Floyd R.L., Sobell M., Velasquez M.M. et al.
American Journal of Preventive Medicine: 2007, 32(1), p. 1–10.
Foetal exposure to alcohol is a leading cause of birth defects and developmental disabilities.

Addiction: 2019, 115, p. 409–417.
Study set in Canada and the United States finds more than enough financial justification for expanding prevention of foetal alcohol spectrum disorders. But what does ‘expansion’ mean – universal prevention, or focusing resources on those most at risk?

Vanderplasschen W., Rapp R.C., De Maeyer J. et al.
Frontiers in Psychiatry: 2019, 10(186).
How does an intervention designed to enhance coordination and continuity of services, known as ‘case management’, compare to treatment as usual? Is there any evidence to suggest that it can directly or indirectly improve recovery outcomes?

HOT TOPIC 2020 HTM file

Ashton M., Davies N.
One of our hot topics offering background and analysis on important issues which sometimes generate heated debate. Whether to focus on mental health problems or substance use problem when the patient exhibits both is long-standing conundrum which still puzzles today’s treatment services. Arising with as many as three-quarters of the drug treatment caseload, deciding how to respond is a is a major issue.
