Overview

The session will review the first long-term follow up of medication-assisted treatment of patients addicted to prescription pain medication. The study examined outcomes over a 42-month period among participants from the Prescription Opioid Addiction Treatment Study (POATS), which was conducted through the NIDA Clinical Trials Network.

The study found that patients currently engaged in opioid agonist therapy were more likely to report abstinence than those who were not using medication. Additionally, it found that patients who had ever used heroin had poorer odds of overcoming their pain reliever addiction than those who had never done so.

Webinar participants will achieve a greater understanding of the role of medication and counseling in the treatment of prescription opioid dependence.
