Experts call for US prison health improvements
In a new paper in the journal Health Affairs, several participants in a workshop convened by the National Research Council and Institute of Medicine unveil their recommendations to improve health care for prisoners both during incarceration and after release. From a public health standpoint, they argue, it's shortsighted to regard prison populations as separate from the community. The very premise of prison invites members of society to think of the people there as walled-off and removed. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Even when average alcohol consumption is moderate, binge drinking is harmful to older drinkers
Numerous studies have highlighted the purported association between moderate drinking and reduced mortality. However, these analyses have focused overwhelmingly on average consumption, a measure that masks diverse, underlying drinking patterns such as weekend heavy episodic or binge drinking. A study of the association between binge drinking and mortality among moderate-drinking older adults has found that those who engage in binge drinking have more than two times higher odds of 20-year mortality in comparison to regular moderate drinkers.

Experiencing hangovers has little or no influence on time to next drink
Many if not most people during their lives have experienced a hangover. Some people believe that hangovers might delay subsequent drinking through pain and discomfort, or perhaps hasten drinking to relieve hangover symptoms, known as "the hair of the dog." A new study has investigated if a hangover following a drinking episode can influence the time to a future drink, finding that the influence is minimal.Results will be published in the May 2014 online-only issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research and are currently available at Early View.

Mastering the Art of Solution-Focused Counseling
There are exceptions to many rules in life. Whether it is a fashion decree about wearing black and brown or the parking law in various neighborhoods, there are many instances where the “rule” does not actually apply.

Guterman covers in the updated version of Mastering the Art of Solution-Focused Counseling.

Physicians are a leading source of prescription opioids for the highest-risk users
Most people who abuse prescription opioid drugs get them for free from a friend or relative - but those at highest risk of overdose are as likely to get them from a doctor's prescription, CDC researchers reported in a research letter, "Sources of Prescription Opioid Pain Relievers by Frequency of Past-Year Nonmedical Use: United States, 2008-2011," in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine (JAMA Internal Medicine). This finding underscores the need for prevention efforts that focus on physicians' prescribing behaviors and patients at highest risk for overdose. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)
