SAMHSA Grant Program Will Help Address Methadone Poisoning

SAMHSA Grant Program Will Help Address Methadone Poisoning.

Will this be a good or bad thing for Opiate Addiction Treatment?

It could be good because SAMSHA is very well versed in how to use methadone for the treatment of addiction.  It could force bad practice clinics to start being more “up-to-date” with their dosing (as some clinics still employ blind dosing, dosing caps and limits)……..however, if this initiative tries to lump prescribing for chronic pain and addiction into one category and teach from that angle–we may have new doctors prescribing at clinics that don’t “get” addiction treatment and how it is different.
