Cognitive functioning and treatment outcomes in a randomized controlled trial of internet-delivered drug and alcohol treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: The benefit of internet delivered treatment over standard care was unchanged across a range of cognitive functioning. Consistent with previous research, mild to moderate impairment in reasoning and cognitive flexibility were associated with lower retention across both treatment arms. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: An internet-delivered cognitive behavioral intervention for substance use disorders, TES, is equally effective across a spectrum of cognitive functioning among diverse patients.

Predictors of initiation of nicotine, alcohol, cannabis, and cocaine use: Results of the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC).
CONCLUSIONS: Although the age of substance use initiation varies by substance, in more than 50% of cases initiation of use occurs in the first two decades of life. Although most risk factors for substance use initiation are common across substances, some are substance-specific. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: This information may help in the development of empirically-based preventive interventions. (Am J Addict 2018;XX:1-8).

Nonmedical benzodiazepine use in adults with alcohol use disorder: The role of anxiety sensitivity and polysubstance use.
CONCLUSIONS: These results replicate findings from research on opioid use disorder suggesting that anxiety sensitivity is associated with nonmedical benzodiazepine use in women and not men. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: Targeted intervention to those with polysubstance use-including education on overdose risk when benzodiazepines are combined with other substances-is indicated in men and women with alcohol use disorder. Anxiety sensitivity may be a potential therapeutic target to reduce nonmedical benzodiazepine use among women with alcohol use disorder. (Am J Addict 2018;XX:1-6).

Comparison of three measurement models of discounting among individuals with methamphetamine use disorder.
CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, the current study is the first to report significantly greater discounting in a MA-M relative to M-M discounting task among individuals with MAUD, an outcome consistent with other psychomotor stimulants and drugs of abuse. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: The differential results observed across the three discounting models reaffirm potential issues with AUC noted in recent studies and highlight that researchers must be cautious when deciding on their final model of discounting.

A systematic review: Candidate gene and environment interaction on alcohol use and misuse among adolescents and young adults.
CONCLUSIONS AND SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: This review suggests that GxE findings may advance our knowledge regarding which developmentally specific conditions result in the expression of candidate genes that influence youth alcohol use and misuse. However, since a significant number of studies had small sample sizes and most studies had small effect sizes, findings need replication across independent studies with large samples.

Positive expectancies mediate the association between sensation seeking and marijuana outcomes in at-risk young adults: A test of the acquired preparedness model.
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings are consistent with the APM and suggest that higher sensation seeking is related to increased positive beliefs about marijuana outcomes, which is related to higher marijuana use and more MUD symptoms. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: These findings suggest that positive expectancies are an important risk factor for marijuana use and misuse, particularly for at-risk individuals with elevated rates of sensation seeking. Positive marijuana expectancies may be important to address in interventions for at-risk individuals. (Am J Addict 2018;XX:1-6). PMID: 29873863 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] ...

A randomized controlled trial of a gender-focused addiction model versus 12-step facilitation for women veterans.
CONCLUSIONS: WPR provides a useful addition to women's SUD treatment options, with outcomes no different than an established evidence-based model, TSF. Both showed positive impact on substance use and related areas. Our lack of differences based on gender-focus may reflect women veterans being acculturated to a male military environment. Limitations include lack of an untreated control, a sample limited to veterans, and use of a large effect size for power assumptions. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: This is the first RCT of a gender-focused approach for women veterans with SUD. (Am J Addict 2018;27:210-216). PMID: 2959...
