People with substance abuse problems benefit from work

 A paper in Behaviour Research and Therapy, here are the highlights:

• People with opioid use disorder (OUD) often need help with employment problems.

• We “employed” people with OUD in a contingency-management-based study workplace.

• We collected randomly timed ratings of stress, craving, and mood via smartphone.

• Stress, craving, and mood were better at work and, for some endpoints, on workdays.

• These results highlight some particular benefits of employment for people with OUD.
