"We don’t know the true scope of the problem because we don’t effectively record cancer diagnosis among firefighters, the medical and research director at Sanibel Island’s Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), Nelson went on the offensive, New Hampshire, was first elected to the House in 2014 and has been a dominant voice in the debate over how to address the crisisThese are just three examples of the thousands of Minnesotans and their families who have been ravaged by the state’s growing opioid epidemicA flood of pillsLast year more than 35 million prescriptions were written for opioids in Minnesota state data show That’s enough for roughly 63 percent of the population to have a bottle of the powerful narcoticsOpioids like hydrocodone and oxycodone which are commonly prescribed to treat acute and chronic pain have become so ubiquitous that their misuse has led to addictions in Minnesotans of all stripesPrescription opioids killed 186 residents in 2016 accounting for more than half the state’s opioid-related overdose deaths All drug overdoses killed a total of 637 Minnesotans last year more than car accidents and nearly six times more than in 2000The epicenter for Minnesota’s opiate prescriptions is just 100 miles north of the Twin Cities in Aitkin Kanabec and Mille Lacs counties Last year enough opioid prescriptions were written in each of those counties for every resident to have one state data showYet opioid use in Minnesota remains below the national average and pales in comparison with Ohio and Kentucky where the drugs are prescribed twice as often federal data show Overall opioid prescriptions declined statewide in 2016 dropping nearly 9 percent from the year before Since 2014 they are down just slightlyThe prescription numbers were eye-opening for Cynthia Bennett Aitkin County director of health and human services who said the state data gave her county’s health officials their first detailed look at what they suspected was a growing problem They’ve responded by working with prescribers and patients to reduce the use of opioids and provide alternatives for pain management"Once we became aware there is a problem and have data to back it up we can move forward with solutions" Bennett saidThe rate of opioid prescriptions per resident has routinely been higher in rural Minnesota than in the Twin Cities metro area state data show Health officials suspect the difference is due to a variety of factors including the more limited availability of illicit drugsThe growing use of opioids in Native American communities also plays a role in the disparity of prescription rates across the state American Indians are nearly five times more likely than white Minnesotans to die of an opioid overdose while black residents are twice as likely"It has become an epidemic" said Johnson who added that he believes poverty and a lack of opportunities have played a role in the rising rates of addiction among fellow Native AmericansThe main reservation of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe which is located near the counties with Minnesota’s highest opioid prescription rates has seen opioid overdoses skyrocket in recent months Late this summer there were 29 overdoses on or near the reservation within a month compared with 44 overdoses reported to tribal police in all of 2016Melanie Benjamin chief executive of the Mille Lacs Band recently asked federal authorities for help because tribal leaders have been unable to resolve a dispute with Mille Lacs County that led to the end of a joint-powers law enforcement agreement Tribal leaders have already worked to limit opioid prescriptions from reservation clinics and make naloxone an opioid antidote more widely available but they need more help"We are in a public-safety crisis people are dying and we need extra help right now" Benjamin wrote in a recent Facebook postTracking prescriptionsMinnesota has more information than ever before about opioid prescriptions but the data is still incomplete The Legislature created a Prescription Monitoring Program in 2007 to track dangerous drugs but to protect patient privacy only a year’s worth of data was retained at any one timeInformation is now available beginning with 2014 because state law was temporarily changed to give health officials more data to study the opioid crisis In 2019 when the law reverts back prescription records will again be discarded after a yearAnd while pharmacies regularly report the pills they dispense the state just started requiring prescribers to sign up for the monitoring system They are not mandated to use it before they give a patient opioids and fewer than 50 percent of prescribers doCody Wiberg executive director of the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy said it has been hard to persuade lawmakers to change rules about monitoring prescriptions because the system includes individuals’ sensitive health information"It’s been very controversial and it will remain controversial" Wiberg said But he believes the incremental changes have helpedHealth officials are more aware of and are working with top opioid prescribers They also have more information to combat "doctor shopping" when a patient gets multiple prescriptions from multiple sourcesCharging manufacturersState and federal leaders think more could be doneState representative and grieving father Baker expects the 2018 legislative session to include debates about how Minnesota can address the opioid crisisBaker is backing "opioid stewardship" legislation that he says has bipartisan support It would impose a fee for each unit of opioid prescribed in Minnesota and that money would be used to mitigate the hazardous effects of the drug — including combating addiction and addressing environmental contamination when pills get into state waters through the sewer systemBaker noted that opioid manufacturers face a wave of legal actions from public officials nationwide claiming they misled doctors and consumers about the dangers of their drugs"Drug manufacturers tricked the medical community into thinking this wasn’t addictive" Baker said "What has never been done before in Minnesota is charging them for the cleanup"Baker also says he wants doctors to have more information about patients’ medical history before prescribing them an opioid The key to that effort is connecting the prescription monitoring system to doctors’ electronic medical recordsThat would make the system quicker and easier to use hopefully increasing prescribers’ participation and decreasing doctor shopping"It has to be treated like (doctors) are prescribing synthetic heroin because that’s what it is" Baker said of opioidsThese reforms can be accomplished without jeopardizing patients’ privacy Baker saidUS Sen Amy Klobuchar D-Minn, Kura, SoCalGas reaffirms our prior commitment to mitigate the environmental impact of the actual amount of natural gas released
