Funding Opportunity PAR-20-224 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. Avenir means future in French, and the Avenir Award Program for Research on Substance Abuse and HIV/AIDS looks toward the future by supporting early stage investigators (ESI) proposing highly innovative studies that address NIH HIV/AIDS Research Priorities https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-15-137.html. The Avenir Award Program for Research on Substance Abuse and HIV/AIDS will support creative individuals who wish to pursue innovative research at the nexus of substance abuse and HIV/AIDS. The nexus with drug abuse should be cl...

Individuals with addictive disorders commonly exhibit a shortened temporal window (shortened period of time an individual can imagine into their own future), which interferes with treatment focusing on long-term sobriety or reductions in use. Episodic future thinking (EFT) involves generating personalized cues related to anticipated, positive future events. EFT has been shown to reduce impulsive decision-making and the reinforcing value of addictive substances; however, this has only been shown in nontreatment samples.

Jeffrey A. SingerPublic health interventions entail non ‐​economic as well as economic trade‐​offs. Some trade ‐​offs can involve other aspects of public health.I havewrittenabout how blanket bans on elective medical procedures combine with the fear already infused in the public to cause crucial delays in necessary health care. This adds to human suffering from causes other than the COVID-19 virus. Many people with chronic conditions, particularlychronic pain patients, are disproportionately affected by reduced access to routine care. Then there ’s the dramatic drop ‐...

Brief Interventions (BIs) for problematic drug use in general medical settings, including in Emergency Departments (EDs), have shown disappointing results compared to those that target problematic alcohol use. Telephone booster calls may augment the impact of a BI delivered in the ED. The current study uses data from the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) Protocol 0047, “Screening, Motivational Assessment, Referral, and Treatment in Emergency Departments (SMART-ED)”, a multisite randomized clinical trial conducted in six EDs in the U.S.

Over the last several decades, research regarding substance use treatment programs has focused on the unique and differential outcomes of male and female illicit substance users. Research less frequently examines the unique individual and contextual factors that may influence treatment outcomes. One such population that merits special consideration is pregnant women, as substance use within this population has deleterious effects for both the women and their unborn children. The current study employs propensity score matching to determine if pregnancy and referral source to treatment affect treatment program outcomes.

Increased retention in residential treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) has been associated with more favorable clinical outcomes for residents. Yet SUD treatment dropout remains high. It is essential to uncover factors contributing to these high rates. Little is known about whether features of an individual's social network prior to treatment entry are related to number of days in treatment or to clinical status at treatment termination. To examine these relationships, we analyzed data from 241 women (58.5% Hispanic) entering an SUD residential treatment facility, who agreed to participate in a parent randomized control trial.

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...

I had an idyllic childhood. I was a cheery kid with great parents, raised in a wonderful neighborhood, always cared for and never wanted for anything. When people hear this background from someone whose addiction was so strong that they planned their methamphetamine use around their pregnancy, it can be hard to reconcile. There is no blueprint for addiction; this disease has no face. Not one person in my life would have guessed I’d be homeless with multiple DUIs, totaled a number of vehicles, and would have my son taken away by authorities twice before his second birthday, but it happened. And despite how absurd it m...
