Substance Use Disorder: Smoking
Substance use disorders (SUD), including the abuse of alcohol, prescription medications, or opioids, can lead to significant negative consequences to an individual's mental and physical health, work performance, housing status, and social functioning. Important issues being studied include alcohol screening and brief counseling, SUD specialty care, and the treatment of common comorbidities (i.e., SUD and PTSD or SUD and chronic pain).

This study examined the prevalence of food insecurity in an older male population. Findings showed that there was a significantly lower prevalence of food insecurity among male Veterans compared to non-Veterans (6% vs. 12%, respectively). Nevertheless, several factors predisposed male Veterans to a higher risk for being food insecure. Younger Veterans (aged 50-64) were more likely to be food insec...
