Rhode Island and the nation are experiencing an epidemic of opioid overdose and deaths as well as spiraling opioid addiction. It is now possible for qualified physicians to prescribe FDA-approved medications to treat opioid use disorder from office-based practices. This will greatly increase the access to treatment for opioid use disorder in affected individuals. This day long (8 hour) course will provide the training required by the Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 for office-based treatment of opioid use disorder. Physicians completing this course will be eligible for the necessary waiver to prescribe buprenorphine/naloxone in the treatment of opioid use disorder. Other healthcare providers attending will learn about this treatment and be a source of critically needed support of this practice.
The American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry is approved by the Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA) to provide the required eight-hour training that qualifies physicians for the waiver to prescribe Buprenorphine for treating opioid use disorders.
Who Should Attend:
Physicians, Psychiatrists, APRNs, Nurses, Counselors, Pharmacists, and Allied Health Professionals who may provide services to those receiving office-based treatment for opioid use disorder
To provide specific information on safe use of opioid medications including overdose prevention, the pharmacology and clinical use of buprenorphine, and resources needed to set up office-based treatment of opioid dependence.
This conference will be held at the Warren Alpert Medical School, Brown University
