The New England ATTC in partnership with RICARES provided a basic/universal TA session titled “State-level homelessness and drug overdose mortality: Evidence from US panel data” on 3/21/24 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. Although we in recovery science understand well that not having access to steady, safe, and secure housing is a risk factor for drug overdose for a given individual, less is known about the relationship between homelessness and overdose mortality (the rate of death resulting from drug overdose) at the state level. In this study, researchers looked at data on housing, population, substance use, overdose, unemployment, and other variables from 2007–2020 for all US states and Washington DC. The result was that overdose mortality was found to be positively associated with homelessness at the state level in other words, the more homelessness there is in a state, the higher the state’s overdose mortality rate is likely to be. However, they found that this association becomes weaker when fentanyl is widely available in a given state. Researchers concluded that, given this association, policies, and programs to prevent and reduce homelessness should be considered critical elements of overdose prevention efforts.

The New England ATTC in partnership with RICARES provided a basic/universal TA session titled “Hospitalizations for Alcohol and Opioid Use Disorders in Older Adults: Trends, Comorbidities, and Differences by Gender, Race, and Ethnicity” on 2/22/24 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. Increasing numbers of adults aged 65+ years are being diagnosed with alcohol and opioid use disorders. Researchers understand relatively little about older people who are hospitalized for these conditions. Researchers in this study looked at Medicare claims data from 2007-2014 for older adults with a diagnosis of alcohol or opioid use disorder and looked at trends around hospitalizations over time, as well as trends by diagnosis, race, and gender. Study investigators found that more and more adults aged 65 years and older have been treated in hospitals for alcohol and opioid use disorders over the study period and that among the people who were treated in hospital, certain race and gender groups were more likely than others to be hospitalized. Investigators concluded that more research on these disparities is needed and that interventions and treatments are needed to help older adults who use substances.
