How to Address the Opiate and Heroin Epidemic

 

It's okay to reach out for help. Substance use disorder is a disease and should be treated as one.

 

 

A critical part of the approach to ending the opioid epidemic is linking people to treatment.

The current treatment options are:

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
  • Methodone
  • Buprenorphine
  • Naltrexone (short- and long-acting forms)
Behavioral Therapies
  • Contingency management, or motivational incentives
  • 12-Step facilitation therapy
