Does Gender Moderate the Relationship Between Chronic Pain and Substance Use Disorder? Insights From a National Canadian Population Survey.


Though it has been shown that men have a higher lifetime prevalence of substance use disorder and a lower prevalence of chronic pain than women, there is little research to date focusing on gender differences in the relationship between chronic pain and substance use disorder. This study examined whether gender moderates the relationship of chronic pain and substance use disorder. We also sought to examine the gender differences in the associations between specific pain types-arthritis, migraine, and back pain, and substance use disorder.
