[Clinical characteristics of dappou herb use--disorder patients at the drug dependence clinic: a comparison with methamphetamine use-disorder patients].

Hide Abstract
Use of the so-called "dappou herb," a street drug typically produced by mixing herbs with synthetic cannabinoid (estimated to be the pharmacologically effective ingredient), has recently spread to young people in Japan who consider it a new recreational drug. It is not legally regulated because no illicit ingredients have been detected in the drug by conventional screening tests. It is easily obtained via the Internet or from street vendors. As the population abusing this drug has grown, medical problems such as psychosis, disturbances of consciousness caused by acute intoxication, and social problems such as traffic accidents while under the influence of the drug have been increasingly reported. However, few psychiatric symptoms associated with it have been identified, and little is known about the psychosocial features of abusers. The purpose of the present study was to examine the clinical and psychosocial features of outpatients with dappou herb use disorder.

[Efficacy of the treatment program for substance use disorder under the Medical Treatment and Supervision Act in Japan].

Hide Abstract
In Japan, the Medical Treatment and Supervision Act (MTSA) has been in effect since 2005 as a new system for treating mentally disordered offenders. This system was anticipated to aim at treating schizophrenia, while preparing no treatment programs for Substance use disorder (SUD). However, unexpectedly 30% of the inpatients, who a court judged to be treated in this system, have co-occurring SUD in addition to mental disorders. This is the reason why we have provided the inpatients under the MTSA with the treatment program for SUD (TPSUD). The purpose of the present study is to evaluate efficacies of the TPSUD provided in the MTS Award of the Center Hospital, National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry. Subjects were the 15 inpatients admitting to this ward, who participated in had the TPSUD due to co-occurrence of SUD. A self-reporting questionnaire, which consisted of the Self-Efficacy Scale for Drug Dependence (SESDD), and Stages of Change Readiness and Treatment Eagerness Scale (SOCRATES), and some clinical information, was administered before and after the program. Consequently, the subscale score of the SOCRATES, "recognition," was significantly elevated after the TPSUD in alcohol related problems, while the subscale score of the SESDD, "global change of self-efficacy for drug dependence," was significantly elevated in drug-related problems. Additionally, either rate of the subjects who started to the anti-alcohol drugs or who manifested to participate in self-help groups for SUD was also significantly elevated. Our findings suggest that the TPSUD may be effective to SUD which co-occur in mentally disordered offenders, and that this program may involve some clinical implication in forensic psychiatry practices under the MTSA.

Hide Abstract
Assessment of the degree of motivation for change in drug abusers is important in determining the optimal treatment modality for each patient. The Stages of Change Readiness and Treatment Eagerness Scale (SOCRATES) is a 19 item instrument designed by Miller and Tonigan to provide quantitative assessment of the motivation for change in substance abusers. The object of the present study is to examine the factor structure and validity of the Japanese version of SOCRATES-8D (version 8 for drug abusers).

Hide Abstract
Drug addiction in Japan is a field of clinical psychiatry that occasionally poses questions concerning legal status of the patients abusing illicit drugs. In other countries, continuing care perspective and harm reduction policy is gradually becoming the main current of the addiction psychiatry. There are several clinical projects in Japanese psychiatric hospitals and public health centers attempting to motivate and treat drug dependent patients through outpatient group therapy. SMARPP is one of such projects with promising results concerning the efficacy on treatment retention.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
