Trump's promise of USPS crackdown on fentanyl trafficking is nothing more than continuation of the cat-and-mouse game w drug supply we've been playing for years. We’d be much better served addressing reasons ppl are using drugs in the first place

Perhaps the single most important finding from the 2018 may be this: The treatment gap remains. •~90% of people with substance use disorders received no treatment for those •Over half of those with mental illness received no treatment for that

The co-founders of Boston's first recreational dispensary are new to the industry and have benefited from Massachusetts' cannabis social equity program. FILTER catches up with one of them.

Absolutely not. If a treatment center has staff that are too under qualified to handle this, what they are providing isn’t treatment. It’s adult voluntary jail and probably substandard counseling. Ineffective models need to end.

And why the treatment gap? The title suggests SAMHSA "blames the victim" ie "despite consequences and disease burden"

I was initially going to tweet this photo instead of the photos with my kids. Often when we reference our times in active addiction we use mug shots or rehab photos, I have those photos too, but they're not representative of my life as a whole when I was using drugs.

In my job. I’ve seen over 300 children die. And to maintain my medical employment Every two years I have to answer a condescending, punitive question that sets a tone of pathologic abnormality Have you EVER sought treatment for your mental health? Of course I have.

We take care of dying people. When medical boards treat mental health care as a sign of weakness, it is a barrier to our well being. About 400 physicians a year die by suicide. We should ALL get mental health care.

Also really puzzled by quote in this piece about a case when a patient neglected to report methamphetamine use. How does that relate to 42 CFR Part 2? Missing something...

We need more privacy protections to encourage ppl w addiction to seek help. Instead of dismantling what we already have, let's build on it

A story of an officer being “exposed” to fentanyl, who, basically stood next to it?, is spreading from . No one “accidentally” ODs on fentanyl by touching it or being near it. The science is unequivocally clear about this. See:

Great article ⁦.⁦⁩ .⁦⁩ . Barriers to evidence-based substance use disorder (SUD) treatment make zero sense - and they kill people. The stigma has to end - lives depend on it.

There are degrees of coercion, so, yes systems can eliminate [go to tx or go to jail], but how different is it for people who've been told, "go to tx or [lose your job], [lose your professional license], [lose your kids], [risk your family relationships], [lose your marriage]"?
