Drilling down into DV and drugs

A recent study gets into some of the nitty gritty of substance use disorders and interpersonal violence (IPV):

  • Alcohol use disorders and cocaine use disorders were most strongly associated with IPV perpetration,
  • while cannabis use disorders and opioid use disorders were most strongly associated with IPV victimization.
  • A diagnosis of both an alcohol use disorder and cannabis use disorder decreased the likelihood of IPV perpetration compared to each individual substance use disorder.
  • A diagnosis of both an alcohol use disorder and cocaine use disorder increased likelihood of reporting IPV perpetration compared with alcohol use disorders alone but decreased likelihood of perpetration compared with a cocaine use disorder diagnosis alone.
