Gender Differences in Clinical and Sociodemographic Patterns of Substance Use Disorder
Conclusions: There is a clear difference between men and women in many of the aspects covered in this study, which confirms that different programs need to be developed specifically for women, instead of conducting the same treatment programs for both men and women, which leads to unsatisfactory results among female patients and dissatisfaction also among those involved in the treatment of addiction.

Aggressive Behavior and Substance Use Disorder: The Heroin Use Disorder as a Case Study
Conclusions: Our studies suggest an in-depth psychopathologic evaluation of HUD patients, with particular attention to be focused on aggressive symptoms. Moreover, our data are in agreement with the self-medication theory of Khantzian, which looks at heroin addiction as a way of controlling violent manifestations. For this reason, providing an adequate amount of opioid agonists seems to be crucial in the management of violent opioid addicts. (Source: Addictive Disorders and Their Treatment)

Substance Use in Youth With Autism Spectrum Disorder
Most adolescents experience stress, but the challenges of adolescence can be particularly stressful for youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Individuals with ASD and substance use present unique social and adaptive-skill deficits and cognitive and communication abilities that could impact the success of traditional substance use treatment. Additional, specific interventions during substance use tre...

Clinic Payment Options as a Barrier to Accessing Medication-assisted Treatment for Opioid Use in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Objectives: For patients with opioid addiction seeking treatment, an effective option is Medication-assisted Treatment (MAT). In Albuquerque, the city with the greatest number of people who use opioids in New Mexico, the demand for MAT exceeds the number of patients receiving treatment.

Can a Low Dosage of Aripiprazole Modify Incentive Salience in Naive Bipolar Patients Who Gamble?
Gambling disorder is a pathologic condition, resulting from the interaction of multiple risk factors. Among these, dopamine neurotransmission is known for playing a significant role, as seen, for example, in patients using dopamine replacement therapy prescribed for Parkinson disease, in which gambling is considered to be iatrogenic. Considering this, together with the general mechanism of action of antipsychotic drugs, growing attention has recently been dedicated to Aripiprazole and to its partial dopaminergic agonism (reducing D2-receptor hyperactivation in the mesolimbic pathway and improving D2-receptor stimulation in...

Epidemiologic Investigation of the Elderly Deaths Caused by Narcotic and Psychedelic Drug Abuse Complications Referred to the Legal Medicine Organization of Tehran, Iran During 2013 and 2014
Conclusions: It can be argued that factors such as low level of education, male gender, habitation in a big city, free occupation, retirement or unemployment can contribute to an individual’s inclination to become addicted to narcotic or psychedelic drug abuse in aging (in the elderly), and these factors may be used to identify the elderly people at risk of drug addiction. Low prices and the fast availability of opium in Iran and some misconceptions about opium among Iranian people, may lead to its prevalent consumption among the elders. Increasing awareness in the elderly about the adverse effects of narcotic or p...
