When someone mentions “Peer Pressure” we tend to think of being offered drugs or alcohol as a teen.

But that’s a massive oversimplification of the multiple forms of #PeerPressure, direct & indirect, and how it can affect us as adults, specifically with regards to #SubstanceAbuse
Peer Pressure exists our entire lives, and it isn’t as simple as D.A.R.E. makes it seem.

With Substance Abuse Disorder, peer pressure can be the onset, perpetuate use, or cause a relapse. And it’s typically not someone “making” you; we react to social situations subconsciously.
One way in which peer pressure can contribute is via “Modeling Behavior.”

When we feel left out by not doing the same thing as everyone else, we can “feel” the pressure to partake. For example, a recovering alcoholic may feel the need to drink at a happy hour or a party.

NEW Analysis: Among people with employer coverage, nearly 1 in 5 inpatient admissions includes a claim from an out-of-network provider, putting them at risk for potentially high out-of-pocket costs. healthsystemtracker.org/brief/an-analy… @PetersonCHealth
Even when enrollees choose in-network facilities, a meaningful share of inpatient admissions result in the patient receiving a claim from an out-of-network provider.
Emergency care is much more likely to include a claim from an out-of-network provider. This is true whether or not enrollees use in-network facilities.
