Harris and Barraclough (1997) also determined that the risk for suicide in individuals with a drug abuse or dependence disorder is, depending on the particular drug under consideration, between 4 and 20 times that which would be expected for non-drugdependent individuals with similar demographic characteristics. The risk for suicidal acts increases even more in the context of polydrug use (E. C. Harris & Barraclough, 1997; Vingoe, Welch, Farrell, & Strang, 1999) and comorbidity with another psychiatric disorder (Prigerson, Desai, Lui-Mares, & Rosenheck, 2003).

PROXIMAL RISK FACTORS The risk factors discussed to this point in the chapter are generally regarded as distal risk factors, or variables that "form the foundation for attempted and completed suicides" and that "may not obviously occur immediately antecedent to the suicidal event itself (Moscicki, 1999, p. 44). Proximal factors, in contrast, are "closely associated with the suicidal event and can be thought of as precipitants or 'triggers' for suicidal behavior" (p. 44). As is seen in Part II of this volume, we encourage clinicians to identify the proximal risk factors associated with patients' suicidal crisis to develop strategies to manage similar problems in the future.
