Description
 
The abuse of prescription opioid pan relievers and illicit opioids, such as heroin, have contributed to increasing numbers of overdose deaths in the U.S., and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data show more than 28,000 opioid overdose deaths in 2014. Research has shown that medication-assisted treatment (MAT) -- an approach that combines behavioral therapy and the use of medications -- can more effectively reduce opioid use and increase treatment retention compared to treatment without medication. This report examined (1) how federal laws and regulations apply when using medications to treat opioid addiction compared to using the same medications for pain management; and (2) key factors that can affect access to MAT for opioid addiction. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
