Expert Insights

As the opioid crisis continues, we are now seeing the likes of deadly drug fentanyl now killing teens and young adults. As someone who has witnessed teen substance use and seen it ravage friends’ lives, I was pleasantly surprised to see what researchers have been doing in San Jose. Doctors working at a hospital in San Jose noted the shortage of treatment options for teens coming into the ED with opioid use issues. Feeling helpless, these doctors started a pilot program to start teens on treatment while they’re still in the ED, and their research shows this method of treatment can lead to longer term success. I certainly believe that had my friends had earlier intervention their substance use may not have progressed to the sometimes-deadly stages it did. I think these doctors’ are onto something special and I hope other EDs take on a similar program.

The third-largest city in California and the site of the first state capital, San Jose is home to diverse dining, recreation, nightlife, and attractions.1 But like so many other cities in the U.S., it is facing a growing opioid epidemic. Fentanyl-related deaths in Santa Clara County jumped from 11 in 2018 to 132 in 2021.2 The rising number of overdoses led the county to declare a public health crisis and increase its behavioral health services department budget by $4.6 million for mental health and substance use programs. With 47 accredited alcohol and drug rehab centers in San Jose, addiction treatment is within reach.3
