The Opioid Epidemic Consumers and Healthcare Guide
Nonfiction: Self-Help Medical-Health
Read one of the most comprehensive books about the opioid epidemic: opioid overdose deaths, illegally manufactured fentanyl (IMF), synthetic opioid analogs, heroin, and how marijuana/cannabis affects the opioid epidemic. Read also about how drugs like cocaine methamphetamine and benzodiazepines (BENZOS) affect the opioid epidemic. Also learn about different medication treatments/programs such as naloxone, Suboxone, methadone, Safe Injection Sites/Supervised Injection Sites /Insight, and many drug detoxification protocols. Learn how to protect your children from illicit opioids, cocaine, marijuana /cannabis, and other illegal drugs as we combat the opioid crisis.
This book looks at how the opioid epidemic started and where we are now. We examined and explained the causes of the opioid epidemic and who are most likely responsible, as we look at prescription drugs and the doctors and providers who write these prescriptions. The impact of legal and illegal opioids and their contribution to the opioid epidemic are discussed. Also, non-opioid drugs, which are also a major contributing factor to the opioid epidemic, are considered. The significance of diversions of opioids and controlled substances is presented.
The impact of the opioid epidemic on family and loved ones, including teens and young adults, is also presented, as well as some of the obstacles to available treatment.
Foster’s Opioid Classification Addiction Status (FOCAS) Guide
Nonfiction: Self-Help Medical-Health
The Foster’s Opioid Classification Addiction Status (FOCAS) Guide is a nomenclature (naming) or grouping of every one of us into a class.
This classification allows for easier characterization of individuals/patients or potential users and users of opioids. This flowchart (algorithm)/table will allow comparable language and descriptions among providers in the healthcare field. This can also help with treatment stratification or protocols. In general, this can simplify communications between healthcare professionals involved with opioid use, treatment, and addiction.
This classification is not a risk assessment tool for the use of opioids. However, understanding patients’ addiction status allowed for better stratification concerning treatment options and possibly the level of care and intervention each patient or individual may need. Throughout the algorithm, patients’ risk levels will vary and change and may be at any level regardless of the group or class they entered or are classified. Appropriate medical, and nonmedical intervention, treatment, and the possible obstacles that will be faced by those of us who work with chronic and acute pain patients can be more clearly defined once we have an understanding and knowledge of each one’s Opioid Addiction Status.
