Previous substance use disorder is a risk factor for future development of substance use disorder

MED talks with Dr KK Aggarwal

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in response to a request for comment from the website Tonic: “ A previous substance use disorder is a risk factor for future development of substance use disorder (SUD),” but “It is also possible that someone who once had an SUD but doesn’t currently have one has a balance of risk and protective genetic and environmental factors that could allow for alcohol consumption without developing an AUD (alcohol use disorder).”

One study published in JAMA in 2014 showed that,

“As compared with those who do not recover from a substance use disorder, people who recover have less than half the risk of developing a new substance use disorder . Contrary to clinical lore, achieving remission does not typically lead to drug substitution, but rather is associated with a lower risk of new substance use disorder onset.”
