Today, the Wall Street Journal reported the opioid crisis, already serious, has intensified during the coronavirus pandemic. Overdose deaths continue to rise alongside increasing stress due to the economic and emotional effects of COVI9-19.
Before the pandemic, we were already experiencing a staggering number of overdose deaths which have continued on an upward trend over the last few decades (below). Just last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that a staggering 72,000 Americans died of drug-related overdoses.
Now, states nationwide report rising fatalities according to new data collected by the Wall Street Journal.
There are a number of reasons why deaths are increasing: people in recovery are struggling to manage stress levels as less in-person support is available. People with substance use disorder are experiencing increased isolation due to social distancing. AA and other mutual-aid meetings have ceased and changed to online meetings, which significantly reduces the connection needed by many to sustain recovery. Some treatment providers have changed to telemedicine, significantly reducing the amount of addiction treatment available.
In a recent CDC survey, 13 percent of respondents reported that they were using increasing amount of substances to cope with stress related to the pandemic.
Clinical services manager at the non-profit group HIPS, in Washington DC — who provide services for people who use drugs — told the WSJ,
It’s a pretty stark reality here. We’ve lost a lot of clients, a lot of patients.”
