Is Waterpipe Smoking a Gateway to Cigarette Smoking among Youth?

Introduction: Whether waterpipe smoking is a gateway to cigarette smoking among youth is not known yet. The objective of our study was to assess the profile of dual and single smokers of both, waterpipe and cigarette, and evaluate whether a given type of smoking may be a gateway for the other. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out, using a proportionate cluster sample of Lebanese students in the public and private universities. The questionnaire used in this study was composed of several parts, including the sociodemographic part and a detailed active and passive smoking history, in addition to items of the tobacco dependence scales for both waterpipe and cigarette.

Compulsive Buying: Psychopathological Condition, Coping Strategy or Sociocultural Phenomenon? A Review

Objectives: Compulsive buying (CB) has been conceptualized variously as an obsessive-compulsive, impulse control, or addictive spectrum condition; as a coping strategy for negative mood; and as a mere phenomenon of materialistic societies. The objective of this review was to evaluate the published literature on CB from a biopsychosocial perspective, for support for its classification among these options. Methods: A search of the psychiatric literature was conducted, using PubMed, ProQuest and EBSCOHOST, for all articles containing the terms “compulsive buying” or “compulsive shopping” and published in English up to February 2015. Articles were also obtained from secondary search engines like Google Scholar, and the citation lists of sourced articles were also searched for additional references.

Managing Opioid Use Disorder During and After Acute Hospitalization: A Case-Based Review Clarifying Methadone Regulation for Acute Care Settings

Objective: Treatment with an opioid agonist such as methadone or buprenorphine is the standard of care for opioid use disorder. Persons with opioid use disorder are frequently hospitalized, and may be undertreated due to provider misinformation regarding the legality of prescribing methadone for inpatients. Using a casebased review, this article aims to describe effective management of active opioid withdrawal and ongoing opioid use disorder using methadone or buprenorphine among acutely ill, hospitalized patients. Methods: We reviewed pertinent medical and legal literature and consulted with national legal experts regarding methadone for opioid withdrawal and opioid maintenance therapy in hospitalized, general medical and surgical patients, and describe a real-life example of successful implementation of inpatient methadone for these purposes.

Leadership Styles of Oxford House Officers

Oxford House recovery homes are unusual compared to most recovery homes in that they function entirely without the use of staff; instead members are elected to officer positions. The aim of this study was to perform preliminary analysis of the types of leadership styles utilized by members of oxford house. Twentynine house residents of five Oxford Houses were asked to rate their own leadership styles using the leader behavior description questionnaire and the multifactor leader questionnaire. Results showed that participants were more likely to use person-oriented behaviors above task-oriented actions. Transformational leadership was associated with higher outcomes than Transactional leadership. Implications for future research are discussed.

Buprenorphine Prescribing Availability in a Sample of Ohio Specialty Treatment Organizations

Buprenorphine, a medication for treating opioid dependence, is underutilized in specialty addiction treatment organizations. Only physicians who have obtained a buprenorphine prescribing license or “waiver” may administer this medication. A limited number of physicians are pursuing this waiver, and a concern in the substance use disorder treatment field is that the shortage of prescribers could be contributing to the low use of buprenorphine at specialty addiction treatment centers. The objective of this study is to assess Ohio specialty treatment organizations’ access to buprenorphine prescribers and the barriers they encounter when seeking new physician prescribing capacity.
