  • Effect of Narcotic Prescription Limiting Legislation on Opioid Utilization Following Lumbar Spine Surgery. [Journal Article]
  • SJSpine J 2018 Sep 14
  • Reid DBC, Shah KN, … Daniels AH
  • CONCLUSIONS: The institution of mandatory statewide opioid prescription limits has resulted in a significant reduction in initial and 30-day opioid prescriptions following lumbar spine surgery. Decreased opioid utilization was observed in all patients, regardless of preoperative opioid tolerance or procedure performed. No significant change in postoperative ED visits or unplanned hospital readmissions was seen following implementation of the legislation. This investigation provides preliminary evidence that narcotic limiting legislation may be effective in decreasing opioid prescriptions after lumbar spine surgery for both opioid-naïve and opioid-tolerant patients.
  • High prevalence of shoplifting in patients with eating disorders. [Journal Article]
  • EWEat Weight Disord 2018 Sep 16
  • Miyawaki D, Goto A, … Inoue K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Shoplifting is common in ED patients and precedes ED onset in most patients with a shoplifting history, although the causal relationship between shoplifting and EDs remains inconclusive. Shoplifting may be associated with impulsive behaviors (e.g., alcohol and illicit drug use), depression, and low self-esteem, but not with ED severity. Future research should focus on the unrecognized role of shoplifting as a marker to identify patients at risk of impulsive behaviors and consider treatment options.
  • Safety and psychological impact of sailing adventure therapy among Veterans with substance use disorders. [Journal Article]
  • CTComplement Ther Med 2018; 40:42-47
  • Marchand WR, Klinger W, … Sheppard S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preliminary evidence suggests that SAT is physically safe and not associated with increased anxiety or negative affect. Participant's perceptions of the experience were positive. Preliminary outcome measures suggest associations between participation in SAT and increased psychological flexibility as well as successful completion of a residential SUD treatment program. Further research is indicated to determine whether SAT may be developed as an effective complementary intervention for Veterans with SUDs.
