Medication For Opioid Use Disorder Clinic

The Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) Clinic treats those who need help with opioid use addictions. Services are available to patients who are seen in Hurley’s emergency department who are seeking treatment for their Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), self-identify as having a problem with OUD, withdrawing from opioids or with other complications of their disease or who may have experienced a nonfatal overdose.

Why the emergency department?

The emergency department is often the primary source of medical care for individuals with OUD. ER visits offer an opportunity to access life-saving treatment. Identifying individuals with untreated OUD enables providers to motivate individuals to accept treatment, effectively treat opioid withdrawal symptoms, initiate evidence-based treatment, refer individuals to ongoing care and to reduce harm by offering overdose education and dispensing naloxone kits.

Treatment

  • Consultation with a social worker
  • Telemedicine appointments
  • Medication
  • Referral to New Paths, Inc. a local substance use disorder treatment program

Benefits of the Clinic

  • Facilitates safer withdrawal by relieving symptoms and controlling cravings
  • Reduces the risk of death due to overdose
  • Increases retention in treatment with safer, controlled medications
  • Works to decrease illegal drug use and, with it, the potential dangers

Is addiction a medical disease?

Instead of understanding addiction as only a moral or spiritual failing, many medical professionals have begun to view opioid use disorder as a medical disease. The disease of addiction can be caused by repeated exposure to a drug, coupled with genetic or environmental risk factors, leading to physical changes in the brain’s opioid receptors. In this view, addiction can be treated and managed with medication, much like other chronic medical conditions. Medication has been shown to provide an evidence-based, safe, controlled level of treatment to overcome the use of a problem opioid. Hurley’s program offers a safe, comfortable environment for patients who suffer from OUD.
