MAY 1: Primary care providers and teams are invited to learn more about buprenorphine prescribing and office-based opioid treatment to help address the opioid crisis at two new trainings in Greenville offered by Eastern and Mountain Area Health Education Centers. Despite its proven efficacy, less than 10 percent of physicians in the U.S. have waivers to prescribe buprenorphine, which does not cause a high but helps with withdrawal symptoms. Combined with behavioral therapies and support, this medication assisted treatment is more effective than detox and abstinence. OBOT remains underutilized for a variety of reasons such as stigma and training requirements but can be particularly beneficial in rural areas. These trainings will be held at Eastern AHEC, but registration is through Mountain AHEC. For more information, visit www.easternahec.net/projects-resources/obot.
