About the webinar: Buprenorphine is an effective, critical treatment component of adolescent opioid use disorder. However, not enough pediatricians provide this life-saving treatment, making it essentially unavailable to most who need it. Are you on the fence about getting your waiver to prescribe buprenorphine? This webinar will answer your questions and concerns, and prepare you and your practice for providing access to treatment.

Educational objectives:

  • Describe the risk factors for and consequences of non-medical use of opioid medication in the pediatric population
  • Describe current treatment options for opioid use disorder (OUD)
  • Learn the approach to office-based treatment with buprenorphine for detoxification and maintenance of remission for adolescent OUD
  • Implement an office-based treatment regimen with buprenorphine for adolescent OUD
  • List factors that impact treatment retention and effectiveness in these patients
  • Review the current training and DEA requirements for prescription of buprenorphine
