The United States has a dearth of physicians who are trained to offer medication treatment with buprenorphine to patients with opioid use disorder (OUD). One community-based family medicine residency program in Massachusetts has shown that integrating patients treated with buprenorphine directly into resident training can help increase the number of graduates prescribing buprenorphine. Layla Cavitt, M.D., of the Tufts University School of Medicine Lawrence Family Medicine Residency and colleaguesoutlined the program ’s steps and success in theJournal of Substance Abuse Treatment.In 2011, the Lawrence residency progra...

Troy Johnston swears he wanted to play by the rules.

In these applications, companies were tasked with proving that their products were, on balance, good for U.S. public health—namely by giving adult smokers a less-dangerous alternative than traditional cigarettes. As required, Johnston filed applications for all 47,000 ni...

We present selected literature on: techniques used to link sugar and sweet tastes to addiction neurobiology and behaviors; sugar and sweet taste “addiction”; the relationship of low calorie sweetener (LCS) intake to addictive behaviors and total calorie intake. Finally, we examined the reward value of sweet tastes and contrasted that with the literature describing addiction. The lack of reproducibility of fMRI data remains problematic for attributing aa common neurobiological pathway activation of drugs and foods as conclusive evidence for sugar or sweet taste “addiction”. Moreover, the complicated ...

Gambling Disorder (GD) has been recently re-classified in the DSM-5 under the “substance-related and addictive disorders,” in light of its genetic, endophenotypic, and phenotypic resemblances to substance dependence. Diminished control is a core defining concept of psychoactive substance dependence or addiction and has given rise to the concept of “behavioral” addictions, which are syndromes analogous to substance addiction, but with a behavioral focus other than ingestion of a psychoactive substance. The main symptom clusters are represented by loss of control, craving/withdrawal, and neglect of ot...
