The New Face of Opioid Addiction - Nashville Medical News

Maria Russo-Appel, MD
Maria Russo-Appel, MD, medical director for CleanSlate Addiction Treatment Centers Eastern Division, said patients who stop medications have an 80 percent chance of relapse. "Graduating from treatment is really an old concept in addiction medicine so we don't frame our programs around that," she said. Like Sledge and Lee, Russo-Appel said the stigma around addiction is changing. Russo-Appel said stopping the addiction cycle begins with prevention efforts as early as grammar school. "We need more awareness programs and access to care," she said.

Maria Russo-Appel, M.D., Chief of Behavioral Health Services at Wing Memorial Hospital in Palmer, said she sees more people feeling down in the dumps and feeling a little more depressed than usual.
She also said she sees more headaches, more anxiety, and more sleeping disturbances because the expectations and the fantasy of the season can cause stress. She has a name for it. Dr. Russo-Appel said, "The Norman Rockwell Syndrome, that everything is going to be beautiful, perfect, everyone is going to get along. Dr. Russo-Appel said, "I think there is a connection to the commercialization of Christmas and the holidays in general. We're bombarded with the images of the holidays early on sometimes in September and October." She suggests you reconnect with spiritual traditions, volunteer to help others and personally, set boundaries. Dr. Russo-Appel said, "You're not going to resolve conflicts during the holidays and you're not going to change that person during the holidays. Minimize your contract with them if you need to." Also keep you expectations within reach. Dr. Russo-Appel said, "It's important to keep them very realistic. I usually encourage people not to use the word perfect but good enough." One other very important thing to remember is next year will be here before you know it. Dr. Russo-Appel said, "January 2nd always comes.
