More than 20 million Americans are affected with opioid use disorder with over 1 million in NY State. Addiction is a chronic disease that affects both the brain and behavior. Fortunately, substance use disorders are preventable and treatable, especially with Primary Care Practitioners providing Medical-Assisted Treatment using medications such as Buprenorphine. It is our hope that this Educational Program on how to conduct Medical-Assisted Treatment will help expand access to this effective care to patients struggling with opioid use disorder.
