PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Buprenorphine and methadone, when used as maintenance therapy in opioid use disorder (OUD), can significantly reduce the risk of death after an opioid overdose. Despite the many benefits, medication for OUD (MOUD) remains controversial and underutilized. The aim of this study was to (a) identify studies that explicate the lived experience of MOUD, (b) conduct a methodologically sound critical quality assessment, (c) conduct a metasynthesis of identified qualitative studies, and (d) analyze the results through the lenses of critical social justice, feminist standpoint, and social theories to inform a more culturally responsive, effective, and holistic approach to treatment to increase the utilization of and receptivity to MOUD in the treatment of OUDs...

AIM: The aim of this study was to examine the prediction power of personal and sociodemographic factors of patients and their families to treatment outcomes. METHODS: A descriptive, correlational, cross-sectional design was used...

BACKGROUND: Changes in patterns of drug use and population needs necessitate the adoption of new technologies. Despite high failure rates in adopting new technologies acquired in training, little is known about the process that can support successful change. This study explores the impact that staff and service characteristics have on the process of training adoption in Irish opiate substitution therapy services, with a specific focus on the concept of organizational readiness to change...

Tobacco use is a leading cause of cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory disease, and preventable death in the United States. The brains of individuals with nicotine dependence are characterized by damaged mesolimbic pathways in the medial portion of the limbic and frontal lobes, creating positive reinforcing mechanisms. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) targets this neuroadaptation to improve smokers' nicotine-related outcomes, such as craving and smoking behavior, by depolarizing or hyperpolarizing the neurons of the brain...

This article aimed to describe the perspective of people who make harmful use of illicit substances on the contributions of risk and protective factors to the development of problems related to drug use. One hundred eleven participants were recruited from a health service for drug users in a city in the interior of the state of São Paulo through posters with information, distribution of brochures, and snowball sampling technique. The sample consists of 51.9% men and 48.1% women, with 81.3% single and 10...

Emergency departments (EDs) serve as the front line when patients encounter the hospital system. Limited data are available of patients' alcohol habits collected during Danish ED visits, and no studies have, to our knowledge, examined frontline staffs' (registered nurses and medical secretaries) acceptability to deliver anonymous alcohol surveys to patients. We aimed at examining the proportion of survey respondents and the prevalence of patients' alcohol habits and also exploring frontline staff acceptability of the distribution of an anonymous survey regarding patients' alcohol habits in EDs...

Support within the nursing community for those coping with substance misuse has been lacking for over a hundred years. A review of the history of substance use disorders in nursing reveals that nurses still encounter similar risks, stigma, and punishments today. Kristin, a nurse for over 30 years, tells her story of trials, tribulations, and triumphs with substance use. She shares how having to face early recovery on her own sparked the development of the Wisconsin Peer Alliance for Nurses (WisPAN). WisPAN offers a community for nurses in recovery to provide peer support to those taking their first steps on the journey toward recovery...

Nonmedical prescription stimulants are used to reduce symptoms of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity in children and adults with attention-deficit hyperactivity/disorder. They are Schedule II controlled substances because of their high potential for dependence, and individuals who misuse them without a valid prescription are subject to criminal charges. Stimulant medications are also associated with common side effects (e.g., insomnia) as well as more serious but less common side effects (e.g., arrhythmias)...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Xiang Zhao, Gareth Davey, Xiangxing Wan
Tobacco smoking and depression are important contributors to the burden of disease in China, and their onset typically occurs in adolescence. However, there is no consensus on the nature and underlying mechanisms of their interplay, and related studies on Chinese adolescents and ethnic minorities are limited. This study tested the mediation role of depression in the link between smoking intention and behavior in relation to sex. A secondary analysis was conducted on data from a survey of 1,322 Chinese Dai middle school students aged 15-19 years (M = 17...

PURPOSE: Although gender differences in adolescent substance use are complex and substance use accompanies mental health problems, most previous studies have focused on gender-specific association between single substance use and mental health. This study aimed to investigate gender-specific substance use patterns and to examine their association with mental health characteristics.

BACKGROUND: Cannabis has been cited as the most frequently used drug in this country, and intolerance toward substance use is a recognized concern in nursing. The twofold purpose of this descriptive study was to determine (a) what, if any, were the differences between nurses' attitudes of patient cannabis use in states in which cannabis was legal versus illegal and (b) how do nurses working in diverse care settings differ in their attitudes regarding patient cannabis use. METHODS: A sample of 809 registered nurses from across the United States were recruited to take part in this study in October 2018...

BACKGROUND: Addiction to opioids, a well-known public health crisis, is now more prevalent in pregnant women as evidenced by the parallel rise with pregnant women in the epidemic with the general population. Evidence is now available that substantiates the need for global awareness to increase efforts in the treatment of pregnant women with opioid use disorder (OUD) as this vulnerable population lacks equal access to opioid abuse treatment across the United States. AIM: The overarching aim and purpose of this quality improvement project was to increase access to treatment for pregnant women with OUD who are currently underserved in a community located in Florida...

Tianeptine is an atypical antidepressant that is not approved for use in the United States and has a significant potential for abuse. In recent years, illicit use and misuse of tianeptine have become increasingly common. Symptoms caused by illicit use and withdrawal from tianeptine have become an emerging public health concern. Nurses should be aware of serious or even fatal opiate-like intoxication or withdrawal symptoms, which may present in the absence of a positive urine drug screen or in cases where withdrawal does not follow expected patterns...
