Opioid Misuse: America's Not So Silent Killer
As America and the world mourns the death of music icon Prince, there has been speculation that his death was the result an opioid overdose. Yet, the music icon was known for his healthy lifestyle and his rejection of the drug culture that has become a cliché when talking about rock stars. The death of Prince underscores the opioid abuse epidemic in America that is created by the over-prescribing of opioids to treat pain known by names like Percocet, OxyContin, Fentanyl and Vicodin. Last year, American doctors prescribed enough opioids to give every American adult a one-month supply. 30 tablets that could lead to a depen...

Ohio mistakenly releases health information of 59,000 residents
The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services is reviewing its internal processes after a mailer publicly provided private health information for 59,000 residents. A postcard sent in February 2016 to consumers of mental health services asked them to fill out a satisfaction survey related to care they had received.

The latest dangerous “addiction” parents need to worry about: Mobile devices
Follow me at @drClaire For parents of teens, “addiction” is a scary word. It brings to mind all sorts of things we never want to have happen to our children, from overdoses to arrests — and so we talk to our kids about drugs and alcohol. But is there another addiction we should be worrying about, too? The Merriam-Webster definition of addiction is “a strong and harmful need to regularly have something (such as a drug) or do something (such as gamble).” Using that definition, you could make a real argument that many teens are becoming addicted to their mobile devices. You could make the same argument about their p...

Prince's Death Is an Opportunity to Talk to Our Kids About the Dangers of Prescription Drug Abuse
Prince is seemingly now part of a rising death toll related to opioid use, and his death spotlights a growing threat to the health and safety of teens and adults alike. Two years ago, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported 28,000 deaths from opioid overdose. Today, it reports two million Americans are addicted to these medications. The reason opioids like morphine, oxycodone and hydrocodone are problematic is that they are highly addictive and increasingly over-prescribed by doctors - so much so that the CDC recently had to publish guidelines for prescribing physicians. Prescription opioids are also to blame for ...

When Just a Little Is Too Much: The Risks of Alcohol-Exposed Pregnancy
One of my challenges in working with patients suffering from addictive illnesses is to help increase their motivation to stick with a long-term recovery plan. This is a significant challenge for many reasons, especially because the disease of addiction affects the brain's ability to value long term recovery. The one exception to this difficulty, in many cases, is when a female patient gets pregnant. I have witnessed women who struggled for years with an addictive illness discover they are pregnant and, when the pregnancy is wanted, are able to make incredible strides in their recovery. They are often able to maintain sobri...

The Opioid Epidemic: How Did We Get Here?
Welp, we've done it, folks. It's finally come to this. There have been so many deaths from opioid overdose, so many addicts created, so many pills diverted, that the CDC is getting involved. Opioid pain medications, commonly prescribed to treat acute and chronic sources of pain, are a significant cause of morbidity (harm) and mortality (death) in America. In 2014, the CDC reported a total of 47,055 drug overdose deaths in the United States, 61% of which were attributable to opioids. So how exactly did we get here? Like most things in medicine, there is not one simple answer. But it's not that hard to trace things back a f...

Absolute must-read: LA Times on the myth of OxyContin’s 12-hour analgesic effect
Quick: how long does a dose of Oxycontin provide pain relief? Most clinicians would probably say 12 hours, since the drug was extensively marketed as a twice-daily opioid analgesic and the manufacturer — Purdue Pharma — cited this originally unique convenience factor as justifying its high cost, which could exceed $630 a bottle. In an explosive and masterfully written investigative piece by Harriet Ryan, Lisa Girion and Scott Glover,  the Los Angeles Times reported this week that in most patients the duration of the analgesic effect for OxyContin does not last nearly as long as claimed, and that this discrepancy may b...

Sugar: In Sickness And In Health, Until Death Do Us Part
Photo via Pixabay Being a health-conscious food lover, it's hard to believe what my eating habits were growing up. As a child, I used to drink a soda for breakfast every day, followed by three more before 7 PM. Yes, I know; you're judging me. And I'm not proud of what I ate. In fact, I'm pretty embarrassed to admit it, but the truth is, I didn't know any better. Nowadays, we all acknowledge that soda is laced with sugar, and we have seen its damages: tooth decay, weight gain, and hyperactivity in children, among other things. But you may be eating foods that are just as bad as soda. And even worse, you may be feeding it ...
