1 Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley Saving Lives Creating Healthier Communities 2014 Annual Report

2 Letter from the CEO Our Story, Our Mission As we move forward towards becoming a more effective organization we reflect back on how critical our mission is to those in our community who are in most need of our services. Our previous efforts to provide effective professional services must be followed by meaningful efforts to examine and evaluate our successes, our shortfalls, our challenges and our plans for improvement. At the end of Fiscal Year 2014, we review our success and accomplishments as an organization. However, we must remember that our success and accomplishments only mirror the success and accomplishments of the individuals who are members of our organization. ADACCV is made up of a small group of committed individuals who are devoted, professional and who genuinely care for those we serve. These individuals include not only our employees, but also, our board members and many generous community volunteers. Some contribute time, others their expertise and some contribute financially, but what is more significant is that they all share their hearts and their selfless desire to serve others. It is the culmination of these individual strengths, commitment, devotion and professionalism that produces the commitment, devotion and professionalism that ADACCV is known for and consistently delivers. This report not only highlights facts, figures and statistics that exhibit a tangible record of the accomplishment of outcomes, measures and service delivery, it also tells a story of a community. It s the community s story of how an organization interacted with a dynamic group of diverse community partners towards the benefit of our entire community. It is the story of an organization and a community saving lives and becoming healthier together. Eric A.

5 Treatment Programs Client Demographics Williams House Sara s House Outpatient WH Total: 147 SH Total: 91 OP Total: 143 Grand Total: 381 According the United States Census Bureau, the estimated 2013 population in Texas is 26,448,193, with 80.3% White, 12.4% Black, 38.4% Hispanic and 4.3% Asian. The United States Census Bureau estimated that 169,054 individuals resided in the Concho Valley in ADACCV s primary service area, the Concho Valley, covers over 16,000 square miles in fourteen counties (Coke, Concho, Crockett, Irion, Kimble, Mason, McCullough, Menard, Reagan, Runnels, Schleicher, Sutton, Sterling and Tom Green). San Angelo, located in Tom Green County, serves as the urban hub to the mostly rural region. 5

6 Treatment Programs Drug of Choice by Program What is addiction? It is important to understand that addiction is a disease. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), drug and alcohol addiction is a complex disease. Drugs and alcohol change the brain in ways that foster compulsive abuse. Addiction continues to have the stigma of being a moral issue when in reality, it is a serious disease. As with any other chronic disease, it is extremely important to address and manage it. Methamphetamine & Amphetamine Methamphetamine and amphetamine were the number one drug of choice for clients across all ADACCV treatment programs. They are highly addictive stimulants and according to the Substance Abuse Trends In Texas: June 2014" (SATIT), 13% of Texas treatment program admissions, in 2013, were for Methamphetamine/ amphetamine. 201 ADACCV clients listed these as their primary drug of choice. Alcohol The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) finds that approximately 17 million adults ages 18 and older and an estimated 855,000 adolescents ages had an Alcohol Use Disorder in Alcohol was the number two drug of choice for ADACCV clients and 76 clients sought treatment for alcohol. Marijuana & Other Cannabinoids Despite popular belief, marijuana can be addictive. The SATIT report finds that cannabis was the primary problem for 23% of admissions to treatment programs in Synthetic cannabis is intended to mimic delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana, but with different chemical structures. The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) explains Synthetic marijuana (often known as K2 or Spice ) are often sold in legal retail outlets as herbal incense and plant food, respectively, and labeled not for human consumption to mask their intended purpose and avoid FDA regulatory oversight of the manufacturing process. On September 1, 2011, Texas banned many of the synthetic cannabinoids and the U.S. banned more varieties on March 1, 2011, July 9, 2012, and February 10, These were the drug of choice for 52 ADACCV clients. Heroin, Opiates & Methadone NIDA describes heroin as an opioid drug that is synthesized from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of the Asian opium poppy plant. Similar to heroin, opiates also include opiatebased prescription pain reliever abuse such as Hydrocodone, Lortab, Oxycodone, Oxycontin and others. In 2011, NIDA found that 4.2 million Americans aged 12 or older (or 1.6 percent) had used heroin at least once in their lives. It is estimated that about 23% of individuals who use heroin become dependent on it. 29 ADACCV clients sought treatment for heroin, opiates or methadone. 6

