Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD)

Medications for Opioid Use Disorders (MOUD) involve a combination of medications that targets the brain, and psychosocial interventions (e.g., counseling, skills development) aimed at improving treatment outcomes. Research shows that medications and therapy together may be more successful than either treatment method alone. More from PCSS.

Buprenorphine is one of three medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid use disorder. MACS’ team of expert addiction medicine specialists provide trainings for Maryland prescribers on best practices for providing buprenorphine and caring for individuals with OUD. We also provide technical assistance support for prescribers and their practices to grow office-based services for opioid use disorders.

The removal of the waiver previously required to prescribe buprenorphine, makes providing life-saving treatment for opioid use disorder easier.
