Description

Some medical problems are more prevalent and often more severe in people addicted to opioids than in the general population. This CEU course identifies medical problems commonly encountered in people addicted to opioids, discusses their treatment in opioid treatment programs (OTP), and notes important considerations in deciding which medical services will be provided in an OTP and which can best be performed as a referred service.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Explain what should take place when a patient in MAT abuses a CNS depressant.

2. Investigate which HIV medication increases methadone levels.

3. Examine the factors that have been found to increase the prevalence of co-occurring disorders.

4. Identify which disease is transmitted at the highest rate among injection drug users.

5. Provide which medications should be avoided for acute pain management because they can cause opioid withdrawal in patients receiving MAT.
