Office-Based Buprenorphine Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder, Second Edition
Qualifies for 8 hours of training required for the Buprenorphine Waiver. A thorough reading of the material covered in the chapters of this book and successful completion of the online test will allow qualified clinicians to apply for a waiver to their Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) license, and thus to provide office-based treatment of opioid use disorder with buprenorphine.
With a new foreword by Nora Volkow, Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, this second edition of Office-Based Buprenorphine Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder provides updated information on evidence-based treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD)—an increasingly important topic as the epidemic of opioid misuse and overdose deaths grows in the United States.
Bulleted clinical pearls at the end of each chapter, as well as specific clinical recommendations and detailed case discussions throughout, make it easier for readers to retain knowledge and integrate it into their clinical practice. The guide also features sample documentation and scales, including a treatment contract and a patient consent, that can be used to model documents in practice.
This new edition of Office-Based Buprenorphine Treatment has been updated to reflect DSM-5 language, and two additional chapters have been included: one that addresses other pharmacotherapies useful in treating OUD, including methadone and naltrexone, and another that discusses OUD treatment specifically with regard to women's health and pregnancy.
