Kenneth B. Stoller, MD | Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Director, Johns Hopkins Broadway Center for Addiction

Sponsor: American Psychiatric Association

Webinar description:  Medication assisted treatments (MAT) enhance opioid use disorder treatment efficacy, yet remain underutilized. Opioid treatment programs (OTPs) can now dispense buprenorphine or naltrexone as well as methadone. Collaboration between OTPs and office-based buprenorphine (OBB) prescribers constitutes a cohesive model providing access to comprehensive services, and encouraging MAT prescribing.

Dr. Stoller will focus on a model of care he coined “Collaborative Opioid Prescribing (CoOP),” linking OTP expertise with OBB prescribers. The OTP provides assessment, buprenorphine induction, and counseling, while OBB physicians provide ongoing buprenorphine prescribing and somatic or psychiatric care.  An adaptive stepped care model adjusts counseling intensity and medication parameters (OBB prescription vs. OTP dispensing; duration of prescriptions).  Supporting OBB providers in this manner may encourage MAT provision and access, while concurrently improving treatment outcome.  Providing a broad spectrum of medical, social, and recovery services through coordinated care can enhance health outcomes and address unmet patient needs.

Educational objectives:  At the conclusion of this activity participants should be able to:

  • describe a model of treatment that links opioid treatment programs with office-based buprenorphine prescribers.
  • list at least two reasons physicians often give as reasons why they do not prescribe buprenorphine.
  • provide one definition of the term “clinical integration.”
