Behaviors associated with the ingesting of alcoholic beverages, including social drinking.
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.

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.
A synthetic opioid that is used as the hydrochloride. It is an opioid analgesic that is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. It has actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1082-3)

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.
The application of modern theories of learning and conditioning in the treatment of behavior disorders.
Health facilities providing therapy and/or rehabilitation for substance-dependent individuals. Methadone distribution centers are included.
Disorders related or resulting from abuse or mis-use of opioids.
Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.

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)
Medical treatment for opioid dependence using a substitute opiate such as METHADONE or BUPRENORPHINE.
Drugs that block the transport of DOPAMINE into axon terminals or into storage vesicles within terminals. Most of the ADRENERGIC UPTAKE INHIBITORS also inhibit dopamine uptake.
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.
Strong dependence, both physiological and emotional, upon morphine.

TY - JOUR. T1 - An Expanded Approach to Batterer Intervention Programs Incorporating Neuroscience Research. AU - Siegel, Judith P.. PY - 2013/10/1. Y1 - 2013/10/1. N2 - Batterer Intervention Programs have been critiqued for failing to incorporate treatment strategies that are supported by neurobiology research. This article reviews findings that have informed the treatment of disorders that are strongly represented among perpetrators of intimate violence, such as addiction, posttraumatic stress disorder, mood, anxiety, and personality disorders. The article argues for an expanded perspective that recognizes the relationships among childhood trauma, emotional regulation impairment, and intimate partner violence. Recommendations and ways to draw on emerging knowledge to invigorate existing programs are provided..

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 ...
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) ...
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 ...

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 ...

But the problem is greater than just having a second cellphone that you dont keep out of sight.

There are many reasons for a person to have sugar cravings. These reasons can range from an underlying medical condition to a hormonal imbalance. Women often have sugar cravings when it is time for their period or during pregnancy. Diabetes will also make you crave sweets when your sugar level is low. That is why it is important to see a doctor if you have sudden, unexplainable sugar cravings. Stress can also be a cause of sugar cravings. Some people are called stress eaters because they turn to food (often sweets) when they endure stress in their lives, and food provides a feeling of comfort.. The most common non-medical or physiological reason for sugar cravings is poor eating habits. Although there are supplements to assist in sugar cravings, a healthy diet is the best partner for one of the supplements below:. ...
