THE KEY | Spring 2010

from the

About a year and a half ago we ran an article in The Key that warrants an update. It should not come as a surprise to anyone that our current military are returning from combat with high rates of mental and substance abuse disorders. Not since the Vietnam War have we witnessed such a dramatic increase in these problems, and of course, the system once again is not equipped or prepared to handle them. So how bad is it? Well, one study reported that one in eight military personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan from 2006 to 2008 was referred for counseling for alcohol problems after their post-deployment health assessments. And, while the military is trying to address this issue, many personnel

Executive Director

In the case of Vietnam, and now Iraq and Afghanistan, more military personnel will likely end up losing their lives to addiction and suicide than to combat. Long after wars are over, many of our brave military continue to suffer from things they saw or did; with alcohol, drugs and even death seeming for them to be their only way to escape. Regardless of the right or wrong of the current war or any past war, we owe those who serve our country everything possible to help them return to some level of normalcy. Please speak out to your elected officials and encourage them to do everything in their power to ensure the best treatment for our troops, and to do so without shame or reprisal. Push them to get past the stigma and to start treating these vets with the dignity and respect they deserve.

are reluctant to seek treatment because of the stigma associated with addiction and because they fear seeking help could hurt their careers. Some things never change. And it gets even worse, as another study reports a high incidence of violence and murder cases by post deployment soldiers being related to what has been referred to as "a mix of addiction problems, mental illness and leadership failures..." At one base, soldiers who committed murder "had a history of addiction problems, but fewer than half had received treatment." Another alarming, and yet not unexpected report shows that where many Vietnam Vets came home with heroin addiction, "today's returning soldiers are more likely to be addicted to prescription medications ­ the very opiates prescribed to them by the military to ease stress or pain ­ or stimulants used to remain alert in combat situations."

{ 45 Acts of Kindness }


ach time you donate to NCADA, you perform an Act of Kindness and "pay it forward." You help us change lives: · The high school teen who called 911 when her friend passed out from alcohol poisoning and credited TryPOD (Try Putting Off Drinking) for teaching her what to do; and · The young adult clean from heroin for one year due in part to our counselor's intervention. Just two examples of how your gifts "pay it forward." In honor of our 45th Anniversary, NCADA staff will "pay it forward" above and beyond our work. We each set a goal to perform 45 Acts of Kindness during 2010. A large vase in our lobby holds blue and clear marbles as visual reminders, and a journal records them. Here are just a few so far: · Made soup for grandpa · Knitted hat for sick friend · Shoveled neighbor's long driveway Imagine, 35 staff x 45 Acts of Kindness = 1,575 Acts of Kindness. We'll add a glass marble to recognize each donation we receive this year, your Acts of Kindness to us. Please consider becoming a monthly donor. 12 Gifts = 12 Acts of Kindness = 12 marbles added to our vase. We'll let you know how many marbles we collect at the end of the year. And, in the meantime, please stop by, read our journal, and help us fill the vase. With gratitude,

The Hallmark Hall of Fame movie When Love is Not Enough is based on William Borchert's book, The Lois Wilson Story -- When Love is Not Enough. Two-time Academy Award nominee Winona Ryder portrays Lois. This film depicts the dramatic and courageous love story of Lois and Bill Wilson and their battle with the disease of alcoholism, which lead to the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon. Sunday, April 25th @ 8:00 p.m. on CBS.

NCADA - St. Louis Area

Addiction Treatment in St. Louis - Then and Now...

national advocate. Hughes, also a recovering alcoholic, drafted a bill to provide help for alcoholics. The NCA network supported Hughes work, and in 1970, he successfully passed ground-breaking legislation known as the Hughes Act, mandating healthcare insurance reimburse for alcoholism For almost two decades, treatment, both private and publicly-funded, proliferated. In the late 1980's, managed care, a response by insurance providers to manage costs, began a process of methodically denying benefits for addiction treatment. The result was a decimation of private sector treatment. Without reimbursement, programs began closing, forcing the public care system to assume the primary responsibility of providing treatment. Despite these setbacks, there is room for cautious optimism in regards to the future of addiction treatment. Research is gradually allowing a greater understanding of brain chemistry, genetics and neurology, all of which should contribute to scientific improvements in the delivery of treatment for addiction disease. The Paul Wellstone Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act was passed by congress in 2009. If parity for mental health and addiction is included in healthcare reform, we will see improved reimbursement for treatment by insurance providers. Whatever happens, NCADA will continue to advocate for treatment in our state and in our region.


