Guidelines Available for Medication-Assisted Addiction Treatment

A National Practice Guideline stakeholder summit last week featured the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s (ASAM) new ASAM National Practice Guideline for the Use of Medications in the Treatment of Addiction Involving Opioid Use. At the summit, which focused on addressing the opioid overdose epidemic through the use of medications, ASAM also released quick-reference pocket cards and digital apps to support the adoption of the new national practice guideline. More resources related to the practice guideline, including a slide deck and details on upcoming webinars, can be found at www.asam.org/practice-support/guidelines-and-consensus-documents/npg
