About the Course:
This TIP is about using FDA approved medications to treat Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Part 3 of this TIP describes general principles of OUD pharmacotherapy and discusses medication formulations, indications, and dosing for the three Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications used to treat OUD—methadone, naltrexone, and buprenorphine. Part 3 also discusses patient management and monitoring in outpatient settings other than opioid treatment programs (OTPs) as well as medical management of patients with OUD in hospital settings.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (TIP 63)-Pharmacotherapy in OUD created by SAMHSA in 2020.
