The role of gender and veteran status in healthcare access among a  national sample of U.S. adults with unhealthy alcohol use
Conclusions: Overall, healthcare access was better for Veterans and females with unhealthy alcohol use compared to civilians and males with unhealthy alcohol use. However, given that females were more likely to report a cost barrier, future implementation research aiming to improve equity in care may want to explore reasons for cost barriers and develop strategies to help reduce these barriers in order to eliminate gender disparities in primary care-based alcohol-related care.PMID:36722613 | DOI:10.1080/10826084.2023.2170182 (Source: Substance Use and Misuse)

Negative Life Events, Protective Factors, and Substance-Related Problems: A  Study of Resilience in Adolescence
CONCLUSIONS: NLE had a strong relation with SRP in this study. Protective factors buffered against SRP for all adolescents - but particularly so for adolescents who had high exposure to NLE. These findings highlight the need for preventive efforts to strengthen protective factors that may promote resilience among adolescents at risk for SRP.PMID:36710631 | DOI:10.1080/10826084.2022.2161319 (Source: Substance Use and Misuse)

Latent Classes of Perceived Addictiveness Predict Marijuana, Alcohol, and Tobacco Use in Youth and Young Adults
This study examined youth and young adults' (YAs) perceived addictiveness across several substances and the associations between addiction perceptions and substance use. Methods: Data were collected in 2019 in an online cohort study of Vermonters aged 12-25. Latent class analyses grouped participants by perceived addictiveness of nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, marijuana, cigarettes, electronic vapor products (EVPs), and opioids. Bivariate multinomial logistic and modified Poisson regression estimated associations between sociodemographics, substance use correlates, and subsequent use across latent classes. Results: Four late...

"It Breaks the Ice": A Qualitative Examination of Drinking Game Motives, Harms and Protective Behavioral Strategies among University Students in Australia
Conclusions: The interplay between DG motives, PBS and associated harms was identified. Expanding measurement of pre-existing DG motives and PBS is recommended, as well as the potential of DG motives to inform proposed interventions.PMID:36683532 | DOI:10.1080/10826084.2023.2165412 (Source: Substance Use and Misuse)

Psychopathic Traits Are Associated with Lifetime History of Nicotine Dependence among Incarcerated Offenders
Conclusions/Importance: Though associated with small effect sizes, our results support the notion that lifestyle/behavioral psychopathic traits represent a general risk factor for engaging in risky behavior associated with deleterious health consequences, including nicotine use. Our results hold implications for the development of treatment approaches, designed to reduce problematic levels of substance use among individuals scoring high on psychopathy.PMID:36683568 | DOI:10.1080/10826084.2023.2167495 (Source: Substance Use and Misuse)
