Proposed National Resilience Strategy to reverse catastrophic increases in deaths of despair

first_imgMay 26 2018Startling increases in nationwide deaths from drug overdoses, alcohol, and suicides constitute a public health crisis – spurring an urgent call for a National Resilience Strategy to stem these “deaths of despair.” The proposal is outlined in a special commentary in the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice, published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer. John Auerbach, President and CEO of Trust for America’s Health, and Benjamin Miller, Chief Strategy officer of Well Being Trust, outline their organizations’ proposal for a National Resilience Strategy – a comprehensive approach to reversing these mortality trends while improving behavioral health services and prioritizing prevention by supporting healthier communities.Proposed National Response to ‘Triple Epidemic’ of Drug, Alcohol and Suicide Deaths”The United States is facing a triple set of epidemics – more than 1 million Americans have died from drug overdoses, alcohol, and suicides between 2006 and 2015,” Mr. Auerbach and Dr. Miller write. Last year, their organizations issued a report, titled “Pain in the Nation,” projecting that drug, alcohol, and suicide deaths could reach 1.6 million over the next decade, based on trends since 1999.Updated projections using data from 2015-16 suggest that the number could exceed 2 million. “This would mean more than 287,700 individuals could die from these three causes in the year 2025, double the current number who died in 2016,” according to the authors. The most recent data show disproportionately large increases in drug deaths among racial/ethnic minorities, especially black Americans.In their article in Journal of Public Health Management and Practice, the authors introduce their proposed National Resilience Strategy to the public health professionals who will play a key role in its design, implementation, and evaluation. Consisting of more than 60 research-based policies, practices, and programs, the Strategy includes: Improved pain management and treatment – including but not limited to responsible prescribing of opioids. Complementary efforts will entail increased education and training for healthcare providers, ongoing use of prescription drug monitoring programs, and increased public awareness of the risks of opioid dependence. Harm reduction services – including increased access to the overdose “rescue drug” naloxone and sterile syringes. Recommendations also call for expanding availability of misuse services that meet modern standards of care, with a focus on “treatment as prevention.” New approaches to suicide prevention – emphasizing a cultural shift to focus on identifying and providing targeted prevention strategies to high-risk individuals and groups, as well as national and statewide efforts to develop effective suicide prevention plans.

This includes initiatives to bolster the behavioral health workforce and increase availability of Medication-Assisted Treatment and other best practices for opioid use disorder.Another major goal is prioritizing prevention, supporting evidence-based programs to reduce risks for substance misuse, suicide, and other harms while promoting protective factors within individuals, families, and communities. Recommendations include development of multi-sector collaborative partnerships to build sustainable, scalable programs to programs to address the drug, alcohol, and suicide epidemics and to promote ongoing prevention efforts. Integrated approaches focus on early-children programs, modernizing the child welfare system, and various types of school- and community-based programs.Despite the discouraging trends, Mr. Auerbach and Dr. Miller believe it’s not too late to reverse the catastrophic increases in deaths of despair. “All across this nation, communities are rising up to address these issues that take lives all too soon,” they conclude. “The resources and additional expertise needed to prevent more deaths should be provided as soon as possible-;and the nation must come together to support and implement a National Resilience Strategy.”​center_img Source:https://wolterskluwer.com/last_img read more
