This course is based on three NIDA Notes articles. NIDA Notes is a large collection of brief, relevant articles focusing on current drug abuse treatment evidence.
Study Finds Withdrawal No Easier With Ultrarapid Opiate Detox
explains how three serious adverse events among 35 ultrarapid procedures were all related to unreported preexisting medical conditions.
Network Therapy Enhances Office-Based Buprenorphine Treatment Outcomes
relates how network therapy—an office-based behavioral treatment that engages family and close friends in the recovery process—enhances abstinence among outpatients being treated with buprenorphine for opioid addiction.
Institute of Medicine Report Recommends NIDA Research Agenda For New Addiction Therapies
describes how the National Research Council’s Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends studies that can be used to establish clear guidelines for use of the new therapies in circumstances that are inherently coercive or nonconsensual such as in the criminal justice system, child welfare cases, or the protective immunization of minor children.
All three articles are contained in one PDF.