7 Treatment Programs Drug of Choice by Program Cocaine & Crack NIDA defines cocaine as a powerfully addictive stimulant drug made from the leaves of the coca plant native to South America. It produces short-term euphoria, energy, and talkativeness in addition to potentially dangerous physical effects like raising heart rate and blood pressure. Crack is also cocaine but they are prepared and used differently. Cocaine is known as the powdered form of the drug that is normally snorted through the nasal cavity or mixed with water and injected. Crack cocaine has been processed to make a rock crystal (also called freebase cocaine ) that can be smoked. The crystal is heated to produce vapors that are absorbed into the blood-stream through the lungs. The term crack refers to the crackling sound produced by the rock as it is heated. 10 ADACCV clients listed cocaine or crack cocaine as their drug of choice. Prescription (Rx) & Over the Counter (OTC) Drugs NIDA defines Rx and OTC drug abuse as medicines taken for reasons or in ways or amounts not intended by a doctor, or taken by someone other than the person for whom they are prescribed. In fact, Rx and OTC drugs are, after marijuana (and alcohol), the most commonly abused substances by Americans 14 and older. The CDC finds Drug overdose death rates in the United States have more than tripled since 1990 and have never been higher. In 2008, more than 36,000 people died from drug overdoses, and most of these deaths were caused by prescription drugs. 3 ADACCV clients sought treatment for Rx and OTC drugs. Hallucinogens The use of hallucinogens (defined as LSD, PCP, or mushrooms) continued to decrease, according to the SATIT report. In the same report, 4.1 percent of students reported using hallucinogens in 2012 and there were only 80 reported treatment admissions in Texas in ADACCV clients sought treatment for hallucinogens. Impact of Unaddressed Substance Abuse Violence Violence is another area of concern when discussing substance abuse. Addiction Treatment Magazine (ATM) states, While substance abuse does not cause domestic violence, say the experts, there is a statistical correlation between the two issues. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) found that 61 percent of domestic violence offenders also have substance abuse problems. ATM further explains, What studies of domestic violence have found is that there is frequent high incidence of alcohol and other drug use by perpetrators during domestic abuse. They mention another interesting outcome, The reality is that not only do batterers tend to abuse drugs and alcohol, but the probability that victims of domestic violence will turn to alcohol and drugs to cope with the abuse increases as well. Child abuse is a serious concern when also addressing substance abuse. ChildHelp.org explains the extensive reach child abuse has amongst children and adults. They find that children whose parents abuse alcohol and other drugs were three times more likely to be abused and more than four times more likely to be neglected than children from non-abusing families. Another interesting bit if data found states, As many as two-thirds of the people in treatment for drug abuse reported being abused or neglected as children. ADACCV counselors find that to be a common occurrence with their clients 7

8 Treatment Programs Impact of Unaddressed Substance Abuse Arrests The 2013 Texas Crime Report indicates that there were a total of 138,567 drug abuse violation arrests, 74,792 Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrests and 86,641 arrests for drunkenness data from San Angelo Police Department shows a total of 11,072 arrests. 565 were drug narcotic violations and 208 were DUIs. Economics The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) explains, The economic cost of drug abuse in the United States was estimated at $193 billion in 2007, the last available estimate. This estimate includes productivity, healthcare and criminal justice costs. Research completed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) further explains, It is estimated that for every dollar spent on addiction treatment programs, there is a $4 to $7 reduction in the cost of drug-related crimes. Drug treatment is an effective way to reduce crime and therefore, a worthwhile investment. Deaths Death is also an unfortunate consequence of substance abuse and addiction. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that in 2012, 4,888 Texans died in fatal traffic accidents and 2,996 involved alcohol. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that in 2011, the number of alcoholic liver disease deaths was 16,749 and the number of alcohol-induced deaths, excluding accidents and homicides was 26,654. The second category includes deaths from dependent and nondependent use of alcohol, as well as deaths from accidental poisoning by alcohol. This statistic ties back to family violence. An early (1994) study on murder in families conducted by the DOJ found that more than half of the defendants accused of murdering their spouses were drinking alcohol at the time of the violent incident. Completion Rates According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration s (SAMHSA) Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) 2009 National Discharges from Substance Abuse Treatment Services report, 46% of long -term residential treatment clients successfully completed their program and 42% of outpatient treatment clients successfully completed their program. The Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley aspires to have higher completion rates than national averages. Abstinence Rates 8 Client abstinence follow ups were conducted after 30 days of program completion.

