Overdose Death Rate – National Institute on Drug Abuse

April 25, 2019

Overdose Death Rate – National Institute on Drug Abuse
https://www.drugabuse.gov/related-topics/trends-statistics/overdose-death-rates

The U.S. government does not track death rates for every drug. However, the National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does collect information on many of the more commonly used drugs. The CDC also has a searchable database, called CDC Wonder. The figures above are bar charts showing the number or rate of U.S. overdose deaths involving select prescription and illicit drugs from 1999 through 2017. The bars are overlaid by lines representing gender or opioid involvement. There were 70,237 drug overdose deaths that occurred in the United States in 2017 (Figure 1), with 66% of cases among males (grey line). The main driver of drug overdose deaths were opioids―mainly synthetic opioids (other than methadone), with a 12.9-fold increase from 2007 to 2017 (Figure 2). Drug overdose deaths involving any opioid―prescription opioids (including methadone), synthetic opioids, and heroin―rose from 18,515 deaths in 2007 to 47,600 deaths in 2017; 68% of deaths occurred among males (Figure 3). From 2016 to 2017, the number of deaths involving prescription opioids remained unchanged (Figure 4) with a decrease reported for deaths involving prescription opioids without synthetic opioids. Overdose deaths involving heroin (Figure 5), psychostimulants (Figure 6) or cocaine (Figure 7) also rose in 2017; however, deaths involving heroin or cocaine were driven by deaths involving the combination of these drugs with synthetic opioids. Deaths involving psychostimulants rose independently from those in combination with synthetic opioids. The final two charts show the number of overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines (Figure 8) or antidepressants (Figure 9). Benzodiazepines were involved in 11,537 deaths in 2017. These were driven by the combination of these prescription drugs with any opioid. Deaths involving antidepressants are also rising, although at a much slower rate than benzodiazepines. As is the case with benzodiazepines, deaths involving antidepressants are mainly driven by those also involving synthetic opioids. This will be added to Healthcare Resources 2019 Subject Tracer™.

WHO: Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2018

December 04, 2018

WHO: Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2018
https://www.who.int/substance_abuse/publications/global_alcohol_report/gsr_2018/en

Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) released their 2018 “Global status report on alcohol and health,” a study that is conducted every four years. This comprehensive study found that in 2016 about 3 million deaths per year worldwide (or approximately 5.3 percent of all deaths) are due to “harmful use of alcohol,” which is a decrease from their 2012 finding of 5.9 percent and that over “three-quarters of these deaths were among men.” WHO also found that about 5.1 percent of the overall disease and injury burden worldwide can be attributed to alcohol. In addition to its findings, this report “gives detailed information on the consumption of alcohol in populations” and describes at the national level what countries are doing to further reduce alcohol’s negative effects. Readers interested in learning more may download a PDF of the full 450-page report, which was edited by Vladimir Poznyak and Dag Rekve. WHO also provides their press release, fact sheets, and an infographic which summarizes the report’s key findings. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

SuperBetter
https://www.superbetter.com

SuperBetter is a free mobile app and web platform that aims to help build personal resilience by using a video game structure to encourage and reward users for positive behavior; or, in other words, for living “gamefully.” Like many video games, SuperBetter uses Power-Ups, Quests, Bad Guys, and Allies to take players on an adventure towards achieving their Epic Win, but in this game each of those represents real-life actions players take to boost their health or moods, progress toward their goals, change bad habits into good, and support friends trying to do the same. Clinical trials conducted by the University of Pennsylvania and The Ohio State University found that SuperBetter has positive effects on its users’ resilience and mental health. SuperBetter was created by Jane McGonigal, a game designer with a PhD in Performance Studies from the University of California, Berkeley and Director of Game Research and Development at Institute for the Future.
