One of the alcohol-related goals in Japan's health promotion campaign called Health Japan 21 (secondary term) is to reduce the number of high-risk drinkers (20 years old or above) who consume 40g or more pure alcohol/day in men and 20g or more in women by year 2022. To achieve this goal, a further expansion of screening and brief intervention (SBI) in the medical setting is essential. In this research, realistic and cost-effective SBI scenarios in Japan were investigated based on international systematic review and clinicians' opinions from a semi-structured interview...

OBJECTIVE: Assessing the degree of problems related to drug abuse is important in each treatment setting. The Drug Abuse Screening Test-20 (DAST-20) is a brief, simple 20-item instrument to measure the degree of problems related to drug use. The objective of the present study is to examine the reliability and validity of the Japanese version of the DAST-20. METHODS: We translated the DAST-20 into Japanese using back translation. The anonymous self-administered questionnaire was completed by 310 drug users at the Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Centers (DARC group, n = 113) and at HIV/AIDS regional hospitals (HIV group, n = 197) in Japan...

BACKGROUND: Relatively few hospitals can treat substance use disorder in Japan and the options for treatment are limited. Previous studies in the West have shown the effectiveness of brief intervention for substance use disorder. However, such treatment has not been sufficiently implemented in Japan. For this study, we developed brief intervention tools for substance use disorder, and conducted a pilot study to evaluate the efficacy of treatment. METHODS: Participants in this study were recruited from those admitted for substance use disorder in the addiction treatment unit of Tokyo Metropolitan Matsuzawa Hospital, and the recruitment period was from October 2013 through March 2014...

The purpose of this study was to develop an evaluation method for animal-assisted intervention (AAI) programs involving Mood Check List-Short form.2 (MCL-S.2) and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) for psychiatric daycare of Japanese alcohol. dependents. A total of 36 alcohol dependents completed the study and questionnaires assessing their state. A single session of AAI reduced both subjective and physiological measures of state anxiety (A-State); and this program induced a significant reduction in the anxiety after an AAI program session with the dogs and cats involved in the intervention (p = 0...

REVIEW
Shin Kato
If the conditions including normal-dose dependence in which withdrawal signs are observed in the absence of definite psychic dependence are classified as dependence, this classification should be regarded as inappropriate extension of the concept of drug dependence. These conditions should be diagnosed as 'withdrawal' as specified by the DSM-5 or ICD-10. Advancements of research have clarified that an increased number of drugs cause withdrawal signs. Some Japanese researchers use the concept of 'withdrawal signs of psychic dependence...

Along with the development of interferon and therapeutic medication, the incidence of viral hepatitis constituting the largest part of liver disease decreased, and the main target in the field of liver disease is now shifting from viral hepatitis to alcoholic liver disease (ALD) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) as metabolic liver disease. Although these diseases tend.to. be gathered as non-viral liver disease because the similar specific liver tissue, the natural history and etiology are considerably different between them...

Recent epidemiological studies showed that alcoholic liver cirrhosis (ALC) and alcohol-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) continue to increase despite a gradual decrease in alcohol intake, indicating that there are other risk factors for the development of ALC and alcohol-related HCC. A nationwide survey of liver cirrhosis (LC) was undertaken by asking major hospitals in Japan to provide information on the number of patients with LC admitted in 2012 along with information related to etiology including alcohol history and other relevant demographics...

The purpose of the present study was to develop a therapeutic community (TC) model in the Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Center (DARC), the rehabilitation facility group managed by recovered drug users in Japan, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the model. The TC model is a drug-free self-help program that is significant for its use of the peer community to facilitate social and psychological change in individuals. Although the TC model has been developed around the world in a variety of settings, its use in Japan is not well known...

The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has focused on enhancing knowldge about the association between alcohol consumption and health, such as early detection of alcohol abuse, the appropriate actions to be taken after detection, and prevention of teenage drinking. They believe that it is necessary to develop and improve the methods for early detection of alcohol-related problems in an easy and effective way. Given this context, we hypothsized that simultaneous determination of osteocalcin (OC) and undercarboxylated osteocalcin ucOC), bone metabolic markers, would facilitate research on the effects of alcohol drinking...

