DESCRIPTION Xylazine (or “tranq”) is a non-opioid sedative and tranquilizer only approved for use in veterinary medicine. However, over the past several years, human consumption of xylazine has begun rapidly increasing. Although initially only identified in illicit drug supplies in limited areas, xylazine has been found in 48 states as of April 2023. Xylazine is frequently, though not exclusively, used in conjunction with opioids, particularly fentanyl—due to xylazine’s ability to prolong their effects. Xylazine use presents many potential dangers to people, including an increased risk of overdose and the development of necrotizing tissue damage. This webinar will bring together experts from across disciplines to discuss the history of xylazine use, what is known about its current scope of use and consequences, the effects of xylazine on people, and wound care and other harm reduction strategies. It will also offer an opportunity for participants to ask questions in a roundtable panel discussion format. OBJECTIVES Describe Xylazine and its history of use and consequences. Explain how harm reduction strategies need to be adapted for complications in Xylazine use. Describe the current trends that detail the scope and the extent of the Xylazine issue. PRESENTERS Jason Bienert, RN, CWCN Josh Esrick, MPP   DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENCY (DEA) GUEST:  Gail Poirier, Section Chief, Strategic Intelligence Section (NIT) Jaclyn Iera, Program Manager, Office of Forensic Sciences   SAMHSA Jeanne Tuono, Assistant Regional Director (Region 3)

The National Alliance on Mental Illness recognizes that current environmental factors are traumatizing people of color, which as a risk factor can also initiate or increase substance use and potentially developing trauma and stress complications. Provider bias in stigmatic language or other microaggressions affect a client’s capacity to respond to clinical interventions and are often identified in research, as components of poor behavioral health outcomes. Practitioners who integrate cultural humility in practice are able to support highest levels of patient centered culturally informed care.   This interactive virtual training will review practical tools and strategies for providers to identify and diffuse personal bias, dynamics of culture in substance use treatment and how to facilitate and align cultural humility with other culturally responsive strategies to increase patient wellness for racial and ethnic populations.

This Supplemental Guide is developed as a supplement to Your Guide to Integrating HCV Services into Opioid Treatment Programs. The purpose of these two resources is to build the capacity of publicly funded Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) to integrate Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) prevention and treatment services into their programs. The opioid epidemic has resulted in significant increases in HCV among people who inject drugs, accounting for 23% of new infections. HCV is completely curable and testing and treatment are the path to cure. OTPs play a critical role in comprehensive approaches to addressing HCV and this guide is one tool to help.

In recent years, there has been growing support for a harm reduction approach to drug policy, which emphasizes reducing some of the negative consequences associated with drug use through a variety of public health measures. Historically, this approach has been a core value of syringe service programs, expanding into other settings particularly as rising overdose deaths have made educating people about overdose risks and distributing naloxone more urgent. This two-part workshop will explore how harm reduction is evolving, different interpretations of what harm reduction is (or isn’t), and ways to build bridges between harm reduction services and the continuum of care for people who use drugs. Discussion topics will include how harm reduction providers are offering or connecting participants to various types of treatment, broadly defined, and how treatment providers are incorporating harm reduction strategies into their services.

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).
