Includes 2 articles on use of a new medication for opioid addiction: (1) “Practical Considerations for the Clinical Use of Buprenorphine.” This is a new and attractive medication option for many opioid-addicted adults and their physicians. Before initiating buprenorphine treatment, providers must be aware of such critical factors as how the medication works, its efficacy and safety profile, how it is used in opioid withdrawal as well as maintenance treatment, and how patients can best be selected, educated, and monitored throughout treatment. This article reviews these important issues as well as requirements for physician and staff training and needs for additional research on this unique medication. (2) “Community Treatment Programs Take Up Buprenorphine.” Clinicians have been working out ways to incorporate buprenorphine into their treatment models. Representatives of 3 addiction treatment programs -- a Veterans Affairs methadone clinic, a group of outpatient mental health centers, and a nationwide organization of therapeutic communities -- talk about their plans and experiences.
