Sumrok is also one of the first physicians in the U. Sumrok, a family physician and former U. Treat people with respect instead of blaming or shaming them. Listen intently to what they have to say. Integrate the healing traditions of the culture in which they live. Use prescription drugs, if necessary. And integrate adverse childhood experiences science: Learning about ACEs more than two years ago was a big turning point for his understanding of addictions, explains Sumrok.
But that was exactly right. He also practices it every day, by integrating ACEs assessments for all patients in his clinics. He currently has about patients who are addicted, most to opioids heroin and prescription pain relievers, including oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, and fentanyl. Sumrok knows that score says a lot about their health and ability to cope: Other types of childhood adversity can also include being homeless, living in a war zone, being an immigrant, moving many times, witnessing a sibling being abused, witnessing a father or other caregiver or extended family member being abused, involvement with the criminal justice system, attending a school that enforces a zero-tolerance discipline policy, etc.
Having an ACE score of 4 nearly doubles the risk of heart disease and cancer. It increases the likelihood of becoming an alcoholic by percent and the risk of attempted suicide by percent. To calculate your ACE and resilience scores, go to: High ACE scores also relate to addiction: Compared with people who have zero ACEs, people with ACE scores are two to four times more likely to use alcohol or other drugs and to start using drugs at an earlier age.
People with an ACE score of 5 or higher are seven to 10 times more likely to use illegal drugs, to report addiction and to inject illegal drugs.
An ACE score of 4 that includes divorce, physical abuse, an incarcerated family member and a depressed family member has the same statistical health consequences as an ACE score of 4 that includes living with an alcoholic, verbal abuse, emotional neglect and physical neglect. In the s, PTSD was defined as a result of trauma that was outside the realm of normal experience.
My efforts are around helping people to see the connections, and that their experiences are predictable and normal. And the longer the experiences last, the bigger the effect. Post-traumatic stress is a brain adaptation.
This is what happens when a person sees Sumrok for the first time: For example, this morning, I saw a woman and she reported an ACE score of 1 on the survey.
Then, when I asked her the questions, she reported nine out of He explains the science of adverse childhood experiences to them, and how their addictions are a normal — and a predictable — result of their childhood trauma. He explains what happens in the brain when they experience toxic stress, how their amygdala is their emotional fuse box. For people who are addicted to opioids, he prescribes buprenorphine one of the brand names: Suboxone , which helps them to withdraw from opioids and to keep their job, or return to work.
For most people, the drug is less addictive than other opioids. For people who are addicted to alcohol, he prescribes naltrexone one of the brand names: They also participate in group therapy. Talking with others who have the same experiences helps each person normalize their own experiences. Sumrok often quotes Forest Gump: He also encourages them to integrate other rituals into their lives, such as walking 30 minutes a day or other exercise, joining a step group or finding a path to encourage a spiritual awakening.
His goal is for them to not have to use buprenorphine, but he knows that because of the number and duration of their ACEs, and the paucity of resilience factors provided to them when they were children, many will need continual support. He helps them learn how to integrate that support into their lives. Although Sumrok thinks his approach benefits his patients, he knows he needs data to prove it.
After tracking down those who were, most had good reasons, such as a man whose arm and shoulder were in a new cast after surgery repairing an injury, and he was taking a narcotic. She and her research assistant will de-identify the records, so that all information is anonymous, and then collect the data. He began using drugs off and on during his 20s. I thought I had to have them to function. About two years ago, Sumrok asked him to fill out the ACE survey. He had never connected experiences in his childhood with using drugs as an adult.
His sisters were adults and out on their own by then. But now he has a better understanding of what it was like to be a year-old in the late s and involved in the drug and party scene then, as his parents were. We only live seven miles apart, and I barely saw them twice a year, if that. But now I have my wife back. And I see my parents and sisters all the time.
John sees Sumrok once a month now. He participates in group therapy, where they can safely talk about their ACE scores without having to get into specifics. He checks in with Sumrok, who renews his prescription. We feel very comfortable with him. I trust him fully. And he trusts me. It took five or six months to build that trust. The more I met with him, the more I realized that he was really concerned about me. He wants to help people. Let him train more doctors in the procedures he uses.
Sumrok was the only physician who would take his insurance. Big filled out the ACE survey in the waiting room, but reported his score as a two.
Then Sumrok went through the survey with him, and Mr. Big, who is a single father of two children, five and six years old. I could see why I related to narcotics and stuff. It was the only place I had to turn. I started taking opiates when I was 11 or 12 years old. I was playing football, and broke my ankle. They gave me painkillers that made me feel like Superman.
Methadone made him nod off or feel high, and the people at the clinic treated him as if he was a number, or just there for the drugs. He just wants to live a normal life. What does a normal life mean? I can fit in with society and not be high off my mind. I can wake up every day and do stuff. I never knew that first grade and kindergarten had homework that was so complicated. And between and , Tennessee saw a More than 1, people died from opioid overdoses in , and tens of thousands of people lead desperate lives, most of them unknowingly fueled by their childhood experiences.
Dan Sumrok is just one doctor, in one part of the country. By doing what Dr. When I developed the Center for Addiction Science, it had to be like a cancer center, it had to be multi-disciplinary. In the old days, we thought people who had addictions were weak in the moral department.
Neither does criminalizing addictions. Stigma drives problems underground, says Stern, instead of driving them to a solution. The center is taking an integrated approach to using research and education to help people in all possible ways, from physiology to genetics to counseling.
Stern believes that every physician should know about ACEs science, which is one of the reasons he chose Sumrok to lead the center, along with his willingness to be creative and seek solutions across disciplines. We should develop solutions that are scalable. Tracing the Roots of Violence , which was published in , to give a presentation. Wiley; it was published in The things that have happened to kids — as well as to many people who come into the health care system — are out of their control, says Stewart.
When they can pop their head out of the water and get a breath, and see outstretched hands, a life preserver, a life boat, that changes their entire perspective. The people whom we treat know nothing. That takes a bit of humility on the part of a physician, and an understanding that we are partners in helping a person heal. He and others at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center have an opportunity to educate young physicians outside the state, too.
The foundation oversees the addiction medicine fellowships at 46 medical schools across the country. In addition, the foundation will be developing some accreditation guidelines so that all fellows receive the latest and best education in addiction medicine.
