dc.description.abstractPatients with substance dependence have a great risk of suicidal ideation and attempts. The study of the specific risk characteristics of patients with substance use disorders who present with suicidal ideation and/or attempts becomes a crucial clinical issue in order to develop prevention strategies. The main goals of this study were to determine the prevalence rate of both suicidal ideation and attempts among patients receiving treatment for substance use disorder and to analyse the differential characteristics between these patients with and without suicidal behaviours. A sample of 334 patients (263 men-71 women) who sought treatment for substance use disorder in a Spanish clinical centre was assessed. In total, 43.7% of the patients presented with lifetime suicidal ideation (8.7% in the last month) and 17.7% with suicide attempts (1.5% in the last month). Patients with suicidal ideation or attempts showed a more severe addiction profile (assessed by the EuropASI), and more psychopathological symptoms (assessed by the SCL-90-R). Moreover the rate of suicidal ideation and attempts was significantly higher in inpatients than in outpatients. According to these results, systematic screening of suicidal risk in patients seeking treatment for substance use disorders is recommended, especially in those with a greater addiction severity.en
