Approximately 10% of the 20 million Americans who are suffering from substance use disorders are suffering from prescription opioid and heroine misuse. This has led to a rise in overdoses as well as emergency room visits, with over 1000 individuals across the United States being seen in emergency rooms every day. Unfortunately, about 90% of drug overdoses are unintentional. Therefore, finding effective ways to treat opioid use disorders and preventing relapse has now become a national priority. This review of the relevant literature highlights current treatment options available for opioid use disorders, including motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness meditation, mindfulness based relapse prevention, medication assisted therapies, and combination therapies...

In early April 2018, Dr. Maria Oquendo, President of the American Psychiatric Association, and Dr. Nora Volkow, Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, published a thought-provoking article in the New England Journal of Medicine about the role of suicide in the opioid overdose epidemic, referring to the relationship between them as a "hidden tragedy." Drs. Oquendo and Volkow drew our attention to the twinning of the opioid (and other drug) overdose and suicide epidemics, but these are not the first or only drug-related "twin epidemics...

The worsening opioid epidemic ignites infectious disease development and transmission as opioids abused by insufflation and/or injection establish a pathway for infection to the user and propagate vulnerability to diseases. The phenomenon of the synergistic collision of epidemics intensifying the load of disease constitutes a syndemic. Merrill Signer (1994) voiced the term "syndemic" to characterize the complex nexus of politics, economics, psychosocial/environmental factors, and health disparities resulting in the inner-city AIDS crisis of the 1990s...

INTRODUCTION: Prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) are among the most promising state-level interventions to improve opioid prescribing, inform clinical practice, and protect patients at risk for prescription drug misuse, overdose, and death. In 2016, Pennsylvania launched an initiative mandating all prescribers to search the PDMP for each patient when the patient is prescribed controlled substances. OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this project was to support the Pennsylvania PDMP mandate by educating emergency department (ED) providers regarding the opioid epidemic and use of the PDMP and measure opioid prescriptions posteducation...

Opiate overdose deaths are considered an epidemic by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Homeless adults are disproportionately affected by opioid overdoses. The purpose of this project was to implement an opiate overdose training and routine naloxone prescribing program for patients at a Health Care for the Homeless clinic. Education consisted of overdose risk factors, signs of overdose, how to respond to an opiate overdose, and how to administer naloxone. Knowledge was measured with a pretest and a posttest...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and the efficacy and feasibility of a trauma-informed screening for ACEs among individuals in a substance use disorder recovery program. METHOD: Individual interviews, questionnaires, and postinterview survey and reflections were used in this cross-sectional clinical translation project. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze demographics, ACE scores, protective childhood experiences, self-reported diagnoses, and postintervention survey data...

PURPOSE: Opioid abuse and overdose is a public health concern as it relates to increased morbidity and mortality. This systematic review focuses on the application of take-home naloxone programs and its association with decreased mortality among those who abuse opioids. Take-home naloxone programs consist of distributed naloxone kits and corresponding education of overdose recognition. The purpose of this systematic review was to determine if programs that supply take-home naloxone are effective in preventing fatal overdoses among those who abuse opioids...

PURPOSE: The United States is in the midst of an unprecedented public health crisis, with annual morbidity and mortality data related to opioid use consistently increasing and appearing more worrisome. To mitigate such consequences, it is critical that those with opioid use disorders are provided with and have access to evidence-based treatment modalities. METHODS: The project utilized a course scaffolding approach to integrate a comprehensive substance use framework into an advanced practice nursing curriculum, with an emphasis on medication-assisted treatment as part of an advanced pharmacology course required for licensure...

PROBLEM: In 2014, there were approximately 200,000 incidents of an unintentional opioid overdose nationwide. The 2016 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention opioid prescription guidelines identified a knowledge deficit regarding opioid prescribing among primary care providers as a contributing factor to this epidemic. PURPOSE: The purpose of this quality assurance project was to provide education on opioid overdose and distribution of naloxone kits through a presentation to primary care providers at Veterans Administration facilities in the southeast region of the United States...
