Editor's Note The journal is delighted to introduce a new feature in this issue that focuses on the complex and multifaceted issue of managing pain and related symptoms while responsibly attending to minimizing substance abuse. How should the seemingly disparate disciplines of drug abuse and symptom control interact? Should these be two separate fields or should practitioners/investigators in one also be qualified in the other? Is that even feasible? We are honored to have two leading, academically based clinician scientists coordinating this new feature...

Current "official" nosology (e.g. DSM IV) is largely limited to physical manifestations of addiction that can be objectively observed and are suited to the maintaining of an "atheoretical" perspective. However, addicted subjects display additional psychiatric symptoms that affect their well-being and social functioning and, in accordance with DSM IV, are typically relegated to the domain of psychiatric "comorbidity." We contend that the relationship of these psychiatric symptoms with addiction is very close, as demonstrated by the high frequency of association observed...

A survey of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) throughout Russia was undertaken to understand the range of ECT usage and knowledge. A survey form was distributed by mail to 1648 Russian doctors and institutions expected to deal with ECT. A total of 114 replies were received. They indicated that ECT is available to 22.4% of the country's population. In available regions, ECT is given to 1.43% of hospital admissions and 0.54 per 10,000 persons per year. ECT is used in Russian psychiatry, neurology, and addictionology...

Presented here is a model for the diagnosis and treatment of cocaine dependence. Intrinsic in the understanding of this model is the use of the disease concept of chemical dependence. Within the construct of this model we regard cocaine dependence or "cocainism" as a disease process and part of the spectrum of the disease of chemical dependence. We note that "pure" cocainism is rare and cocaine is usually just another chemical used in the polyaddicted patient. We call cocaine the "Great Precipitator" as it often brings the polyaddicted chemically-dependent person into a crisis that requires a treatment intervention...

The concept of "dual diagnoses" is reviewed along with its clinical implications. Prevalence studies report substance abuse in psychiatric populations as ranging between 20% and 75%, depending on reporting, demographic variables and the community availability of substances. On the other hand, 20% to 65% of alcoholics entering rehabilitation suffer from another major psychiatric disorder. The clinical impact of dual diagnoses involves the development and expression of psychiatric disorders depending on the choice of drugs, the severity of psychopathology and risk of assaultive behaviour, possible misdiagnosis such as the confusion between alcoholism and affective disorders, the increased use of psychiatric resources including emergency, an earlier onset of symptomatology and poorer prognosis...
