements to better understand what may bring one patient to drop out of the treatment, and to improve the continuity of care.

Previous studies have suggested that levo-tetrahydropalmatine (l-THP), an alkaloid purified from the Chinese herb Corydalis, attenuates the behavioral changes induced by METH. Therefore, in this study, we explored whether l-THP could also protect against the METH-induced memory impairment examined using the Morris water maze (MWM). We found that low dose of MET...

AbstractA 40-year-old drug addict, who was being treated with methadone and occupational therapy, committed suicide by striking a wooden pencil into his right eye socket. While still conscious, he hit his head hard against a table, jamming the pencil even deeper into his head. The autopsy showed that the pencil missed the globe and lodged in the inner part of the right eye socket. It pierced the orbital part of the right ethmoid bone, the right ethmoid cells, and the right superior nasal concha, then passed through the body of the sphenoid bone and the clivus of the occipital bone before stopping in the brain tissue. The b...
