Relationships between coping, anxiety, depression and health-related quality of life in outpatients with substance use disorders: results of the SUBUSQOL study

Abstract : Previous research showed that coping strategies are associated with depressive symptoms and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with chronic somatic conditions. The aim of this study was to examine the coping strategies used in patients with substance use disorders and to assess the relationships between coping strategies, HRQoL, anxiety and depression. Coping was assessed in a prospective outpatient cohort by the Brief COPE. Additionally, sociodemographic and clinical data were collected, and questionnaires assessing HRQoL (SF-12) and states of anxiety and depression were completed. Cross-sectional analysis using Pearson correlations and multiple linear regression was performed. A total of 244 patients were included. Acceptance, planning and self-blame were the most used coping strategies. Strong correlations were found between anxiety, depression, coping strategies and HRQoL. On the MCS-12, better scores were associated with male gender, lack of anxiety or depression and coping styles based on less self-blame, on positive reframing, acceptance, and behavioral disengagement. Patients without depression or anxiety, and no comorbidity had better scores on the SF-12 PCS. Coping strategies of substance-dependent outpatients should be assessed, as they might be useful for identifying patients in need of support. Furthermore, interventions that improve coping capabilities might be helpful for improving HRQoL.
