3 Addiction A brain disease, not a social dysfunction. Green light, Red light responses.
5 Short Definition of Addiction Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is characteristic biological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one s behaviors and interpersonal relationships. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death. Source: American Society of Addiction Medicine ( ASAM)

20 Drug overdose rate by county
21 Kentucky Counties in Crisis
22 Substance use by county
23 METHADONE BENEFITS Right dose does not cause euphoric or tranquilizing effects.* This does not apply to opiate naïve individuals. Reduces/blocks effects of other opiates. Tolerance is slow to develop.
24 METHADONE BENEFITS Relieves cravings. Allows the individual to feel normal. Improved employment status and family relationships.
25 METHADONE BENEFITS Decrease in criminal activities. Decrease in high risk behaviors such as IVDU = decrease in HIV and Hep. C. Improved health and health care.
26 METHADONE LIMITATIONS Increased risk when combined with other drugs. (Benzodiazapines) Can only be dispensed/administered through an OTP. Private can be expensive. Heavily regulated, lots of rules, can be time consuming.
27 METHADONE LIMITATIONS Abuse liability and diversion Use by pain management programs Opiate naïve users Associated health complications torsade de pointes-qt prolongation, arrhythmia - ventricular tycachardia
28 BUPRENORPHINE (SUBOXONE) Overcoming Dependence
29 BUPRENORPHINE Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 In 2002, two forms were FDA approved- Subutex and Suboxone, both made by Reckitt-Benckiser. Schedule III narcotic Opioid analgesic with effects up to 6 hours.
30 BUPRENORPHINE Partial mu opioid agonist (ceiling effect) Long half-life (24-60 hours) Administered as sublingual tablet Subutex- 2 mg or 8 mg buprenorphine Suboxone- 2 mg bup +.5 mg naloxone 8 mg bup + 2 mg naloxone
31 SUBUTEX Contains Buprenorphine only. Minimally used in U.S. today except with pregnant women. Higher rate of diversion, can be injected.
32 SUBOXONE Naloxone added as means to decrease diversion. Poor bioavailability sublingually, but if dissolved and injected, will precipitate withdrawal. High diversion potential with lack of regulatory oversight.
33 BUPRENORPHINE TREATMENT Medication is only one component Short-term v. long-term OTP v. OBOT (Office Based) Overview Federal and State guidelines Kentucky s programs
34 BUPRENORPHINE BENEFITS Virtually no euphoric or tranquilizing effects. Blocks effects of other opiates. Relieves cravings to use other opiates. Allows normal function. Lower abuse liability and diversion potential than Methadone.
35 BUPRENORPHINE BENEFITS Increased anonymity and less intrusive, vs. attending a MAT clinic daily. Increased treatment options/access to treatment. Decrease in high-risk behaviors. Good step down option for those tapering from Methadone.
36 BUPRENORPHINE LIMITATIONS Expensive. Cannot take if opiates still in your system. Counseling may not be available or affordable in the same area as doctor. Doctors limited to 30 patients the first year with a maximum of 100.
37 BUPRENORPHINE LIMITATIONS No regulations for clinics, only practice guidelines. Potential for overdose of other opiates due to ceiling effect. Abuse and diversion potential still exists.
38 NALTREXONE Long half-life (up to 72 hours) Opioid antagonist-binds, but blocks instead of activates Is NOT an opiate
39 NALTREXONE Used primarily to treat alcohol dependence due to blocking neurotransmitters believed to be involved with alcohol dependence. Oral- ReVia Injectable- Vivitrol Implant- not FDA approved
40 NALTREXONE TREATMENT Medication is only one component. Average length of treatment is 3 months. Works best with highly motivated patients.
41 NALTREXONE BENEFITS Any physician can prescribe in any setting. Relatively inexpensive when compared to Methadone or Buprenorphine. Non-addictive, does not produce dependence, and does not build tolerance.
42 BENEFITS CONT. More acceptance in abstinence-based programs. Less stigma than Methadone or Buprenorphine. In KY Medicaid covers, but only oral is 1 st - tier; injectable is a 3 rd -tier.
43 NALTREXONE LIMITATIONS Does not help with cravings. Poor compliance with oral version. Cannot have any opiates in system when starting treatment or will precipitate withdrawal.
44 LIMITATIONS CONT. Injection site reactions Risk of overdose in attempt to break through blockade. Cannot be used with pregnant clients.
45 MAT AND PREGNANCY No FDA approved medications. Cold turkey detox may trigger miscarriage, pre-term labor. Methadone is recommended and preferred mode of treatment. ( Gold Standard) Subutex shows to be promising.
46 MAT AND PREGNANCY CONT. Individualized approach, informed choice. Decreases/ceases cycles of intoxication and withdrawal Decrease in high risk behaviors
47 MAT AND PREGNANCY CONT. Prenatal care Additional services-parenting, nutrition Opportunity to address other factorsmental health, social supports, basic needs
48 KORTOS Ky Opiate Replacement Treatment Outcome Study FY 2012 Abstinence rates increased dramatically ( 6 month review) Rx opioid use decreased 91% from admission Non-Rx methadone decreased 82% Heroin use decreased 100% Alcohol intoxication down 67% Arrests down 65% Decrease in economic hardships down 34% Improved recovery supports up 40%
49 Three things to remember 900 % increase in people seeking treatment in the last decade. 25,428 Kentuckians were admitted to drug and alcohol treatment programs 90+ Kentuckians die EACH MONTH from drug overdoses. Prescription drug overdoses is #1 cause of accidental death- has overtaken MVA s
50 2013 Statistics Heroin arrests have increased 2,334 percent from 32 in 2008 to 779 in 2012 in Louisville LMPD Seizures of heroin are up 6,688 percent LMPD blames 80 percent of burglaries and thefts on heroin addicts Jadac ( Jefferson Alcohol Drug Abuse Center)- 90 percent of its calls are heroin related Kentucky State Police -heroin submissions; in 2010 were 451, in 2012 they were 1074
51 KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER No perfect medication that is one size fits all. All 3 medications work significantly better when utilized in combination with counseling, drug screens, etc. MAT may be appropriate for pregnant women but must be closely monitored and have informed consent. Individuals receiving MAT are in recovery!
