Are we losing a generation to opioids?

It's time to end the stigma and elevate Substance Use Disorders (SUD) to chronic illnesses, just like diabetes and heart disease.


Here's how...

Substance Use Disorders (SUD) assessment tools have been limited ...until now.

  • SUD have been assessed and treated as acute illnesses, overlooking well-known treatment-informing research.

  • By ignoring enduring risk factors, current tools are unable to predict the likelihood of developing SUD, and have no role in prevention.

  • Since they don't offer lifelong illness severity information, they can't predict sustained remission.

  • Level of care placement and pain management strategies are based on acute illnesses instead of enduring risk factors.

  • Current answers don't differentiate which medication and duration fit which clients.

  • The more comprehensive assessments are inefficient and less accessible.

  • Treatment programs cannot adequately evaluate their effectiveness without factoring in their clients' lifelong risk levels.

McRISC, Inc.'s new assessment tool asks the necessary questions to treat SUD effectively.

  • The Comprehensive Risk-Informed screen offers the first acute and chronic illness-driven SUD assessment to provide both DSM-V and evidence-based lifetime risk factors for greatly improved prevention, referral and treatment guidance.

  • Available online 24/7, can be completed in 10 minutes, and enables access to SUD assessment and treatment across cultural, geographic, and economic barriers, including the homeless.

  • Its BUILD Model shifts the focus to a chronic illness paradigm, including Blueprint (genetics/epigenetics), User traits, Injured developing brain, Life stress/trauma, and Damage from use.

  • Targets level of care placement based on multiple variables and risk factors, including detox, plus support group duration.

  • Recommends medication selection and minimum duration.

  • Brings more primary care providers into the fight by giving them an assessment and treatment guide based on the most current research.

  • Replaces the revolving acute illness door with a longer, life-saving view.

Widespread adoption of McRISC will stem the tide of addiction

and help end the opioid epidemic.
