Sleep abnormalities are associated with acute and chronic use of addictive substances. Although sleep complaints associated with use and abstinence from addictive substances are widely recognized, familiarity with the underlying sleep abnormalities is often lacking, despite evidence that these sleep abnormalities may be recalcitrant and impede good outcomes. Substantial research has now characterized the abnormalities associated with acute and chronic use of alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, and opiates. This review summarizes this research and discusses the clinical implications of sleep abnormalities in the treatment of substance use disorders.
Dr Jeffrey Samet, Editor-in-Chief
"Improving the quality of care provided to patients with problems from the use of alcohol and other drugs should be a major health-care goal and research agenda as articulated in the 2006 US Institute of Medicine report, Improving the Quality of Health Care for Mental and Substance Use Conditions. Our goal is to make Addiction Science & Clinical Practice the primary home for evidence to address this international health-care challenge."