9 Prevention Programs About the Program Programs Funded Paulette Schell, ACPS Prevention Director Chelsea Ashton, ACPS Prevention Coordinator ADACCV s Prevention Team utilizes scientifically proven strategies to address youth and family substance use issues. They partner with Concho Valley schools to provide a variety of evidence-based curriculums for students ages Each curriculum is weeks long and is presented annually to youth as they grow so instead of a one-time program, youth receive age-appropriate education as they advance from one grade to the next. The curriculum focuses on resistance skills, health, self-esteem and self-empowerment. The Prevention team also provides presentations, interactive demonstrations, activities and other educational opportunities. Annual Funding Level: $377, Youth Prevention Selective (YPS) ages 4-12, Curriculum: Kids Connection 2. Youth Prevention Selective (YPS) ages 12-17, Curriculum: Youth Connection 3. Youth Prevention Indicated (YPI) ages 14-17, Curriculum: Project Toward No Drug Abuse (PTND) According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), there are three types of prevention interventions: Universal, Selective and Indicated. Universal preventive interventions take the broadest approach, targeting the general public or a whole population that has not been identified on the basis of individual risk (O'Connell, 2009). Universal prevention interventions might target schools, whole communities, or workplaces. Selective preventive interventions target individuals or a population sub-group whose risk of developing substance abuse disorders is significantly higher than average, prior to the diagnosis of a disorder (O'Connell, 2009). Selective interventions target biological, psychological, or social risk factors that are more prominent among high-risk groups than among the wider population. Indicated preventive interventions target high-risk individuals who are identified as having minimal but detectable signs or symptoms foreshadowing mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder prior to the diagnosis of a disorder (IOM, 2009). Interventions focus on the immediate risk and protective factors present in the environments surrounding individuals.

12 Prevention Programs Concho Valley C.A.R.E.S. Coalition The C.A.R.E.S. Coalition is directed by local residents and sector representatives who have a genuine voice in determining the best strategies to address local problems. C.A.R.E.S. works hard to connect with community members at a grassroots level. Members attend Coalition Involvement Meetings to create strategies to address local community concerns. The Concho Valley C.A.R.E.S. Coalition consists of the Steering Committee and General Membership. The Steering Committee is the deciding body that meets one time a month. This committee includes representatives from the following sectors: Parents, Youth, Business Community, Civic & Volunteer Groups, Healthcare Professionals, Law Enforcement Agency, Media, State, Local, and/or Tribal Government Agencies, Religious/Fraternal Organizations, Schools, Youth-serving Organizations and Other Organization with Expertise in Substance Abuse. Youth Data The C.A.R.E.S. Coalition collaborates with the Community Development Initiatives at Angelo State University Center for Community Wellness, Engagement & Development. The Core Measures Survey Nine Concho Valley school systems in partnership with the Concho Valley Community Action and Resources for Empowerment and Success (CV CARES) Drug Free Communities Coalition conducted a Core Measures Survey during the spring of 2014 (Academic Year 2013). The Core Measures Survey gathers self-reported student data concerning use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug substances. The Core Measures Survey included 2,741 student participants in grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 from 9 Concho Valley Independent School Districts (ISD). Male students comprised 49.2 percent of the sample (1,314 students) and females were 50.8 percent (1,358 students). 69 students did not indicate gender. Survey Participants by Grade 12 9 Concho Valley Independent School Districts participated in the survey.

