SAMHSA TIP 63: Medications for Opioid Use Disorders

by

The goal of treatment for opioid addiction or opioid use disorder (OUD) is remission of the disorder leading to lasting recovery. Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.

SAMHSA’s new Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP), “Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (TIP 63),” helps behavioral healthcare professionals broaden their understanding of the three FDA-approved medications—methadone, naltrexone, and buprenorphine—used to help treat Americans with opioid use disorder, as well as the other strategies and services needed to support recovery for people with OUD.

TIP 63 had significant input from researchers, clinicians, and information specialists affiliated with the Pacific NW Node. Ron Jackson, MSW, LISW and Andrew Saxon, MD served on the Expert Panel to help develop the TIP via a consensus-driven, collaborative process that blends evidence-based, best, and promising practices with the panel’s expertise and combined wealth of experience.

In addition, field reviewers for this TIP included Meg Brunner, MLIS from the CTN Dissemination Library and ADAI, Alison Newman, MPH (ADAI) and Mary Catlin, RN, MPH, CIC, (DOH and ADAI). The field review allows people who work in addiction, mental health, and adjacent fields to gauge the TIP’s relevance, utility, accuracy, and accessibility.
