Jun 19 - U.S. death rates from suicides, alcohol and drug overdoses reach all-time high

Premature deaths from suicide, alcohol and drug overdose have reached an all-time high, and U.S. states are losing ground on key measures related to life expectancy, according to a report by the Commonwealth Fund, a healthcare advocacy group.

The report offers a state “scorecard” based on 47 different metrics, including death rates, healthcare access, quality of care, obesity and smoking.

“What we found is that each of these causes is affecting states very differently,” David Radley, a senior scientist with the Commonwealth Fund and the lead author of the report, told ABC News.

Although the report has pinpointed regional differences, Radley said, “we don’t know exactly why in some parts of the country people are more susceptible” to one form of deadly behavior over another.

(MORE: Nebraska's AG is lone holdout in pursuing opioid cases)
deaths a*sociated with alcohol abuse and suicide disproportionately affect Western states, while New England, the mid-Atlantic, and the Southeast states report more deaths from drug overdose, he said. Opioid abuse, as well as the rise of lethal synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, has fueled this crisis.

West Virginia has been hit the hardest, “as it had the highest rate of death from drug overdoses in 2017 and the steepest increase between 2005 and 2017, both in deaths from drug overdose and from alcohol abuse,” Susan Hayes, co-author of the report, said in an interview with ABC News.

In 2017, the average U.S. life expectancy fell about 0.1 from the previous year, to 78.6 years, according to the the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The drop was largely driven by a steady increase in deaths from drug overdoses and suicides.

U.S. overdose deaths linked to opioids like fentanyl increased more than 45 percent from 2016 to 2017, according to the CDC, and, between 1999 and 2017, there were more than 702,000 deaths from drug overdoses, 10% of which occurred in 2017.

Separately, suicide rates have increased by about 2 percent per year between 2006 and 2017, according to the CDC’s data.

Meanwhile, the progress of many states in expanding health care coverage and access, following the passage of the Affordable Care Act, has stalled and in some states access has even worsened. As Radley explained, having health insurance “creates a channel” through which people can gain access to care, and “reduces the financial burden to get care when you need it.”

States ranked lowest on the Scorecard also reported the highest rates of uninsured people.

(MORE: suicides, opioid overdose deaths push US life expectancy lower)
According to the report, a major cause in the decreased expansion of health insurance coverage and access is cost, especially in the context of slow income growth. Rising private health plan costs and high deductibles are linked to fewer people with insurance coverage.

These healthcare costs are also affecting those who do have insurance, “particularly for people who have health insurance through their employers,” noted Radley. As outlined in the report, families are paying more but getting less.

(MORE: Former Purdue Pharma CEO called opioid addicts 'victimizers' in 2001)
“The bottom line is that health insurance is the foundation for many of the services that are needed to combat the crisis, including access to the opioid reversal medication, naloxone, substance use disorder treatment, and mental health services,” says Hayes. Radley adds, “Health care access is the foundation for a high performing health care system.”

The report concludes that states must a*sume responsibility and partner with federal authorities in order to implement effective long-term solutions.

gotta take care of your mind and body, social media is a drug in itself, boxden is pretty toxic too if we're gonna keep it a buck. we all obviously have something in common if we're all on here posting, but still you see a lot of petty arguments and hate on here every day

would be dope if everyone could put aside the trolling and sh*t and use this as a platform to uplift and empower one another

boxden is the most toxic website ever. i wish there was a thread just for black empowerment and where n*ggas don't do nothing but uplift each other kind of like how the fitness thread is.

where any negitive comment or comment degrading somebody will get you banned or thrown out.

where it's just

black finincal courses

black history

black relationship advice

food


health
organic

sports etc.

news,entertainment etc.

Social Media a huge part. Ppl are LONELY man. Social Media is confirmation for them to accept their fake reality that everyone around them is perfect and the know inside that they're not.......its all a huge lie...........ppl dont connect physically anymore either b/c of the internet.

Its all one big lie where ppl pretending. Its like when women would get all self conscience cuz the cover girls on magazines have the perfect bodies when the average person got stretch marks and fat on them.

A huge lie where u see the best and can't compare to it.

That’s because we live in a society of cappers.

Wanna be everybody else but themselves and most of the people they look up to lives more broken then theirs. Social media is a gift and a curse. I’m super glad I grew up in a generation where we actually went outside and actually had to work for things. You tell a 18 no or that’s not gonna work they throw a fit and get all soft and screaming safe space and other foolishness. Thick skin is rare.

A bunch of broken homes are also the cause of a lot of this. Fatherless sons and daughters just doing the most seeking any type of attention. I had bout 4-5 moms growing up our neighborhoods were tight. Don’t even know your neighbors these days.