Coalition Projects: C.A.R.E.S. Outreach Monthly Community Lunch & Learn The Concho Valley C.A.R.E.S. Coalition hosts a monthly Community Lunch & Learn including topics pertaining to relevant alcohol and substance abuse concerns taking place in the Concho Valley Community. The monthly Lunch & Learn takes place on the second Wednesday of the month (except December and July). They are free and open to the public with lunch provided by River Crest Hospital. Hidden In Plain Sight: What Every Parent Needs to Know Now Hidden in Plain Sight: What Every Parent Needs to Know Now (HIPS) is an interactive project used to educate parents on the indicators of drug use and the possible hiding spots. A teenage bedroom is replicated and parents are allowed to snoop through the room. The project is also presented using backpacks to educate school professionals. Wall ISD hosts HIPS for Parents 13

14 Prevention Programs Signature C.A.R.E.S. Coalition Projects: C.A.R.E.S. Outreach Social Norm Project Above the Influence The Social Norms Theory states that much of people s behavior is influenced by their perception of how other members of their social group behave. The strategy of the social norms approach is to gather credible data (i.e. C.A.R.E.S. Core Measures Student Survey) from a target population (youth) and then, using various health communication strategies (ADACCV Prevention Curriculum and Above the Influence Activities), consistently tell the population the truth about its actual norms of health, protection, and the avoidance of risk behaviors. With repeated exposure to a variety of positive, evidence based messages, the misperceptions that help to sustain problem behavior are reduced, and a greater proportion of the population begins to act in accord with the more accurately perceived norms of health, protection, and safety. (Source: Best Practices of Social Norms/Michael Haines, Social Norms Resource Center) Using the strategy of the social norms approach, C.A.R.E.S. hopes to increase the number of students not using alcohol, increase the perception of risk of personal harm, and increase the perception of disapproval of parents and peers. Past 30 Day Use by Grade 9 Concho Valley Independent School Districts participated in the survey. 14

15 Program Development Capital Campaign for Detox Expansion Project About the Plan ADACCV and its Board of Directors have developed an expansion plan for a 20,000+ square foot addition to ADACCV s Cotton Lindsey Center at 3553 Houston Harte Expressway in San Angelo. The expansion will allow ADACCV to add and subsidize the Concho Valley s only indigent residential detoxification program for up to twelve clients. This consolidation to one location will double the residential treatment capacity by providing thirty male residential treatment beds and eighteen female residential treatment beds (and continue to allow children 5 ½ years and younger to reside with their mother), all while continuing to prioritize providing services for the indigent population. The estimated cost of this project is $5,000,000. Angelina Osornio Torres Program Development Director Architectural rendering of detox expansion plan. Currently, ADACCV s programs are located in three different locations: The Cotton Lindsey Center, Sara s House and Williams House. Williams House, ADACCV men s residential treatment program, can only accommodate up to sixteen men. Sara s House, the women s residential treatment program, can only accommodate up to twelve women and their children. Both locations are land locked and do not have room for growth. Additional Benefits Another important impact the expansion will have is the chance to decrease the wait list and/or time on the wait list. On average, there are roughly 30 individuals on the wait list, including one woman with a child. ADACCV also has to follow a priority population placement requirement mandated by the Texas Department of State Health Services (TX DSHS). This requirement mandates ADACCV to give placement priority to pregnant intravenous (IV) users and pregnant users in that order. An important addition to the agency, that is included in the expansion, is a multi-purpose recreational and activity room. The Prevention team hosts summer camps and winter camps for youth to help keep children occupied when they are out of school. At this time, our Prevention team must utilize the existing conference rooms, which are not designed for a youth-friendly, educational camp atmosphere. The Concho Valley CARES Coalition, which addresses substance abuse on a communitywide level, recently revived the YOUth CARES group, which existed from Their focus is to encourage youth to be actively Photo Courtesy of Panamowr Photography involved in the community, while addressing and preventing substance abuse from a youth perspective. Having a multi-purpose recreational and activity room, where youth feel at home and can gain maximum benefits, will be a welcome and much needed addition. Both intensive residential treatment programs will have access to the multi-purpose recreational and activity room. It will also be utilized during client visitation days when families, including client children, come to visit their loved ones. Having access to the room will allow for healthy parent/child bonding to take place. 15

