Medicaid Makes Outpatient Opioid Addiction Treatment Affordable

Medicaid Makes Outpatient Opioid Addiction Treatment Affordable The opioid epidemic takes a staggering toll on the United States. In the past two decades, around 400,000 people have died from opioid-related overdoses. And for the first time, Americans are now more likely to die from opioid overdose than from a car crash. Needless to say, access to opioid addiction treatment is more important than ever. Isn’t Addiction Treatment Expensive? We know that cost is generally the number one barrier that prevents access to treatment. Many inpatient treatment programs can cost tens of thousands of dollars for 30-day stays. While inpatient or residential treatment can be useful for some people, not everyone needs to live in a treatment center in order to achieve recovery. Outpatient medication-assisted treatment (MAT), however, is [...]

New Jersey Paramedics Can Now Offer Patients Suboxone After Overdose

New Jersey Paramedics Can Now Offer Patients Suboxone After Overdose   This is a first for the addiction treatment world. Last month, the New Jersey health commissioner authorized its paramedics to administer the drug buprenorphine (brand name Suboxone) to patients after their overdose had been reversed using the opioid antidote naloxone. This groundbreaking model has two specific goals. The first goal is treating opioid withdrawal symptoms caused by administration of naloxone. Naloxone (also known as Narcan) is an “opioid antagonist” that reverses the life-threatening effects of opioids – specifically depression of the central nervous system and respiratory system. Simply put, naloxone helps to stimulate an overdose victim’s breathing and support improved blood pressure. While its life-saving results are celebrated in the moment, naloxone can [...]

Suboxone Saved My Life

Suboxone Saved My Life   I grew up believing the lies of addiction stigma. Addiction only happens to bad people. If someone gets hooked on drugs, they can just decide to stop whenever they want. People who come from stable homes don’t need to worry about addiction. Dangerous drugs are sold on the streets by scary-looking dealers. I didn’t have anything to worry about. After all, I wasn’t abused as a child or abandoned by my parents. I got good grades in school, graduated from college (twice), landed a great job, and had a wonderful group of friends. I wasn’t in danger of getting hooked on drugs. Looking back, I was embarrassingly naïve. A Common Path to Addiction My addiction story begins like so many [...]
