A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic. (Morse & Flavin for the Joint Commission of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and the American Society of Addiction Medicine to Study the Definition and Criteria for the Diagnosis of Alcoholism: in JAMA 1992;268:1012-4)
Substance Withdrawal Syndrome
Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome
A clear, colorless liquid rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body. It has bactericidal activity and is used often as a topical disinfectant. It is widely used as a solvent and preservative in pharmaceutical preparations as well as serving as the primary ingredient in ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.
Tobacco Use Disorder
The observable, measurable, and often pathological activity of an organism that portrays its inability to overcome a habit resulting in an insatiable craving for a substance or for performing certain acts. The addictive behavior includes the emotional and physical overdependence on the object of habit in increasing amount or frequency.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders
An umbrella term used to describe a pattern of disabilities and abnormalities that result from fetal exposure to ETHANOL during pregnancy. It encompasses a phenotypic range that can vary greatly between individuals, but reliably includes one or more of the following: characteristic facial dysmorphism, FETAL GROWTH RETARDATION, central nervous system abnormalities, cognitive and/or behavioral dysfunction, BIRTH DEFECTS. The level of maternal alcohol consumption does not necessarily correlate directly with disease severity.
A subclass of enzymes which includes all dehydrogenases acting on primary and secondary alcohols as well as hemiacetals. They are further classified according to the acceptor which can be NAD+ or NADP+ (subclass 1.1.1), cytochrome (1.1.2), oxygen (1.1.3), quinone (1.1.5), or another acceptor (1.1.99).
Central Nervous System Depressants
Drugs that bind to and activate nicotinic cholinergic receptors (RECEPTORS, NICOTINIC). Nicotinic agonists act at postganglionic nicotinic receptors, at neuroeffector junctions in the peripheral nervous system, and at nicotinic receptors in the central nervous system. Agents that function as neuromuscular depolarizing blocking agents are included here because they activate nicotinic receptors, although they are used clinically to block nicotinic transmission.
Usually high-molecular-weight, straight-chain primary alcohols, but can also range from as few as 4 carbons, derived from natural fats and oils, including lauryl, stearyl, oleyl, and linoleyl alcohols. They are used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, detergents, plastics, and lube oils and in textile manufacture. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 5th ed)
Substance Abuse Detection
Alcohol-Induced Disorders, Nervous System
Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium
An acute organic mental disorder induced by cessation or reduction in chronic alcohol consumption. Clinical characteristics include CONFUSION; DELUSIONS; vivid HALLUCINATIONS; TREMOR; agitation; insomnia; and signs of autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., elevated blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, and diaphoresis). This condition may occasionally be fatal. It was formerly called delirium tremens. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1175)
An alkaloid ester extracted from the leaves of plants including coca. It is a local anesthetic and vasoconstrictor and is clinically used for that purpose, particularly in the eye, ear, nose, and throat. It also has powerful central nervous system effects similar to the amphetamines and is a drug of abuse. Cocaine, like amphetamines, acts by multiple mechanisms on brain catecholaminergic neurons; the mechanism of its reinforcing effects is thought to involve inhibition of dopamine uptake.
Substance Abuse Treatment Centers
Derivative of noroxymorphone that is the N-cyclopropylmethyl congener of NALOXONE. It is a narcotic antagonist that is effective orally, longer lasting and more potent than naloxone, and has been proposed for the treatment of heroin addiction. The FDA has approved naltrexone for the treatment of alcohol dependence.
Liver Diseases, Alcoholic
Carbon monoxide (CO). A poisonous colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. It combines with hemoglobin to form carboxyhemoglobin, which has no oxygen carrying capacity. The resultant oxygen deprivation causes headache, dizziness, decreased pulse and respiratory rates, unconsciousness, and death. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
Opiate Substitution Treatment
Dopamine Uptake Inhibitors
A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.
Maleness or femaleness as a constituent element or influence contributing to the production of a result. It may be applicable to the cause or effect of a circumstance. It is used with human or animal concepts but should be differentiated from SEX CHARACTERISTICS, anatomical or physiological manifestations of sex, and from SEX DISTRIBUTION, the number of males and females in given circumstances.
Analysis of Variance
A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.

