Mass. General Becomes First ER in State to Offer MAT

Massachusetts General Hospital is the first emergency department to offer buprenorphine to patients with opioid use disorder who want to start treatment immediately.   Doctors who want to prescribe buprenorphine, likely as a key part of a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) plan for opioid use disorder, can now opt to complete an eight-hour course—which includes listening to people who are on MAT and how it has improved their lives—and sign a physician waiver from the federal government. While this ensures that physicians know what it is they’re prescribing before they do so, some view this extra training as a hurdle by physicians that prevents them from offering this treatment.   That is something Dr. Ali Raja, executive vice chairman of the Department of Emergency at Mass.

Earlier this summer, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three deca...

Taking on Addiction: Are Cities Helping or Hurting the Homeless Population?

Recently, I traveled to Portland for a conference; an Oregon city I hadn’t visited in several years. As I walked the streets during breaks in my work schedule, I was surprised at the number of homeless people camped out on every corner. Tents adorned the sidewalks, campers panhandled pedestrians who walked by, and garbage was everywhere. I even spotted a couple of used needles sitting atop a public trashcan. The Increasing Homeless Population As it turns out, Portland’s homeless population has been on a steady increase the past several years, rising 10% from 2015 to 2017. In fact, it’s become so prevalent that the city was forced to declare a homeless emergency several years ago, an issue that has not only impacted those on the streets, but local Portlanders as well. In a recent K...

Florida Sues Pharmacies Over Opioid Sales

The state of Florida is suing two of the nation’s largest drugstores, Walgreens and CVS, for allegedly contributing to the opioid crisis, reports the Associated Press. The lawsuit argues that these pharmacies have contributed to the opioid crisis in the U.S. by way of inflating the supply and demand for opioids in the state. This is the latest action the state has taken in the fight against moneyed pharmaceutical interests, and this case will be added to an existing lawsuit against Purdue Pharma, the maker of the highly addictive opioid painkiller, OxyContin, and other pharmaceutical companies who have been accused of contributing to the ongoing opioid crisis in the country. What do Pharmacies have to do with the Opioid Crisis? Attorney General Pam Bondi said that CVS and Walgreen...

Most Popular Drug in U.S. by Decade

Drugs are a popular topic in today’s media. From the war on drugs, the widespread legalization of marijuana, or the opioid crisis, it’s hard to miss a conversation that revolves around drugs.  This isn’t news, though. Drugs have been around for a long time. In fact, drug use has been ingrained in societies for thousands of years. Here at Rehabs.com, it’s important for us to look at historic trends to see how drug use has affected people since drug use began. But, since that kind of historical data doesn’t exist, we decided to scale down our research and look at a smaller timeline – the past few decades. We went through the National Survey on Drug Use and Health from 1979 through 2017* from SAMHSA and compiled the data to figure out what the most popular drug is by decade. Take a l...

The Correlation Between High School Dropout Rates and Drug Use

High school can be difficult for a number of reasons. It can be academically challenging, highly stressful as college preparation ramps up, and often includes a lot of social pressure to act or do as the “in crowd” does. All in all, there is a lot on high school students’ shoulders during this period. Unfortunately, this can lead to dropouts. Students will leave high school without finishing for a number of reasons, and many of these overlap with the reasons teens experiment with drugs. Feeling like they don’t belong, feeling immense stress, feeling depressed — each of these can push a student over the edge. With this in mind, we decided to look further into how high school dropout rates correlate with drug use across the U.S. Read on to learn more about our study — we start with ...

The next cybersecurity headache: Employees know the rules but just don’t care

Employees are still ignoring cybersecurity best practice despite being more aware of the risks. Cybersecurity has shot to the top of many IT leaders' priorities over the past few months as remote working became the de facto way of doing business. Yet despite more awareness of the security risks of working from home, employees are still showing a lax attitude when putting it into practice, according to new findings. Security firm Trend Micro surveyed more than 13,000 remote workers across 27 countries for its latest Head in the Clouds survey, which sought to understand individuals' attitudes towards risk in terms of cybersecurity.
