What's sleep got to do with it? Longitudinal associations between insomnia, PTSD, and alcohol use among U.S. Veterans
Addict Behav. 2022 May 6;132:107358. doi: 10.1016/j.addbeh.2022.107358. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTU.S. veterans are at risk for insomnia, which often co-occurs with symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and alcohol use. Much of the research on veterans and these three constructs is cross-sectional and focused on unidirectional pathways. Recent theoretical and empirical evidence suggests a dynamic interplay between insomnia, PTSD, and alcohol use, yet few longitudinal studies exist. A clearer understanding of these pathways is needed to help inform integrated treatments. Using a sample of 1,230 post-9/11 vete...

The indirect effect of negative emotionality via alcohol craving on abstinence self-efficacy among women in alcohol treatment
Addict Behav. 2022 Apr 29;132:107347. doi: 10.1016/j.addbeh.2022.107347. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWomen with alcohol use disorder (AUD) often present to treatment with heightened negative emotionality, including negative affect, anxiety, stress, and depression. Negative emotionality might impact women's alcohol abstinence self-efficacy (AASE), or confidence in their ability to remain sober, which is an important predictor of treatment outcomes. It is also plausible that other variables, such as alcohol craving, influence AASE. The present work examined the indirect effect of negative emotionality on AASE via alcohol c...

Association between empathy and drinking among a community sample of heavy drinkers: Sex differences and neural correlates
Addict Behav. 2022 Apr 29;132:107346. doi: 10.1016/j.addbeh.2022.107346. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAlcohol use disorder (AUD) is a major health problem, yet most individuals with AUD do not perceive a need for formal treatment and do not receive treatment. The lack of treatment seeking among individuals with AUD may suggest a lack of self-awareness and insight into the seriousness of AUD related problems, as well as lack of empathy for the impact of one's drinking on others. Recent work has suggested that empathy may be impaired among individuals seeking treatment for AUD. Further these impairments may differ by sex su...

Associations between sleep patterns, smoking, and alcohol use among older adults in Canada: Insights from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA)
Addict Behav. 2022 Apr 29;132:107345. doi: 10.1016/j.addbeh.2022.107345. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPoor sleep is associated with chronic health conditions among older adults. As substance use rates increase in this population, age-related physiological and cognitive declines may exacerbate its detrimental consequences, including sleep problems. We analyzed cross-sectional associations between sleep patterns, smoking, and alcohol use using baseline data from 30,097 community-dwelling Canadian adults aged 45-85 years from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging. Insomnia symptoms (difficulties falling/staying asleep), s...

Past-year hallucinogen use in relation to psychological distress, depression, and suicidality among US adults
CONCLUSION: Findings suggest there are differences among specific hallucinogens with respect to depression and suicidality. More research is warranted to understand consequences of and risk factors for hallucinogen use outside of medical settings among adults experiencing depression or suicidality.PMID:35525189 | DOI:10.1016/j.addbeh.2022.107343 (Source: Addictive Behaviors)

Use of protective behavioral strategies and blackout experience among mandated college students
CONCLUSIONS: This study adds nuance to the idea that PBS protect against adverse alcohol-related consequences. Only PBS that serve to limit or slow consumption appear to be protective against experiencing blackouts. Research on specific associations between types of PBS and consequences may lead to improved outcomes in interventions that incorporate PBS.PMID:35512439 | DOI:10.1016/j.addbeh.2022.107340 (Source: Addictive Behaviors)