Identifying Key Predictors of Recidivism among Offenders Attending a Batterer Intervention Program: A Survival Analysis
Strategies to reduce intimate partner violence against women (IPVAW) can be targeted at different levels. Batterer intervention programs (BIPs) are among the main treatment approaches for IPVAW offenders. The most common outcome used in the evaluation of BIP effectiveness is recidivism. Efforts to increase BIP effectiveness in reducing recidivism should focus on key predictive variables of this outcome. The aim of this study was to identify key predictors of official recidivism from a large set of variables drawn from a sample of IPVAW offenders court-mandated to a community-based BIP (N = 393), with a follow-up period of between 0 and 69 months. To this end, a survival analysis was conducted using four sets of variables: individual-level, relational- and contextual-level, violence-related, and intervention process-related variables. To include all variables in the analysis simultaneously, a Cox regression model was estimated with the adaptive least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (ALASSO).
Testing the Impact of Batterer Intervention Programs and Court Monitoring in the Bronx [New York City, New York], 2002-2004
Before the defense attorney and defendant left the courtroom, the resource coordinator or research associate gave each a sheet, available in English or Spanish, summarizing the offenders responsibilities. After receiving other paperwork from the court, offenders assigned to the two groups required to attend a batterer program proceeded to the defendant monitors office. One of the defendant monitors conducted a brief intake interview and offenders assigned to attend a batterer program (groups 1 and 2) were mandated to either the Domestic Violence Accountability Program (DVAP) run by Safe Horizon or the Mens Choices Program run by the Fordham Tremont Community Mental Health Center. The research associate also created a research case file including the date of the first scheduled appearance in DVC, case and offender identifiers, charge information, disposition, sentencing date, experimental assignment, victim name, and victim contact information. The offenders were tracked for at least twelve ...
Cellphone Technology Developed to Detect HIV
Early detection of HIV is critical to prevent disease progression and transmission, and it requires long-term monitoring, which can be a burden for families that have to travel to reach a clinic or hospital, said senior author Hadi --Shafiee, PhD, a principal investigator in the Division of Engineering in Medicine and Renal Division of Medicine at the Brigham. This rapid and low-cost cellphone system represents a new method for detecting acute infection, which would reduce the risk of virus transmission and could also be used to detect early treatment failure ...
An experimental clinical trial was used to test the expectation that culturally-focused counseling would improve batterer program outcomes. A total of 503 men, including all African American men mandated by the domestic violence court in Pittsburgh to batterer counseling between November 2001 and May 2003, were randomly assigned to one of three counseling options: culturally-focused counseling in an all African American group, conventional counseling in an all African American group, and conventional counseling in a racially mixed group. A staff member from the batterer program was stationed in the court to receive men ordered to batterer counseling and set an appointment for program intake within a week. The staff directed African American men to one of two sites in the citys predominantly African American neighborhoods. At the program intake, all the men completed a structured background questionnaire, the Short Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (SMAST), the Racial Identity Scale (RAIS) ...
Profile of a Batterer
Although both men and women can be abusers, approximately 97% of all batterers are men. Abuse is often a learned behavior. The person who uses any form of violence to control or manipulate a partner often has low self-esteem, may refuse to accept responsibility for the violence, and may believe the violence is justified. Often the batterer will try to excuse the behavior or blame the victim for causing it. The tendency to use abuse as a control tactic is aggravated by the use of drugs and alcohol. Overcoming a substance abuse problem, however, does not usually end the abusive behavior. Batterers can overcome abusive behavior through the appropriate treatment and counseling, separate from their substance abuse treatment ...
Family physicians in this qualitative study usually learned of male patients perpetrating IPV through disclosures by the female partners also under their care. A number of physicians did however, report that their male patients self-disclosed the perpetration of abuse. Physicians reported feeling unprepared to deal with male patients who perpetrate IPV, with specific concerns about confidentiality issues, specifically when the victim discloses the abuse, and about a lack of knowledge about where to refer abusers. This lack of training is demonstrated by the wide variation in referral practices, the lack of knowledge about batterer intervention programs, and the provision of potentially inappropriate and possibly even unsafe responses. When interacting with perpetrators of IPV, physicians reported both anger toward perpetrators and fear for their own safety.. While the majority of physicians learned that their male patients had perpetrated IPV through disclosure by the victim, one third of the ...

NCJRS Abstract - National Criminal Justice Reference Service
The review found that within the existing policy framework of mandated interventions for male perpetrators of domestic violence, there is a lack of political support for a serious effort to reframe treatment for such offenders so that implementing an evidence-based approach is feasible. Although the U.S. Department of Justices National Institute of Justice has funded a number of batterer intervention program evaluations, the findings are prevented from being implemented by jurisdictional restrictions against using evaluation findings and other pertinent data in developing program innovations. Criminal justice agencies formulate and implement policies that regulate what structure, duration, and form of intervention is required as a condition of probation for persons found guilty of domestic assault, thereby determining which form of intervention is deemed acceptable by the courts. Consequently, program funding is only available for those programs that conform to these policies. The current best ...

And you and I both know, that if you cant get those cravings handled, well…whats the point of even trying? Its brutal!.

Known as the master hormone for regulating body weight, it is produced by the bodys fat cells.. Leptin resistance can occur when your body has too much adipose tissue-a nice way for saying if youre overweight, theres a good chance that your leptin levels are out of whack..
