AMCP Substance Use Disorder Advisory Group: A Focus on Prescription Drug Use
Despite efforts to decrease the use of opioids, challenges remain. AMCP created multiple advisory groups beginning in 2015, recognizing the widespread and devastating nature of the opioid crisis. Over time, these groups addressed access to medications for the treatment of substance use disorders and developed a viewpoint document on the importance of co-prescribing naloxone. The purpose of this group is to continue the work of the previous groups and focus on collecting and disseminating guidelines for managed care pharmacists regarding integrated care models and benefit designs that effectively address substance use disorder.
