After years of decline, workplace drug test positives are increasing

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Oct 2. 0 Replies

For the first time in more than a decade, positive rates for urine drug tests in the combined general workforce and safety-sensitive occupations is increasing, based on data from one of the major diagnostic testing labs.Diagnostic lab Quest Diagnostics says the increases in part reflect general patterns of greater use of drugs such as marijuana in the U.S. population. Company officials add that they remain keenly interested in how relaxed marijuana laws in some jurisdictions might begin to affect trends in workplace test results in coming years.Quest Diagnostics last week released its latest Drug Testing Index, showing that 3.7% of urine tests performed by its laboratories in the combined workforce came back with a positive reading in 2013, compared with 3.5% of tests conducted in 2012. This was the first such increase since 2003. The company's analysis looks at both private employers and workplaces that are subject to federal drug…Continue

STUDY: Prescriptions for opioids stabilizing, effectiveness of PDMPs varies by state

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Mar 25. 0 Replies

In a recent study, researchers at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health evaluated the impact of state-wide prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) and found that after tripling until 2007, annual rates of prescriptions for opioid analgesics have stabilized although the effects of PDMPs on opioid dispensing vary markedly by state. Findings are published in the March/April issue of Public Health Reports.The researchers of the study – which was supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health, and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, CDC – used quarterly data on prescription opioids from the US Drug Enforcement Administration's Automation of Reports and Consolidated Orders System for the years 1999-2008 to analyze the impact of the program nationally and at the state level. Data were then converted to morphine milligram equivalents or MMEs for each state and the District of Columbia. Results were based on data for…Continue

Heroin becomes an increasing problem on Long Island

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Jan 27. 0 Replies

Heroin's toll on Long Island is climbing, with hundreds of deaths over two years, an increase in nonfatal overdoses and evidence of a younger clientele, according to public officials, experts and preliminary statistics.The drug killed a record 121 people in Nassau and Suffolk in 2012 and at least 120 last year -- the two highest totals ever recorded, data show.The recent rise in heroin deaths comes even as use of the lifesaving intranasal overdose antidote Narcan grows. Hundreds of overdosing patients -- including 563 people in Suffolk County alone -- successfully received the treatment from police and paramedics last year, county officials said.The fatal and nonfatal heroin overdoses reflect a nationwide trend toward more use of the drug as opioid pain pills -- which offer a similar high -- become harder to obtain amid increased regulations and a dwindling street supply, officials said.Nassau medical examiner officials said their preliminary 2013 heroin overdose totals could rise by…Continue

Psychodrama can be a powerful tool in addiction treatment

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Jan 14. 0 Replies

In some respects, the clinical work Bill Coleman conducts at multiple treatment facilities resembles a task that makes the old new again.“In the 1980s and the early ’90s, experiential was the thing to do,” says Coleman, LMSW, the resident psychodramatist at Sierra Tucson who also directs psychodrama groups for the intensive outpatient program at the Desert Star Addiction Recovery Center in the same Arizona city. “We’ve drifted away from that, with the press to make one’s treatment fit a medical model.”While Coleman believes every legitimate addiction treatment program must offer some form of psychodrama as part of its therapeutic services, he adds that it often isn’t easy at first to bring addiction treatment patients into the fold. He generally sees the substance abuse population as the most reluctant group he works with, and he struggles to understand why.Still, Coleman spreads the message that psychodramatic structures can work well with individuals in early recovery who are…Continue

The opioid menace lives on

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Dec 13, 2013. 0 Replies

The names of emerging drug threats come and go, but for years now opioid dependence has remained the most prevalent and puzzling issue being addressed and analyzed in the nation’s public and private drug treatment facilities. Some communities continue to battle a prescription drug misuse epidemic with no clear end in sight, while other locations have seen a resurgence of street heroin, and few leaders believe any other drug phenomenon stands a chance of eclipsing the societal impacts of opioid addiction.Just as there appears to be little possibility of declaring imminent victory against the opioid problem, so too does it seem unlikely that proponents of drug-free and medication-assisted treatment approaches will achieve a complete meeting of the minds anytime soon. While some traditionally 12-Step based facilities such as Hazelden have recently opted to allow some of its patients to receive maintenance dosing of buprenorphine while in residential treatment, the movement in that…Continue

Suboxone is the blockbuster drug...

