  • Monitoring opioid addiction and treatment: Do you know if your population is engaged? [Journal Article]
  • DADrug Alcohol Depend 2019 Jul 06; 202:56-60
  • Prieto JT, McEwen D, … Shlay JC
  • CONCLUSIONS: A health-system level view of the continuum of opioid addiction care identified improvement opportunities to better monitor accuracy of diagnosis, treatment capacity, and effectiveness of patient engagement. Applied longitudinally at local, state and national levels, the model could better synergize responses to the opioid crisis.
  • Kratom as a substitute for opioids: Results from an online survey. [Journal Article]
  • DADrug Alcohol Depend 2019 Jun 29; 202:24-32
  • Coe MA, Pillitteri JL, … Henningfield JE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Respondents reported using kratom for conditions which often require use of opioids, including pain and reduction of opioid use. The high self-reported efficacy and low incidence of adverse reactions associated with kratom use suggest that it may provide a potential alternative to opioids for some persons even though it has not been evaluated in multi-center clinical trials or approved for any therapeutic purpose. Further study of kratom, including systematic characterization of its safety and efficacy for various conditions is warranted.
  • Adolescent exposures to traditional and novel psychoactive drugs, reported to National Poison Data System (NPDS), 2007-2017. [Journal Article]
  • DADrug Alcohol Depend 2019 Jun 29; 202:1-5
  • Ng PC, Banerji S, … Wang GS
  • CONCLUSIONS: U.S. Poison Centers reported almost 50,000 exposure calls and 181 deaths over 10 years for adolescent exposures of both traditional and novel psychoactive drugs, demonstrating the significant health impact on this vulnerable population. Opioids and 2C drugs contributed to the highest mortality rates, moderate/major symptoms and healthcare utilization, and LSD had the most significant increase in calls. Multi-source surveillance methodology is critical in understanding the public health impact on drug abuse in the adolescent population.
