Opioid Use Disorder
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nearly 100 Americans die everyday from an opioid overdose (that includes prescription opoid and heroin) and heroin use has increased across the US among men and women, most age groups, and all income levels. “Heroin use more than doubled among young adults ages 18-25 in the past decade. More than 9 in 10 people who used heroin also used at least one other drug. 45% of people who used heroin were also addicted to prescription opioid painkillers”.
In numerous studies, researchers have concluded that a significant number of patients with mental health conditions have one or more co-occurring substance disorders, as well as that patients with substance disorders are more vulnerable to developing psychiatric and medical conditions.