Started by Fresh Start Recovery. Last reply by Fresh Start Recovery Nov 21, 2013. 1 Reply

The NY Times has a new piece on Suboxone.First, on its blockbuster status:Suboxone is the blockbuster drug most people have never heard of. Surpassing well-known medications like Viagra and Adderall, it generated $1.55 billion in United States sales last year, its success fueled by an exploding opioid abuse epidemic and the embrace of federal officials who helped finance its development and promoted it as a safer, less stigmatized alternative to methadone.But more than a decade after Suboxone went on the market, and with the Affordable Care Act poised to bring many more addicts into treatment, the high hopes have been tempered by a messy…Continue

Study: More than 10% of teens treated in ER admit to misuse of prescription painkillers

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Nov 12, 2013. 0 Replies

A recent study by the University of Michigan has found that more than 10 percent of teenagers and young adults treated in an emergency room admit to misusing prescription painkillers or sedatives.The study asked 2,135 individuals between the ages of 14 and 20 years old about their use of “prescription opioids fentanyl, oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, buprenorphine, and suboxone, and the sedatives Valium, Serepax, Ativan, Xanax, Librium, Rohypnol, and GHB, among others,” according to PsychCentral.The results showed that 10.4 percent of those surveyed admitted to misusing a prescription painkiller or sedative at least once in the past year, which included:Taking the drug to get highTaking a higher dose than was prescribedTaking drugs prescribed to someone else Researchers found that the majority of the use was illicit, meaning that the users had no…Continue

The Science of Choice in Addiction

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Oct 24, 2013. 0 Replies

Research has shown that beating addiction is ultimately about regarding addicts as people who can rationally choose.In December 1966, Leroy Powell of Austin, Texas, was convicted of public intoxication and fined $20 in a municipal court. Powell appealed his conviction to Travis County court, where his lawyer argued that he suffered from “the disease of chronic alcoholism.” Powell’s public display of inebriation therefore was “not of his own volition,” his lawyer argued, making the fine a form of cruel and unusual punishment. A psychiatrist concurred, testifying that Powell was “powerless not to drink.”Then Powell took the stand. On the morning of his trial, his lawyer handed him a drink, presumably to stave off morning tremors. The prosecutor asked him about that drink:Q: You took that one [drink] at eight o’clock [a.m.] because you wanted to drink?...And you knew that if you drank it, you could keep on drinking and get drunk?A: Well, I was supposed to be here on trial, and I didn’t…Continue

Counselors are split on medication-assisted treatment

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Oct 21, 2013. 0 Replies

How do counselors feel about the role medication plays in the treatment setting? Are they resistant? If yes, why?This was the discussion at an afternoon session of the NAADAC (National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors) conference today. The session, titled “SUD Counselors on the Job: A Bi-Directional Workshop on New Data on Job Satisfaction and Utilization of Medication-assisted Treatment,” illustrated data from the National Treatment Center Study (NTCS).These were longitudinal studies of organizations that were privately funded, publicly funded, alcohol-focused or CTN (Clinical Trials Network) participants. The studies did not look at methadone clinics or detox-only programs.The studies asked about specific medications including buprenorphine, naltrexone (tablet or injection), disulfiram, and acamprosate, as well as general questions about medication-assisted treatment. Results showed that the primary predictors of higher ratings of effectiveness and acceptability…Continue

Individuals with a dual diagnosis can benefit from 12-step programs too

Started by Fresh Start Recovery Oct 1, 2013. 0 Replies

Studies and testimonials have shown that 12-step mutual-help organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can play an important role in addiction recovery among young adults with substance use disorders (SUDs). However, concerns exist regarding the suitability of 12-step programs for clinical subgroups such as those with co-occurring substance use and psychiatric disorders, called dual diagnosis (DD). A study of the influence of a DD or SUD-only diagnostic status on post-treatment attendance, active involvement in, and derived benefits from 12-step programs has found that young adult DD patients and SUD-only patients benefitted similarly from program attendance and involvement.Results will be published in the February 2014 issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research and are currently available at Early View."There are two major clinical concerns about purely addiction-focused 12-step groups for DD patients" said Brandon Bergman, a…Continue
