Medication assisted therapy (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD) in youth improves outcomes and saves lives
Rising morbidity and mortality for adolescents and young adults in the USA is a difficult health issue. Despite recommendations by professional organisations and the government to use MAT for youths with OUD as early as possible, youths are one-tenth as likely as an adult to receive MAT. Reasons for not prescribing early include lack of paediatric prescribers, clinician apprehension, stigma associated with MAT, and prescribing only after failure of behavioural therapy. Since attrition in therapy is greater for youths compared with adults, MAT may be the best retention strategy for OUD treatment in youth that ultimately sav...

University of Guelph researchers uncover why environmental cues make drug addiction extra hard to beat
(University of Guelph) Besides triggering the brain's emotional and stimulus-response systems, environmental cues activate areas where memories are processed, according to this University of Guelph study. Prompting these memory processing systems makes it extra difficult to counter addiction because the classic stimulus-response mechanisms are reinforced by the memory effects of environmental drug cues. While this double effect makes it hard to treat drug abuse, this finding may offer a way to use cues to improve cognitive behavioural therapy. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
