Use of opioids for chronic non-cancer pain is increasing, but the clinical epidemiology and standards of care for this practice are poorly defined. [...] Key Method We performed a secondary analysis of cross-sectional data from the Health Care for Communities (HCC) survey conducted in 1997-1998 (N=9279) to determine the association of psychiatric disorders and self-reported regular use of prescribed opioids within the past year. Regular prescription opioid use was reported by 282 (3%) respondents. In unadjusted…Expand
Association between mental health disorders, problem drug use, and regular prescription opioid use.
TLDR
Common mental health disorders and problem drug use are associated with initiation and use of prescribed opioids in the general population and remained significant predictors of opioid use in 2001. Expand
Epidemiology of regular prescribed opioid use: results from a national, population-based survey.
TLDR
Regular opioid users appear to have an overall lower level of health status and to have multiple, chronic physical health disorders, including arthritis and back pain, among users of prescription opioids. Expand
Pathways between nonmedical opioid use/dependence and psychiatric disorders: results from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions.
TLDR
A general vulnerability to nonmedical opioid use and major psychopathologies is supported, as well as evidence for a 'self-medication' model for dependence resulting from non medical opioid use with bipolar disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. Expand
Trends in Use of Opioids for Chronic Noncancer Pain Among Individuals With Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders: The TROUP Study
TLDR
Chronic use of prescription opioids for NCPC is much higher and growing faster in patients with MH and SUDs than in those without these diagnoses, and Clinicians should monitor the use of prescriptions in these vulnerable groups to determine whether opioids are substituting for or interfering with appropriate MH and substance abuse treatment. Expand
Physical pain, common psychiatric and substance use disorders, and the non-medical use of prescription analgesics in the United States.
TLDR
It is suggested that pain is an independent risk factor for non-disordered and disordered NMPAU, yet its effects are substantially modified by patterns of substance use. Expand
Correlates of Opioid Use Disorders among People with Severe Mental Illness in the United States
TLDR
Findings on OUD and OUD outcomes can help identify and understand individuals with SMI who could benefit from OUD prevention and intervention efforts. Expand
Opioid Analgesic Use Disorders Among Adolescents in the United States
TLDR
This study examined risk for opioid analgesic use disorders (OAUD) using the 2007 National Survey of Drug Use and Health and found that Hispanics were almost twice as likely as Whites to have OAUD than to have alcohol or marijuana use disorders. Expand
A Population Study of Prescribed Opioid-based Pain Reliever Use among Individuals with Mood and Anxiety Disorders in Canada.
TLDR
The findings suggest that mood and/or anxiety disorders were positively associated with prescribed opioid-based pain reliever use, and potential unmet healthcare needs among individuals with these conditions should be investigated. Expand
Prescription opioid misuse and mental health among young injection drug users
TLDR
PTSD is a significant risk factor for PO misuse for both men and women, and men with PTSD are in addition at increased risk for PO abuse and dependence, and these findings have implications for harm reduction and substance abuse prevention efforts. Expand
Patterns of prescription opioid utilization among adolescents and adults with co-morbid chronic pain and mental health diagnosis.
TLDR
In individuals with CNCP, having a MHD was a strong predictor of prescription opioid use, particularly chronic use. Expand

Use of opioid medications for chronic noncancer pain syndromes in primary care
TLDR
A broad spectrum of chronic noncancer pain disorders are treated with opioid medications in primary care settings, and a lifetime history of a substance use disorder and decreasing age were associated with prescription opioid abuse behavior. Expand
Patient characteristics associated with opioid versus nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug management of chronic low back pain.
TLDR
This work identified 2 groups of 100 patients each with chronic low back pain and identified 4 variables of age, depression, personality disorder, and history of substance abuse as being closely linked to the use of opioids for the treatment of back pain in preference to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs alone. Expand
College on Problems of Drug Dependence taskforce on prescription opioid non-medical use and abuse: position statement.
TLDR
The need to strike a balance between risk management strategies to prevent and deter prescription opioid abuse and the need for physicians and patients to have appropriate access to opioid pharmaceuticals for the treatment of pain is addressed. Expand
Patient Characteristics and Risks Factors for Development of Dependence on Hydrocodone and Oxycodone
TLDR
The substantial increase in problematic use of hydrocodone and oxycodone in an addiction treatment population and patients under the care of physicians who have other drug dependence diagnoses and medical complaints appear at risk of developing dependence on prescription opiate medications are documented. Expand
What factors affect physicians' decisions to prescribe opioids for chronic noncancer pain patients?
TLDR
Physicians' practice in prescribing of opioids appears to be influenced most by patients' nonverbal communications of pain, distress, and suffering. Expand
Substance use histories in patients seeking treatment for controlled-release oxycodone dependence.
TLDR
It is suggested that a history of substance abuse is common among patients abusing CR oxycodone, including individuals for whom CR oxy codone was initially legitimately prescribed for pain. Expand

TLDR
Results suggest that timely screening and treatment of mental health problems may prevent the development of substance-use disorders among those with mental disorders. Expand
Prescription opiate abuse in chronic pain patients: clinical criteria, incidence, and predictors.
TLDR
Prescription opiate abuse criteria for use in patients with chronic nonmalignant pain had good reliability and can be applied during normal clinic interactions and the percentage of chronic opiate users who become opiate abusers in pain treatment is within the range reported by others. Expand
A reassessment of trends in the medical use and abuse of opioid analgesics and implications for diversion control: 1997-2002.
TLDR
Increase in medical use and abuse of opioids is a general indicator of progress in providing pain relief and should be addressed by identifying the causes and sources of diversion, without interfering with legitimate medical practice and patient care. Expand
Characterizations of long-term oxycodone/acetaminophen prescriptions in veteran patients.
TLDR
In veteran patients who received long-term oxycodone/acetaminophen prescriptions, mean daily doses were typically modest and stable, likely reflecting a selection of patients with successful, long- term management. Expand