Addiction is described as a chronic neurological disorder associated with plasticity in the mesolimbic system. Recently, it has been suggested that neuroinflammation plays an important role in the induction of neuronal plasticity and the formation of pathogenesis in chronic neurological disorders. Therefore, we examined the role of CC-chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2), a proinflammatory chemokine, in the development of psychic dependence on methamphetamine. In mice treated with methamphetamine, CCL2 mRNA was significantly increased in prefrontal cortex and nucleus accumbens...

We experienced a case showing various psychotic symptoms following cessation of alcohol consumption. The symptoms included depressive state, delusion, confusion, psychomotor excitement and delirium, all of which disappeared in about two months. At first, we regarded all the symptoms as alcoholic hallucinosis, by a clinical standpoint, in spite of no auditory hallucination in this case. However, taking the overall clinical course into consideration, withdrawal syndrome could have been affected by some factors...

Interleukin (IL)-1 β is a cytokine that is upregulated by the pro-inflammatory bacterial endotoxin lipopolysaccharide. This study examined the effect of ethanol on IL-1 β-mediated suppression of phenylephrine-induced contractility and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression in the rat superior mesenteric artery (SMA). IL-1 β suppressed the phenylephrine-induced contractile response, and this effect was inhibited by ethanol. The IL-1 β-mediated effects were also blocked by cycloheximide, an inhibitor of protein synthesis, as well as AMT and 1400W, which are iNOS inhibitors, and PTIO, an NO scavenger...

A survey of 21,493 patients who visited our Health Check-up Center during the 6-year period from 2005 to 2010 was conducted for the endpoints of drinking situation and various lifestyle-related diseases. Males accounted for 57.2% (mean age: 53.2 ± 11.4) and females accounted for 42.8% (mean age: 52.5 ± 11.4) of patients surveyed. Patients with no drinking habit accounted for 24.8% and 62.9% of males and females, respectively, and a large gender difference was seen in drinking frequency. When examined by age group, drinking frequency was found to increase with age in males, but gradually decreased with age in females...

Nicotine dependence and its neural mechanisms have been well documented by pharmacological, behavioral and neuroscience studies. In this review, we introduce recent new findings in this theme, particularly on the role of nicotine -associated stimuli as non-pharmacological factors affecting maintaining/reinstating nicotine seeking. By using the techniques of drug self-administration and conditioned place preference, nicotine's specific property of forming seeking/taking behavior is well characterized, and the mechanisms of seeking/taking could be partly explained by discrete and/or contextual conditioned stimuli (dCS and cCS)...

REVIEW

Vascular function is regulated by a balance of vasoconstriction and vasorelaxation. Disorder in this balance due to alcohol consumption causes various clinical conditions. In this review, we discuss the effects of acute and chronic ethanol consumption on vascular responses, including vasoconstriction, endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation, and nerve-mediated vasorelaxation. Acute ethanol administration induces vasoconstriction in ethanol-naive animals in vitro. Furthermore, ethanol can both potentiate and suppress agonist-induced Ca(2+)-dependent vasoconstriction...

Coping skills training (CST) and cue exposure treatment (CET) have yielded favorable outcomes when used to treat alcoholics. We conducted 6-week inpatient programs that consisted of 9 CST group sessions (n = 117) during 2005-2009 and 9 CST group sessions plus 4 CET group sessions (n = 49) during 2009-2011 and subsequent 1-year letter therapy for Japanese alcoholic men who had relapsed and been readmitted after standard cognitive-behavioral inpatient therapy. When patients received a letter containing encouraging words every 2 weeks, they were asked to reread their CST and CET records and to respond to the letter by marking drinking days on a calendar and naming the skills on a list of the 9 CST themes and CET that were useful for maintaining abstinence during that 2-week period...
