Opioid Command Center Presents Status Update on Key Initiatives Amid Report on Overdose Hospitalizations

first_imgOpioid Command Center Presents Status Update on Key Initiatives Amid Report on Overdose Hospitalizations Press Release,  Public Health,  Substance Use Disorder Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf’s Opioid Command Center today announced accomplishments in the continuing battle against the heroin and opioid crisis amid the release of the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council’s (PHC4) report, “Hospitalizations for Opioid Overdose – 2016 to 2017.”“Giving people the opportunity to get into treatment makes recovery possible,” Gov. Wolf said. “Overdose survivors getting to the hospital means more lives are being saved and more people are getting into treatment. Our efforts to increase treatment options, decrease overprescribing, and save lives by making Naloxone more accessible and available, while focusing on transitioning those saved to treatment, are making an impact for many Pennsylvanians. But clearly there is still work to do.”According to the PHC4 report, hospitalizations from overdoses from pain medications decreased by just over 2 percent and those from heroin overdoses increased at a slower rate (12.7 percent) between 2016 and 2017 than they had in the five previous years (24 percent on average). This slower rate is a step in the right direction.Disaster declaration initiatives include increasing access to and availability of naloxone, getting more people into treatment, and saving lives across the commonwealth. As of 2017, Single County Authorities (SCAs) are required to report on attempts at a warm hand-off, a direct referral from treatment for an overdose in an emergency department to treatment for a substance use disorder. In 2017, 51 percent of warm hand-off attempts resulted in a referral to treatment.The Opioid Command Center also released a status update on key disaster declaration initiatives, put in place as part of Gov.
