"There is no illness currently being treated that will be more affected by the Affordable Care Act than addiction, that's because we have a system of treatment that was built for a time when they didn't understand that addiction was an illness."

Kentucky receives over $1 million to combat drug overdose epidemic

By | Government, News, Recovering(me) | No Comments

Kentucky will be getting a much-needed fiscal boost to fight the continuing crisis of prescription drug abuse and overdose. WFPL News reported that on August 5 the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was in Kentucky, in part to award the state with a $1.08 million grant. The Prescription Drug Overdose Prevention Boost grant will be used to remedy the drug overdose epidemic that has been devastating many areas of the state, notably Northern and Eastern Kentucky. The three-year grant funding was awarded to five different states currently facing some of the worst crises in prescription drug misuse.

Kentucky’s heroin problem is still growing

By | Government, News, Recovering(me) | No Comments

The state’s efforts at reducing overdose deaths may be proving effective in some areas, but heroin overdose rates keep getting worse.

Every year Kentucky’s Office of Drug Control Policy is required to issue a report on the number of drug overdoses that occurred in the state over the past year. The statistics that are compiled are used to track the state’s campaign against the epidemic of heroin and opioid drug use and overdose faced by many of the state’s regions. This year’s report, recently issued, offered some good news and bad. Although the total number of overdose deaths remained the same as the previous year, there’s been an upsurge in heroin overdose deaths.

Improving the way we treat women struggling with addiction

By | Government, Judicial System, News, Recovering(me), recovery program | No Comments

In July four senators hosted a forum that examined the special plight of women struggling with addiction and substance use problems in the United States. For a number of reasons, the effects of addiction stigma can be particularly hard on women seeking help for a substance use disorder. This special forum brought together addiction experts to discuss issues like the delivery of effective treatment to women with addictions, as well as the unique challenges faced by pregnant women and addicted mothers. Also in attendance was Michael Botticelli, the acting director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, who noted some troubling statistics in a summary of the forum, such as the higher frequency of drug use in pregnant teenage women compared to pregnant women aged 26-44, and the much higher rate of increase in overdose deaths in women compared to men over the last decade.

States with high opioid misuse rates may find some relief with new, safer painkiller

By | News, Recovering(me) | No Comments

The epidemics of prescription opioid and heroin abuse occurring throughout the country may have much to do with the high rates of painkiller prescriptions that currently exist in many states, particularly in the South and Midwest. States with some of the worst problems with heroin use and overdose deaths, like Kentucky, also rank near the top of the list of the most-prescribing states. From local community action to state and national drug policy, different strategies to solve the drug crisis are being pursued, and now a new painkiller is ready to enter the market that may be more resistant to misuse and overdose.

Addiction experts plan innovative tech solution to heroin epidemic

By | Government, News, Recovering(me) | No Comments

In response to the surging drug epidemics seen across the country, national agencies and health experts are now developing an enhanced system for monitoring drug trends. In August 2014, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will start funding the National Drug Early Warning System (NDEWS), which will provide more intensive monitoring of local drug use trends and allow experts to act more quickly to address outbreaks of drug abuse before they spread to other areas. The system will also take advantage of social media platforms to provide information and education to people living in areas where addiction outbreaks are occurring.
