Traumatic experiences and psychological distress in an urban refugee population seeking treatment services

While a growing literature has addressed the psychological consequences of torture and refugee trauma, most studies have focused on homogeneous samples drawn from a single region. Thus, relatively little research has attempted to identify demographic or experiential factors that might help explain different levels of distress in these individuals. We measured depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in a convenience sample of refugees and survivors of torture seeking treatment in a torture treatment program (N = 325). We found 81.1% of patients had clinically significant anxiety, 84.5% had clinically significant depressive symptoms, and 45.7% had significant PTSD symptoms. Regression analyses revealed that anxiety and depressive symptom were significant higher among women (beta = .08, p = 0.02 and beta = .22, p = 0.0001 for anxiety and depression respectively) and those who reported death threats as part of their traumatic experiences (beta = .10, p = 0.033 and beta = .12, p = 0.036 respectively). Symptoms of PTSD were also predicted by death threats (beta = .22, p = 0.03), but were also influenced by the experience of rape (beta = .33, p < 0.001), family torture experiences (beta = .23, p = 0.022), religion (beta = .21, p = 0.03), and age (beta = -.18, p = 0.004). The clinical implications of these results are discussed

How can we combat excess mortality in Harlem: A one day survey of substance abuse in adult general care

Cohen, Mary A; Aladjem, Asher; Horton, Amy; Lima, Jose; et al
Hypothesized that a 1-day survey of all patients hospitalized on Adult General Care (AGC) would demonstrate a need for expanded addiction services in a municipal teaching hospital in East Harlem. 276 patients in AGC were interviewed in 1 day to assess whether they abused drugs or alcohol or were hospitalized for reasons related to substance use. Of the 276 patients interviewed, 18% used alcohol alone, 14% used drugs alone, 17% used both drugs and alcohol, and 2% were hospitalized for reasons related to substance abuse. 51% of all patients were admitted because of substance use and its sequelae or as a result of violence associated with the buying or selling of drugs. 14% were known to be human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seropositive. Results indicate a need for expanded addiction services. (unassigned)
