About the Course:
This article explores buprenorphine treatment and a stepped care model. Although counseling is a required part of office-based buprenorphine treatment of opioid use disorders, the nature of what constitutes appropriate counseling is unclear and controversial. This article reviews the existing literature on the role, nature, and intensity of behavioral interventions in office-based buprenorphine treatment.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, The Role of Behavioral Interventions in Buprenorphine Maintenance Treatment-A Review created by Kathleen M. Carroll, Ph.D. and Roger D. Weiss, M.D. in 2017.
