Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a chronic disease and, as such, the long-term management can and should be done in a primary care setting. Pharmacotherapy for OUD saves lives; however, there are many gaps in access to medications. This session will outline strategies for overcoming barriers to treatment of OUD in a primary care setting. It will provide examples of successful clinical programs that are using different primary care models to provide medications for OUD.


About the Symposium:
The theme of this year’s Department of Psychiatry Collaborative Care and Wellness Division Annual Symposium on Behavioral Health Integration is Treatment on Demand and the Ecosystem of Recovery: Helping Patients and Communities Recover from the Opioid Crisis. Throughout the month of October, presenters will discuss strategies for addressing the opioid epidemic with a focus on rural communities.
