Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) or Medication Assisted TreatmentOpioid Use DisordersThese medications help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms that come from stopping opioid use.
MOUD/MAT provides a safe, controlled level of medication to overcome the use of a problem opioid.
The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 allows prescribers who complete additional training to obtain a waiver to use buprenorphine for the treatment of OUDsOur program can help providers determine if a particular patient is a good candidate for office-based care.
Some patients report that they prefer to receive MOUD in a physician’s office. This is often seen as a more confidential way to seek treatment and can help patients to avoid exposure to others in the drug culture. This form of treatment can also help patients who want treatment that does not interfere with their full time employment and family commitments. In some cases, receiving MOUD from a primary care physician may improve a patient’s engagement in treatment for other health conditions.
