Background
This study aimed to examine the effects of trait and situational factors on suicidality among illicit drugs abusers.
Methods
Data were collected from 185 illicit drugs abusers in Korea who completed a survey to measure the risk-taking trait, impulsive behavior, acquired capability for suicide, thwarted interpersonal need, and suicidality. Multiple regression and hierarchical regression analyses were conducted for data analysis.
Results
The risk-taking trait affected the acquired capability for suicide by partially mediating the impulsive behavior. Additionally, the interaction effect between thwarted interpersonal need and acquired capability for suicide on suicidality was identified.
Conclusions
The higher risk-taking trait of illicit drugs abusers induced higher acquired capability for suicide, which actuates the suicidal desire. Additionally, the repeated exposure of impulsive behavior mediated the path. Furthermore, acquired capability for suicide moderated the relationship between thwarted interpersonal need and suicidality. This study examined the effects of trait and situational factors on suicidality of illicit drugs abusers.

Background
This study aimed to examine the relationship between suicidality, stop drinking controllability, hopelessness, and social activity in a population sample of individuals with alcohol use disorder (AUD) and to determine how AUD contributes to suicidal behavior.
Methods
A total of 252 participants diagnosed with AUD were surveyed, and multiple regression analysis and hierarchical regression analysis were used to analyze the data.
Results
Hopelessness fully mediated the relationship between the ability to stop drinking and suicidality. At low levels of social engagement, the relationship between hopelessness and suicidality was significantly modified by social activity.
Conclusions
The results of this study suggest that patients with AUD who were unable to successfully address their drinking problem and abstain from drinking were more likely to experience hopelessness. In addition, we concluded that hopelessness can lead to suicidal ideation or suicide attempts.
