As some of you all know, and some may not, hard copies of TIP43 have been out of stock for MONTHS on SAMHSA's publications store (though you've always been able to download and access a free pdf/electronic version of the publication)... Well as of a few days ago it is now BACK IN STOCK!!!

Order your own hard copy here: http://store.samhsa.gov/product/TIP-43-Medication-Assisted-Treatment-for-Opioid-Addiction-in-Opioid-Treatment-Programs/SMA12-4214

Image
For those who aren't aware, the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) publishes a series of "Treatment Improvement Protocols" ("TIPs") on various mental health and substance use disorder topics, treatments, etc. TIP #43 is the one on "Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction in Opioid Treatment Programs." So it's basically the federal government's recommended treatment protocols for methadone and buprenorphine treatment in clinics. It's chalked full of GREAT information from the history of medication assisted treatment (MAT), the pharmacology of the different medications used in MATs for opioid addiction, recommendations for clinic administrative policies and procedures and ALL SORTS of other things from broad information down to specific topics like requiring lock boxes for takehomes, bottle recalls/med counts, etc... It's something that every patient should have a copy of. Like we say at NAMA Recovery, Knowledge is power!!!

Me too!!! After they were out of stock for soooo long recently I'm not going to let that happen again... I had a clinic in the area call me just a few weeks ago asking if I had any because they had two new counselors that needed copies. So I'm going to ALWAYS try to keep some on hand from now on after all that happened --- for both patients AND providers that may need them. I hope everyone (especially patients) will go and order at least ONE personal copy ASAP. Hopefully they printed a LOT of them considering how highly in demand they are... This is one of the GOOD results of our tax dollars at work! :lol:

Hey personal differences folks may have aside, we all believe in and support the goals of NAMA-R...and this is NAMA-R's forums & that's what it's all about! 8-) I know these forums still have a LOT of life and activity left in them & loads of positive information & support to offer MAT patients around the world!

TOGETHER we can make a difference!!

Just commenting to bump this one back up... Every patient of an opioid treatment program ("methadone clinic") in the United States - as well as their family/friends - should have a copy of TIP43!

Mr Potter, you can always get a free downloadable copy, it's just the hard copy that costs actual money. I can't see at the moment how much, but I will try and find out for you.
