Abstract

Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) is a major problem in the state of Maine with one person dying from overdose every day. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) using Suboxone has been shown to be helpful in the treatment of OUD, but there is currently a great need for providers to prescribe Suboxone in this region. We looked at barriers that providers saw for obtaining a waiver to prescribe Suboxone and created a handout to educate providers on MAT and the process for getting the waiver.
