The Buprenorphine Treatment for Young Adults Blending Team designed a training package which highlights the findings of protocol CTN-0010, "Buprenorphine/Naloxone-Facilitated Rehabilitation for Opioid Dependent Adolescents/Young Adults," which compared longer-term versus short-term buprenoprhine/naloxone treatment in an outpatient setting. The 3-hour training program examines the prevalence of and treatment admission rates for nonmedical use of opioids among young adults; provides an overview of opioid use among young adults; explores and increases understanding of the results of new research on using buprenorphine to treat opioid addiction in young adults; and describes the implications of these findings for the treatment of opioid addiction in young adults. The Blending Team Product includes a 3-hour classroom training, a PowerPoint presentation, and a Brochure.
Note: As of April 2010, only the Brochure is available for download, with the rest of the product coming soon. (Blending Team Product, PDF, English, 2010)
