Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

SUD impacts the individual and his family's daily occupations while posing a massive health and societal concern. OTs may contribute a unique perspective in understanding this phenomenon. This is the first study to explore pain sensitivity and SMD in SUD. Findings demonstrate that while pain and SMD coexist, SMD may serve as a risk factor for having SUD, thus indicating a potential additive value for OTs in SUD therapy.
