  • Access to substance use treatment among young adults who use prescription opioids non-medically. [Journal Article]
  • SASubst Abuse Treat Prev Policy 2016 Nov 29; 11(1):38

  • CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates significant disparities in access to treatment among young adults who report NMPO use. A history of overdose was shown to correlate with experiencing barriers to substance use treatment utilization. Interventions are needed to reduce drug-related discrimination in clinical settings and to provide mechanisms that link young adults (particularly with a history of overdose) to evidence-based treatment.
  • National doping prevention guidelines: Intent, efficacy and lessons learned - A 4-year evaluation. [Journal Article]
  • SASubst Abuse Treat Prev Policy 2016 Oct 10; 11(1):35
  • Wippert PM, Flieβer M
  • CONCLUSIONS: The integration of doping-prevention in elite sport schools as part of the NDPP was only partially successful. The results of the evaluation indicate that the introduction of the NDPP has contributed more to a change in the content of doping prevention activities than to a structural transformation in anti-doping education in elite sport schools. Moreover, while students who did receive additional education in the form of the NDPP"booster sessions" had significantly more knowledge about doping than students who did not receive such education, this difference was only small and may not translate to actual behavior.
  • Comparison of illegal drug use pattern in Taiwan and Korea from 2006 to 2014. [Journal Article]
  • SASubst Abuse Treat Prev Policy 2016 Sep 23; 11(1):34
  • Feng LY, Yu WJ, … Li JH
  • CONCLUSIONS: While the problem of methamphetamine still lingers, NPS have emerged as a new issue in both countries. However, the NPS pattern was different between Taiwan and Korea. Although the controlled NPS items in Taiwan were far less than those in Korea, the quantity of total NPS seizures, especially with ketamine, was much larger in Taiwan than in Korea. Different NPS pattern may also imply they were from different sources. Factors other than geographical proximity, such as drug policy and availability and accessibility to drugs, should be taken into account for the current status of illegal drug use in Korea and Taiwan.
  • Pharmacological Neuroenhancement: teachers' knowledge and attitudes-Results from a survey study among teachers in Germany. [Journal Article]
  • SASubst Abuse Treat Prev Policy 2016 Sep 20; 11(1):32
  • Franke AG, Lehmberg S, Soyka M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Teachers, as an integral part of the education of children and adolescents, often know about PN substances and mostly refuse their use being afraid about the risk of addiction. However, regarding effects as well as side effects of PN substances, teachers have very different opinions. Furthermore, they seem to underestimate the prevalence among their students and broach the topic infrequently. Teachers should be sensitized for high prevalence rates and should broach the topic of PN more frequently to their students to prevent potential misuse of PN substances.
