We are looking for leaders and change makers 🙌

The Elevate Youth California statewide program is supporting community leaders who are addressing substance use and mental health disorders by investing in the youth leadership development and activism of youth of color and LGBTQ+ youth ages 12 to 26. USC is currently recruiting fellows to lead work with Oakland and Vallejo based partners to help address city specific issues in underestimated communities. Through the fellowship, USC Fellows will build leadership, public speaking and other foundational skills while finding strategic solutions to city specific issues through research and hands-on experience like access to influential decision makers.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse supports research to develop new medicines and delivery systems to treat opioid use disorder and other substance use disorders, as well as other complications of substance use (including withdrawal and overdose), to help people choose treatments that are right for them.

FDA-approved medications for opioid addiction, overdose, and withdrawal work in various ways.

Opioid Receptor Agonist: Medications attach to opioid receptors in the brain to block withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Opioid Receptor Partial Agonist: Medications attach to and partially activate opioid receptors in the brain to ease withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
Opioid Receptor Antagonist: Medications block activity of opioid receptors in the brain to prevent euphoric effects (the high) of opioids and alcohol and help reduce cravings.
Adrenergic Receptor Agonist: A medication that attaches to and activates adrenergic receptors in the brain and helps alleviate withdrawal symptoms.

In 2016, synthetic opioids (primarily illegal fentanyl) passed prescription opioids as the most common drugs involved in overdose deaths in the United States.

This infographic summarizes mortality data from 2010-2016. Please note, 15 to 25 percent of death certificates analyzed did not indicate the type of drug involved in the overdose. This was because drug tests were not conducted or there was a failure to record test results on death certificates.

In 2016, 42,249 drug overdose deaths involved opioids. Of those, 45.9% involved synthetic opioids. 17,087 overdose deaths involved prescription opioids. Of those, 23.7% involved synthetic opioids. 15,469 overdose deaths he**in. Of those, 37.4% involved synthetic opioids. 10,375 overdose deaths involved co***ne. Of those, 40.3% involved synthetic opioids. 7,542 overdose deaths involved psychostimulants. Of those, 13.8% involved synthetic opioids. 10,684 overdose deaths involved benzodiazepines. Of those, 31.0% involved synthetic opioids. 4,812 overdose deaths involved antidepressants. Of those, 20.8% involved synthetic opioids. 1,877 overdose deaths involved antipsychotics and neuroleptics. Of those, 20.5% involved synthetic opioids. 409 overdose deaths involved barbiturates. Of those, 21.5% involved synthetic opioids. 543 overdose deaths involved other illicit drugs. Of those, 26.5% involved synthetic opioids.

Deaths are not mutually exclusive. Deaths involving more than one drug or drug class are counted multiple times.

Among the 42,249 opioid-related overdose deaths in 2016, 19,413 involved synthetic opioids, 17,087 involved prescription opioids, and 15,469 involved he**in.
