Description: 
This Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP), Clinical Guidelines for the Use of Buprenorphine in the Treatment of Opioid Addiction, provides consensus‐ and evidence‐based treatment guidance for the use of buprenorphine, a new option for the treatment of opioid addiction. The goal of this TIP is to provide physicians with information they can use to make practical and informed decisions about the use of buprenorphine to treat opioid addiction. These guidelines address the pharmacology and physiology of opioids, opioid addiction, and treatment with buprenorphine; describe patient assessment and the choice of opioid addiction treatment options; provide detailed treatment protocols for opioid withdrawal and maintenance therapy with buprenorphine; and include information on the treatment of special populations, e.g., pregnant women, adolescents, and polysubstance users. This TIP represents another step by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) toward its goal of bringing national leaders together to improve substance use disorder treatment in the United States.

Description: 
This Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) is a guide to medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction (MAT) in opioid treatment programs (OTPs). Compared with MAT in other settings, such as physicians' offices or detoxification centers, treatment in OTPs provides a more comprehensive, individually tailored program of medication therapy integrated with psychosocial and medical treatment and support services that address most factors affecting each patient. Treatment in OTPs also can include detoxification from illicit opioids and medically supervised withdrawal from maintenance medications. This TIP combines and updates TIP 1 (State Methadone Treatment Guidelines, published in 1993), TIP 10 (Assessment and Treatment of Cocaine-Abusing Methadone-Maintained Patients, published in 1994), TIP 20 (Matching Treatment to Patient Needs in Opioid Substitution Therapy, published in 1995), and TIP 22 (LAAM in the Treatment of Opiate Addiction, published in 1995). It incorporates the many changes in MAT that have occurred since the publication of TIP 1, primarily as they are reflected in OTPs, and discusses the challenges that remain. (From Their Website)
