What are LGBTQ+ people’s experiences of alcohol services in Scotland?

Location: Online, United Kingdom

About this event

LGBTQ+ people are more likely to drink excessively compared to heterosexual and cisgender people. Perceived barriers in accessing alcohol services may further increase alcohol-related harm. However, there is limited evidence on what constitutes a meaningful and helpful LGBT+ alcohol service. This is the first qualitative study to explore the experiences of LGBTQ+ people who have used alcohol services in Scotland, and the views of service providers. Methods: We conducted remote interviews with 14 LGBTQ+ people and 15 service providers.

Webinar "Chronic sleep restriction facilitates drug use"

Location: Ciudad de México, Mexico

Chronic restriction of sleep hours is a risk factor for developing cardiovascular, metabolic and psychiatric disorders. Several studies have shown that the chronic reduction of sleep time favors the relapse of patients addicted to substances. In animal models, both sleep restriction and deprivation are reported to increase self-administration of methylphenidate and cocaine. In the seminar we will discuss how chronic sleep restriction favors preference and consumption for alcohol and succulent foods.