s our agency embarks upon its fortyfifth anniversary year, it's interesting to look at the many changes that have occurred since our inception in 1965. In 1945 a pioneering woman named Marty Mann, recognized as the first woman to get sober in A.A., with the support of Dr. Bob and Bill Wilson, established the National Council on Alcoholism, or NCA. As NCA's founder, Marty travelled the country convincing major cities to open up their own NCA affiliates. In 1965, several St. Louis individuals came together to create a local NCA as a resource that would educate the public about alcoholism and advocate for improved resources. The timing was right. Things were changing. Alcoholics Anonymous had helped create a new awareness and interest towards addressing alcoholism. The American Medical Association declared alcoholism to be a disease. NCA began calling for local efforts to provide help for alcoholics. At that time, treatment was virtually nonexistent. Things began to happen, albeit gradually. As the cause became better known, other pioneers such as Iowa's Senator Harold Hughes joined Marty Mann as another

treatment as it would any other medical malady. With reimbursement, treatment programs began to pop up all over the St. Louis area. Hospitals began to create their own treatment programs and independent companies such as Compcare, Raleigh Hills and Koala opened centers in the St. Louis area.

Back to the Basics of Recovery

New Additions to NCADA's Library

Pleasure Unwoven is a new film by Dr. Kevin McCauley, from the Institute for Addiction Study, which explores the question "Is Addiction Really a Disease?" Using the spectacular landscape of Utah to represent the anatomy of the brain, Dr. McCauley turns the complicated topic of neurophysiology into a beautiful journey that helps addicts and their family understand what has happens with addiction and that recovery is possible. Shame & Addiction, a classic film by John Bradshaw, explores the role of shame in the life of an addicted person. It is one of our most popular films on VHS, and it is now available on DVD as well.


n exciting and unique event that teaches twelve-step newcomers and veterans alike the history of how the twelve steps were originally implemented between sponsors and their sponsees will take place at St. John's Mercy Von Gontard Center Saturday, April 10th. Sponsored by FRESH Renewal Center and the NCADA, this forum has been held throughout the country and has received glowing reviews from participants. Please note: This event has limited seating and will be open to registrants on a first-come, firstserve basis. Please see Back to Basics flyer enclosed in this newsletter.

Daily Marijuana Use Could Cause Permanent Brain Damage

Animal studies showed that daily marijuana use could permanently alter serotonin and norepinephrine levels in the brain, raising the risk of depression and anxiety, according to researcher Gabriella Gobbi of McGill University. Gobbi studied the brain chemistry of 18 adolescent lab rats exposed daily to marijuana and found that they had decreased levels of mood-controlling serotonin and higher levels of the stress hormone norepinephrine. Gobbi said that the effects were magnified because the adolescent brain is still developing. "These permanent changes in the brain are also linked to certain mental illnesses, like schizophrenia," she said. Even when the cannabis use stopped at the end of adolescence, the changes were still detectable in adulthood. A future study will concentrate on adolescent marijuana use among humans. This study was published in the journal Neurobiology of Disease. Canadian Press | December 17, 2009

Survey Finds Widespread Prescription-Drug Abuse Among U.S. Troops

The Pentagon's health survey of more than 28,500 U.S. military in 2008 showed 22% of troops reporting prescription-drug abuse within the past year. Painkillers were the most commonly misused drugs. The findings show the continued toll on the military from fighting wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan since 2003. Those wars have required troops to serve multiple combat deployments. The survey also stated 60% of marines reported binge drinking in 2008. "We are aware that more prescription drugs are being used today for pain management and behavioral health issues," Brig. Gen. Colleen McGuire, director of the Army Suicide Prevention Task Force, said. "These areas of substance abuse along with increased use of alcohol concern us. Prescription drug abuse is an issue for American society as well, and we're looking at it from every possible angle," McGuire said. USA Today | Dec. 17, 2009

Marijuana Use Associated with Fondness for Songs with Pot References

According to a recent survey, ninth-grade students who listen to music with marijuana references are about twice as likely to use the drugs as peers who don't listen to such songs. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine surveyed 959 ninth-grade students who listened to an average of 21.8 hours of music weekly, and heard an average of 40 musical marijuana references daily. Lead researcher Brian Primack said, "Interestingly, we also found that exposure to marijuana in music was not associated with other high-risk behaviors, such as excessive alcohol consumption. This suggests that there is a real link between the marijuana lyrics and marijuana use." However, he added, "Although it may be that heavy exposure to music about marijuana causes marijuana smoking, it may also be that those who smoke marijuana seek out music with lyrics related to marijuana." LiveScience | December 22, 2009

SBIRT Proposed Accreditation Standards for Hospitals

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) proposed new hospital performance measures for screening, brief intervention, referral and treatment (SBIRT) of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. If required for accreditation, U.S. hospitals would implement programs to screen their patients for addiction problems, potentially providing a huge boost in the numbers of individuals referred to treatment and, advocates say, saving money for the healthcare system in the process. "It could do more to medicalize substance-abuse problems than all the urging and pleading we've done for the past 30 years," said Larry Gentilello, M.D., trauma surgeon and a professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. | September 11, 2009
