Talk Title: Towards a biosensor-driven, just-in-time relapse prevention tool for substance use disorder: Identifying neurocardiac biomarkers of stress and relapse risk
Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series
Abstract: Substance use disorders carry tremendous personal and societal costs, and despite best patient and clinical efforts, relapse is common. Much research has sought to identify psychosocial risk factors for addiction relapse, but much less attention has been paid to how psychophysiological impairment may confer risk. In this talk, I will highlight how stress and central autonomic network dysregulation reflected by reduced heart rate variability (HRV) may heighten risk for individuals in early alcohol use disorder (AUD) recovery, showing that HRV can be used to predict subsequent alcohol use. I will also show preliminary findings from a study that aims to use smartwatches and machine learning to identify stress states, with the goal of developing a just-in-time relapse prevention tool for individuals in early recovery from substance use disorder.
