This webinar provide basic knowledge on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD0 and its connection with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), presented by Julie Rosen, MPH., EMDR therapist.  The path leading to one’s substance use is often affected by many different factors. One of them is the fact that people take drugs as a solution to their negative emotions, the discomfort from a traumatic event, or some bad experience that has happened to them in the past. It’s extremely helpful to know and understand the traumas that patients have been suffering and support them in recognizing and resolving traumas. This will contribute to a sustainable improvement of the treatment outcome, facilitating patient to gradually reduce unhealthy behaviors and head for a better free-of-drug life. Because the time is limited, the treatment for PTSD was not fully explained. As this is a useful topic, VHATTC hopes that in the future we can organize a formal or face-to-face training on PTSD and its connection with SUD.

Overview: Methamphetamine is the number 1 drug threat ranked by the Dallas, El Paso, and Houston DEA Field Divisions. Cocaine is ranked the number 2 and number 3 threat by the DEA Field Divisions. Pharmaceuticals, benzodiazepines, hydrocodone, and muscle relaxants remain problematic. Compared to other NDEWS sites, the number of fentanyl items seized and identified is increasing, but the number of cases involving heroin and fentanyl in combination is low, while the number of cases involving fentanyl and other opiates is high. The recent increase in the number of tramadol cases involved with other opiates is also a concern. Heroin in Texas is either black tar heroin or powdered brown heroin (diluted with diphenhydramine or other filler), with some white Mexican/South American heroin seen. Of the top 25 items seized and identified in Texas laboratories reporting to the National Forensic Laboratory Information System (NFLIS), heroin ranks #4, at 5.2% of all items identified, and fentanyl ranks #21 (0.21% of all items identified). Cannabis indicators remain steady, with problems most often seen in the trafficking of decriminalized cannabis products from Colorado through Texas. Synthetic cannabinoid and cathinone poison calls have decreased but recent research by the author looking at treatment admissions and poison center call data has found statistically significant trends over time. The user population has changed from younger males hoping to use a cannabinoid that would not show positive in drug tests to an older population who are more likely to be experiencing homelessness and co-morbid psychological problems.

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
