The Relevance of Personality Disorders in Addiction Treatment  

Adriano Schimmenti*  

Comorbid substance addiction and mental illness is highly prevalent and often results in negative treatment outcomes. For example, it is quite common for patients with dual diagnosis to drop-outof treatment. Identifying the origins of this and other possible negative outcomes can be crucial for treating addictive disorders.

Ibogaine Effect on Cocaine Craving and Use in Dependent Patients - A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Pilot Study

Pedro Luis Prior*, Sergio Luiz Prior

Cocaine dependence is a prevalent mental disorder, with unfortunately no specific treatment at the moment. Ibogaine is an extract from an African root, with several evidence pointing to its success in treating several addictive disorders. There are very few human studies evaluating its efficacy in cocaine dependence.

Mini Review

Yoga as a Therapeutic Intervention for Carers of Addicts: A Missed Opportunity?

Anubha George*

In this review I make the case for yoga having a role as a therapeutic intervention for those affected by and /or caring for those with addiction problems. This is mostly informed by my experience of running yoga sessions for this cohort, and from the benefits that have been anecdotally reported to me.

Mini Review  

Legalization of Cannabis Recreational Use: Practical and Clinical Effects on Patients and Societies

Pedro Luis Prior*

Cannabis sativa and derived substances from this hallucinogen have been a part of human cultures for centuries, being used at initiation rituals and religious ceremonies. In the last two centuries there has been change in its use, through several tries in making it an over the counter medicine (in the 19th century, for treatment of coughs and respiratory illnesses), and as a recreational drug in the 20th and 21st century.

Provision of Treatment Services for Gambling Addicts in England: The Present and the Future

Sanju George*

In this mini review I will look at the current treatment provision for gambling addiction in England and its funding streams and commissioning mechanisms, and then suggest a model that, in my view,can be a better way forward. I will then briefly discuss some strategic changes that have to take place if this new proposed model is to work well.

Sexual Addiction and Adult Attachment in Incarcerated Sexual Offenders and a Matched Community Comparison Group

Liam E. Marshall*, Stephanie Humphries, Jennifer Roters  and Alison Davis

This paper examines sexual addiction and adult attachment in incarcerated sexual offenders and a socioeconomically matched community comparison group. Previous research has shown sexual offenders to have greater problems with sexual addiction and be more likely to report an insecure attachment style than matched community comparisons.
