Biochemical and Psychosocial Predictors of Recidivism and Relapse Risk Among Incarcerated Methamphetamine Users

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Prenatal testosterone exposure predicts aggression and substance use. However, the degree to which prenatal testosterone exposure affects those that enter the criminal justice system is less understood. The present study tested the hypothesis that greater levels of prenatal testosterone exposure interacts with environmental factors (i.e., lifetime physical abuse) to predict indices of recidivism and relapse among incarcerated methamphetamine users. Results showed that greater levels of prenatal testosterone exposure predicted anger cognition, partner violence and cognitive deficits among those with physical abuse histories, but not among those without this history. Implications related to treatment within prison are discussed.
