Decision-making, impulsivity, and drug severity in co-occurring substance dependence and pathological gambling

Abstract

Aims:
Substance use disorder and pathological gambling share characteristics of impaired decision-making, higher impulsivity, and greater risk-taking. Having both diagnoses may be associated with greater problems than either diagnosis alone. We hypothesized that in substance dependent individuals, co-occurring pathological gambling would be associated with worse decision-making, impulsivity, risk-taking, and drug severity.
