As part of SAMHSA’s response to the opioid crisis, TIP 63 is a resource for health professionals. The 306 page PDF is free to download and was published to help broaden healthcare professionals’ understanding of medications that can be used to treat Americans with opioid use disorder (OUD).
“We know that people can and do recover from opioid use disorders when they receive appropriate treatment, and medication-assisted treatment’s success in treating opioid use disorders is well documented,” said Dr. Elinore F. McCance-Katz, Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use. “TIP 63 emphasizes that increasing access to medications to treat opioid use disorder will help more people recover, enabling them to improve their health, living full and productive lives.”
