From X to Rx: Confronting Real World Obstacles to Buprenorphine Prescribing

This workshop is designed for ALL advocates of buprenorphine treatment. It will review the challenges of managing patients on buprenorphine in different practice settings and experts in the field will discuss successfully navigating DEA visits, obtaining reimbursement, managing inductions, performing urine drug testing, and preventing diversion. Participants will be provided with a toolkit which they can begin to use immediately to jumpstart their own buprenorphine practice.
