In 2015 there were 33,091 opioid-related deaths in the US. Every day, more than 90 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. ER visits and opioid overdose-related deaths have more than quadrupled in the last 15 years. September is National Recovery Month. Join us this Friday for a Twitter chat hosted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to discuss opioid use disorder and ways to prevent and treat it. NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins, NIDA Director Dr. Nora Volkow, NINDS Director Dr. Walter J. Koroshetz, special guest American Society of Addiction Medicine, and several other NIH and HHS components will be responding to questions about the opioid crisis and how the government is working to combat it. Use #OpioidAwareChat to join and help promote. September 29, 11:00am -Noon PT.

AbstractOpioid overdoses (OD) cause substantial morbidity and mortality globally, and current emergency management is typically limited to supportive care, with variable emphasis on harm reduction and addictions treatment. Our urban setting has a high concentration of patients with presumed fentanyl OD, which places a burden on both pre-hospital and emergency department (ED) resources. From December 13, 2016, to March 1, 2017, we placed a modified trailer away from an ED but near the center of the expected area of high OD and accepted low-risk patients with presumed fentanyl OD. We provided OD treatment as well as on-site ...

CONCLUSIONS: Sharp opioid dose restriction in outpatient treatment increases heroin and fentanyl use, explaining why recent years' decrease in United States opioid prescriptions has not reduced national mortality rates. Although Harm Reduction is the safest, most effective single approach, combining three interventions while improving pain and addiction prescribing practices is optimal. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: Scientific research needs to inform choice of opioid overuse interventions. (Am J Addict 2018;XX:1-3). PMID: 30311993 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

SPONSORED POST By JOHN EL-MARAGHY What is the first word that comes into mind when someone says “health” or “health tech?” In 2018, the answer is likely “Opioid” and “Artificial Intelligence (AI).” With a growing public interest in combating opioid abuse and advancing AI, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) teamed up with Catalyst to launch two innovation challenges on those two topics. The first challenge, “the Opioid Challenge,” was designed to address the opioid crisis and support those affected by the opioid misuse while the second challenge, “the ...

Conclusion Comorbidity with substance use disorder is often found in patients suffering from bipolar disorder. Clinicians should conduct a thorough assessment of patient history to uncover substance use disorder, as the treatment of one disorder will be incomplete without fully addressing the other.
