On January 14, 2020, it was determined that the opioid crisis continues to be a public health emergency (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services). In order to address this crisis, the nation needs to understand the lived experiences for opioid use survivors. Researchers interviewed eight participants who were in recovery from an opioid addiction. Interviews were a semi-structured format to gain specific information about the participants’ lived experiences. Information learned from these interviews were organized and analyzed to identify community resource strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for individuals on the road to recovery from an opioid addiction. These findings can aide communities to develop prevention and intervention strategies specifically targeting people most intimately impacted by an opioid addiction.

Legacy Intervention (LI) has been shown to be helpful for the patients with co-occurring disorders by alleviating life concerns such as social isolation, discrimination and financial worries. However, legacy dosage has not been concretely measured. The purpose of this study is to illustrate how to use a clinical measure in a LI project to highlight individualized legacy dosage throughout the treatment process in a partial hospital program. This measure aims to empower patients to appreciate life-stress management for treatment success. Among 37 patients in LI treatment, legacy dosage is measured by patients’ exposure to positive support concretely marked on an 11-point individualized self-anchored scale after each session. These patients connected the points on a graph with their reported exploration after describing their expectations. Legacy is defined by the patients as reported as a memorable set of past coping successes to explicitly share with others. Due to its individualized nature, a composite case from these cases is used to illustrate how legacy dosage is measured to provide a place for patients to disclose their treatment expectations.

Vaping is a new development within the field of radiology and medicine at large with respect to the development of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) from Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) containing Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS). Similar to the initial marketing of cigarettes, vaping was advertized as being a safe product with limited ingredients. ENDS products were eventually touted as being superior to cigarettes because of the aforementioned limited ingredients compared to the numerous carcinogenic elements found in cigarettes. The four typical constituents are propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and a flavorant. The variety of flavors is particularly marketable towards the youth and within the past year, an increasing volume of patients have been admitted secondary to respiratory symptoms associated with vaping. Four computed tomography (CT) patterns of vaping induced lung injury have been identified and include acute eosinophilic pneumonia, diffuse alveolar damage, organizing pneumonia and lipoid pneumonia.
