The impact of childhood emotional abuse on violence among people who inject drugs.
TLDR
High rates of childhood emotional abuse and subsequent adult violence among this sample of IDU found highlight the need for policies and programmes that address both child abuse and historical emotional abuse among adult IDU.
The long-term effects of childhood maltreatment experiences on subsequent illicit drug use and drug-related problems in young adulthood.
TLDR
The present findings suggest that childhood maltreatment is related to subsequent illicit drug use and drug-related problems in young adulthood and that some of these associations differ by gender.
Adverse childhood experiences and illicit drug use in adolescents: Findings from a national addictions treatment population in Singapore
TLDR
Examination of the prevalence of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) among adolescents in a national addiction treatment sample showed that exposure to household dysfunction was associated with drug-related substance use disorders (SUDs) and exposure to multiple ACEs wasassociated with SUDs, earlier drug initiation, and more severe drug use.
Stressful childhood experiences and health outcomes in sexual minority populations: a systematic review
TLDR
LGBT populations showed high prevalence of SCE and outcomes related to SCE ranged from psychiatric symptoms and disorders to physical ailments, and future research should target culturally different LGBT population in the rest of the world.
Health-Related Outcomes of Adverse Childhood Experiences in Texas, 2002
TLDR
People with childhood adversities are more likely to be socioeconomically disadvantaged, less educated, and have difficulties maintaining employment in adulthood compared to people with no adversities.
Correlates of adverse childhood experiences among adults with severe mood disorders.
TLDR
Increased exposure to childhood adverse experiences was related to high-risk behaviors, diagnosis of a substance use disorder, exposure to trauma in adulthood, psychiatric problems, medical service utilization, and homelessness.
The interrelatedness of multiple forms of childhood abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction.
TLDR
The study provides strong evidence that ACEs are interrelated rather than occurring independently, and collecting information about exposure to other ACEs is advisable for studies that focus on the consequences of a specific ACE.
Adverse childhood exposures and reported child health at age 12.
TLDR
A comprehensive assessment of children's health should include a careful history of their past exposure to adverse conditions and maltreatment, and interventions aimed at reducing these exposures may result in better child health.
Adverse childhood experiences of referred children exposed to intimate partner violence: consequences for their wellbeing.
TLDR
The results of this study may imply that in this high-risk clinical sample of children exposed to IPV, additional adverse experiences have a limited relationship to psychological outcomes.
Three Types of Adverse Childhood Experiences, and Alcohol and Drug Dependence Among Adults: An Investigation Using Population-Based Data

Childhood abuse, household dysfunction, and the risk of attempted suicide throughout the life span: findings from the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study.
TLDR
A powerful graded relationship exists between adverse childhood experiences and risk of attempted suicide throughout the life span, and alcoholism, depressed affect, and illicit drug use, which are strongly associated with such experiences, appear to partially mediate this relationship.
Unintended pregnancy among adult women exposed to abuse or household dysfunction during their childhood.
TLDR
There may be a dose-response association between exposure to childhood abuse or household dysfunction and unintended first pregnancy in adulthood, and additional research is needed to fully understand the causal pathway of this association.
Self-reported childhood sexual and physical abuse and adult HIV-risk behaviors and heavy drinking.
TLDR
Efforts to prevent or remediate adult health- risk behaviors should consider the possibility of a history of childhood abuse, as one third to one half of those reporting HIV-risk behaviors or heavy drinking in a general-population survey also reported childhood abuse.
Adverse Childhood Experiences and Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Men and Women: A Retrospective Study
TLDR
A strong graded relationship between ACEs and a self-reported history of STDs among adults is observed and may have long-term consequences on at-risk behaviors that lead to an increased risk of sexually transmitted diseases during adulthood.

TLDR
The risk of heavy drinking, self-reported alcoholism, and marrying an alcoholic were increased twofold to fourfold by the presence of multiple ACEs, regardless of parental alcoholism.

Childhood trauma as a correlate of lifetime opiate use in psychiatric patients.
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between childhood abuse and opiate use in particular among 763 consecutively admitted psychiatric inpatients found opiate users were 2.7 times more likely to have a history of childhood sexual and/or physical abuse than nonopiate users.
