Purpose of review To provide an accessible overview of some of the most recent trends in the application of machine learning to the field of substance use disorders and their implications for future research and practice. Recent findings Machine-learning (ML) techniques have recently been applied to substance use disorder (SUD) data for multiple predictive applications including detecting current abuse, assessing future risk and predicting treatment success. These models cover a wide range of machine-learning techniques and data types including physiological measures, longitudinal surveys, treatment outcomes, national...

The introduction of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010 allowed states to expand the availability of public insurance to their citizens [1]. Thirty-five states ultimately adopted insurance expansion. It was widely anticipated that the law would alter utilization of medical services. One of the surprising changes has been an increase in the utilization of emergency department (ED) services for medical [2,3] and substance abuse services [4,5]. This increase occurred despite an increase in utilization of outpatient and preventative services, but not for non-substance-related mental health services [6].

The U.S. has the second-highest incarceration rate in the world and spends more than $80 billion annually to house inmates. The clinical research literature suggests that methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) is an effective method to treat opioid use disorders (OUD) and that jails are a potentially valuable environment to implement MMT. Currently, jail-based MMT is rarely implemented in practice, due in part to resource limitations and other economic considerations. The primary goal of this study was to perform a cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) of jail-based MMT using data from a unique MMT continuation program located ...

Many studies have employed the Short Alcohol Attitudes Problem Perception Questionnaire (SAAPPQ) to measure professionals' attitudes toward working with people experiencing alcohol problems. However, research has not confirmed the internal structure of the SAAPPQ, leaving open the possibility that scale scores are not valid empirical proxies for underlying attitudes. It is also unclear if measurement invariance holds over time or across groups. This is an important gap in light of evidence that (a) experiences can change the structure of scales and (b) structures of some popular scales differ dramatically between groups.

Abstract Many cancer cells share the property of carrying out markedly elevated rates of glycolysis to generate energy even in the presence of sufficient oxygen, and this is known as the Warburg effect. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the Warburg effect, as the field of oncology has amassed evidence that cellular metabolism may play a prominent role in many neoplasms. Largely in the past decade, another prominent and perhaps surprising factor has emerged in the cancer literature: the catecholamine molecules, epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline), appear to play a r...

The global novel coronavirus pandemic afflicting everyone is showing mixed signs of activity. In some countries it appears to be easing, while in others it appears to be experiencing a resurgence. It’s not at all clear when the pandemic will end, but it’s unlikely to do so before 2021. What has become increasingly clear is that the toll of the pandemic will impact more than the people who come down with COVID-19. The mental health impact of living with a pandemic is being mostly ignored — for now. But as the deaths continue to rise, we need to pay close attention to the cost of the pandemic’s reperc...
