Description

With the current opioid overdose epidemic in full flood, Medication-Assisted Treatment is on the horizon of every treatment provider. However, opioid maintenance therapy with medications such as naltrexone, Subutex and methadone challenge both the treatment philosophy and delivery systems of many programs. We will examine the philosophy, research, medications, and evidence-based practices for effective MAT.

Learning Objectives
  • Articulate the philosophical dialectic between "abstinence-based" and "medication-assisted" treatment modalities.
  • Identify the FDA/ DEA-approved and experimental medications for assisting patients in recovery from alcohol, opioid and stimulant use disorders.
  • Become familiar with three evidence based practices either designed for or adaptable for treating patients in recovery from alcohol, opioid and stimulant use disorders .