16 Program Development Capital Campaign for Detox Expansion Project Three Stage Model of Treatment A full-scope substance abuse treatment program is comprised of three stages: 1.) Detox -> 2.) Rehab -> 3.) Aftercare Detox is a crucial healthcare component and continues to be the major gap for hundreds in ADACCV s target population, which is the indigent and low income. It has been nonexistent in our community for over 15 years. Detox helps stabilize clients and allows them to safely and comfortably remove the toxins from their body. According to research performed by A. Thomas McLellan, PhD, of the Treatment Research Institute at the University of Pennsylvania when detox services are available immediately for those in need, clients will be better engaged in rehabilitation and in the long run will be more successful in maintaining their recovery. Without detox, they are at higher risk of continuing in their addiction and will remain a burden on the local healthcare system, legal system and other community resources. Currently, individuals in need of detox services have to be referred to indigent detox facilities outside of the Concho Valley. Those facilities tend to have weeks-long wait lists. Once an individual is admitted, they will detox anywhere from 3-7 days. After successfully completing detox, the individual can then be placed on ADACCV s wait list for residential treatment, which can also be week long. The gap between detox and rehabilitation can be detrimental to someone seeking help with their addiction. The goal is to provide an uninterrupted continuum of care. Campaign Progress San Angelo Health Foundation The San Angelo Health Foundation awarded ADACCV a $1,000,000 challenge grant in March Other Foundations ADACCV has pending proposals with local and state foundations. The campaign is being directed by Keith Waters of WPO Development and a strategic plan is in place for the proposal submissions and marketing campaign. Pledges Approximately $250,000 has been raised through private donations and pledges. How Can You Help? Donate Now San Angelo has a history of stepping up to the plate and taking care of its own. We have the solution but we need your help. ADACCV is currently accepting donations for the construction of our residential detoxification facility. Donations can be mailed or made online at our website. The estimated cost of this project is $5 million, which includes furnishings, appliances, etc. Donations can be mailed to: 16 ADACCV c/o Detox Expansion Project 3553 Houston Harte San Angelo, TX Office: or

17 Program Development Grant Awards WTU Reduce Your Use for Good Award, October 2013; $2,500 ADACCV was awarded the WTU Reduce Your Use for Good for $2,500. The funds were used to replace two old water heaters at Williams House with new energy efficient models. The waters heaters have helped ADACCV reduce energy usage. The Art & Eva Camuñez Tucker Foundation, May 2014; $7,495 Funds were used to replace the air handler at Williams House. WH has a furnace that is over 20 years old and needs to be replaced with a new model. With the old furnace, there is a risk that, if a gas leak were to occur, it would be drawn into the system and disbursed throughout the house. The same could occur with smoke or flames if there were a fire. The new furnace allows for easier venting and is energy efficient. To complete this project properly, new drywall and a door were installed for ease of access to the furnace for maintenance, and proper maintenance will help ADACCV conserve money. Fundraisers Let It GO! Recovery Rally & Run, September 2013 The Let It GO! Recovery Rally & Run is one of many events throughout the nation to recognize National Recovery Month and celebrate recovery from alcoholism and addiction. Let It GO! features speakers in recovery, a 1 mile / 5 K walk / run and a balloon release to symbolize people letting go of addiction. The event took place at El Paseo in San Angelo, TX. This year s event raised $4, Board member, Kate Rushing, served as the event Chair. Elvis Presley entertains guests as the 2013 Have A Hear for ADACCV. Photo courtesy of Great Expectations Photography. Race winners pose with their medals at the 2013 Let It GO Recovery Rally & Run. Have A Heart for ADACCV, February 2014 The Have a Heart for ADACCV fundraiser started in Back then, ADACCV had a generous volunteer who would cook and bake for the clients at Williams House, ADACCV's intensive residential facility for adult males. Her yummy confectioneries inspired an idea - why not use those treats to raise money for ADACCV? ADACCV decided to host an online auction bake sale, just in time for Valentine's Day! Since then, ADACCV has hosted Have a Heart on an annual basis. Confectioneries would be donated by many generous businesses and local bakeries and even ADACCV Board members and staff!
