Abstract

IntroductionMethamphetamine dependence (MD) is associated consistently with poor physical and mental health and high levels of family and social conflict , impacting upon an individual's wellbeing and overall quality of life (QOL ). QOL, the perception of one's position in life, comprises physical (energy, pain, and difficulties engaging with activities of daily living and work), psychological (affect, self‐perception, perceived cognition), social (personal relationships, social and sexual activity) and environmental (financial/accommodation stability and access to services/information) domains . Previous research has identified that MD is associated with poorer QOL in at least three of these domains: physical (physical and medical impairment ), psychological (diminished emotional control , high rates of anxiety, depression and psychosis ) and social (high interpersonal conflict and lower social support ). Improvement in such domains is a key focus for treatment, with QOL and wellbeing identified as key indicators of addiction recovery and treatment success .Heightened levels of impulsivity (acting without sufficient deliberation) have also been linked to poorer QOL in people with stimulant dependence . Indeed, a latent class study based on impulsivity indices identified that people with cocaine dependence and high impulsivity levels report lower overall subjective wellbeing, greater psychological complaints and higher social
