Led by Sarah Arias of Alpert Medical School of Brown University, the team examined 874 men and women who presented at one of eight emergency departments around the country between 2010 and 2012.
They found that although people in the study reported misusing many different substances, including marijuana, prescription painkillers, tranquilizers, and stimulants, only cocaine and alcohol appeared to have a significant association with suicide risk.
Women are not less likely to be suicidal, the researchers note. In fact, they were more likely than men to have reported prior attempts. But the data showed that substance abuse was less likely to be involved among women.
