ARSH Director, Steven Kurtz and Associate Director, Mance Buttram presented data at the Global Addiction Annual Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In its first year outside of Europe, the conference addressed the cultural differences and global nature of addiction with session topics including designer club drugs, alcohol and prescription drug addiction, and opioid abuse. With the international nature of the Miami nightclub culture, and the prevalence of drug abuse multidrug users, Dr. Kurtz and Dr. Buttram presented data from ARSH’s ongoing study of young adult polydrug users in Miami’s nightclub scene. Research findings showed increased sexual risk behaviors among females and pointed toward severe mental health problems, history of victimization, and lack of social support as targets for interventions. In line with the goals of the conference, data presented from this study provided a unique perspective on addiction that can be applied to a broader global perspective.
