10 The Call for Effective Public Policy The ineffectiveness and harm of public policy based on slogans of fear, stigma, presumption, and prejudice Need for public policy that based on science, focuses on treatment and strengthens families

11 Addiction Here s What We Know 1.Addiction is a brain disease 2.Addiction can be managed successfully; treatment helps regain areas of life function 3.Timely access to effective treatment helps many but not all parents reunify with their children 4.Outcomes to prove treatment works and saves money

12 Child-well-being occurs in the context of family relationships 90% of children in substantiated abuse and neglect cases either stay home or go home Impact of substance use combined with added trauma of separation due to outhome custody = severe disruption of relationships Child Well-Being and Family Relationships

13 13

14 Substance use and child maltreatment are often multi-generational problems that can only be addressed through a coordinated approach across multiple systems to address needs of both parents and children. Cross-System Collaboration Here s What We Know 14

15 How Collaborative Policy and Practice Impacts Recovery 5Rs Remain at home Reunification Recidivism Re-entry

16 Opiate and Prescription Drug Abuse: Current Trends, Future Opportunities 16

17 The Opportunities Demystifying myths is an important start stigma as a real barrier. Allow science to guide policy and practice the science of MAT Cross-system collaboration is critical Multiple intervention points exist

18 Number of ED Visits Trends in Emergency Department Visits Involving the Nonmedical Use of Opioid Pain Relievers: ED visits involving the misuse or abuse of opioid pain relievers rose 183% from 2004 to Source: 2011 SAMHSA Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) 18

19 Overall Female Treatment Admissions for Other Opiates* as Primary Substance of Abuse % % % % Retrieved 09/05/13 from *Other opiates includes non-prescription use of methadone, codeine, morphine, oxycodone, hydromorphone, meperidine, opium, and other drugs with morphine-like effects. 19

20 Why the Closed Doors? Stigma Four Factors 1. Misconception as a moral weakness or willful choice 2. Separation from rest of health care 3. Language mirrors and perpetuates stigma 4. Criminal justice system and medical/ treatment systems disagree on treatment approaches Source Olsen and Shafstein, JAMA, 2014

21 Opiates During Pregnancy 8

22 PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS Counseling targets the cortex PHYSICAL EFFECTS Medication affects the limbic system

23 Different Populations of Women Can Give Birth to an Infant with NAS Symptoms* 1. Women with chronic pain or other medical condition maintained on medicines 2. Women actively abusing or dependent on opioids (e.g., untreated substance use disorder) Includes heroin users Misuse own prescribed narcotics for acute or chronic pain Misuse of non-prescribed opioids diverted from legitimate sources from friend of family member Misuse of opioids obtained through illicit means (purchased, theft) *Groups may overlap, adapted from Dr. Cece Spitznas, White House Office of National Drug Control Policy 15

24 Different Populations of Women Can Give Birth to an Infant with NAS Symptoms* (Cont d) 3. Women in recovery from opioid addiction maintained on methadone through OPT or buprenorphine through office based prescribing *Groups may overlap, adapted from Dr. Cece Spitznas, White House Office of National Drug Control Policy 16

25 Neonate Withdrawal Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) In chronically opioid exposed newborns, norepinephrine rebound produces symptoms of gastrointestinal and motoric hyper-arousal after birth as opioids are no longer being administered through the umbilical connection to the mother and are metabolized 40-60% of exposed babies have NAS symptoms Research cannot predict which babies will experience NAS 17

26 Opiate and Prescription Drug Abuse: Implications for Child Welfare 26

27 Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) Since 1974, CAPTA has been part of the federal government s effort to help states improve their practices in preventing and responding to child abuse and neglect. CAPTA provides grants to states to support innovations in state child protective services (CPS) and communitybased preventive services, as well as research, training, data collection, and program evaluation. 22

28 CAPTA Focuses on Four Elements of Substance Exposed Infants Identifying infants affected by illegal substance use or withdrawal symptoms or FASD Implementing the requirement that health care providers involved in the delivery or care of such identified infants notify the child protective services system of such conditions Developing a plan of safe care Addressing the needs of these infants 23

29 For the child: A five-point framework that addresses screening, assessment, referral and engagement across all stages of development For the mother: The whole perinatal picture - before, during, after pregnancy Multiple Intervention Points Prepregnancy Promote awareness Prenatal Birth Neo-natal Screening and referrals for services CAPTA, 2010 Testing for substance exposure Immediate postnatal services for newborn and families Childhood, Adolescence Ongoing services for children and families

30 Multiple Intervention Points 1. Objective 2. Policy Implications 3. Key Questions to Ask Please see Handout 30

31 MAT/NAS Policy and Practice Considerations Consistent screening and assessment of opiate addiction and other substance use during pregnancy for Medicaid-covered births Engaging pregnant women with opiate addiction in treatment services and/or prenatal care Availability of substance abuse treatment programs for opioid addiction Availability of specialized programs that serve both mother and infant together and enable them to remain together Using levers of Medicaid to ensure availability of medication-assisted treatment 31

32 2014 We can no longer say We don t know what to do. 37

33 5 Questions for State Governments 1. What is the scale of parental substance abuse and how does its prevalence affect children and state spending? 2. How effective are current state efforts to reduce parental substance abuse and its impact on children? 3. How can the most successful responses to parental substance abuse be scaled up to achieve larger effects on child and family well-being? 4. How can cost savings be captured when they take time to achieve and often benefit agencies that do not fund those programs? 5. How can the barriers that prevent collaborative efforts among state agencies be overcome to achieve results that no single agency can achieve by itself with its own resources? Please see Handout 38

34 Another Opportunity Availability of in-depth technical assistance focused on substanceexposed infants Six states Applications available: August 2014 Contact National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare for more information 39
