ASAM Updates National Practice Guidelines for Opioid Use Disorder

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) has released its National Practice Guideline (NPG) 2020 which is intended to inform and empower clinicians, health system administrators, criminal justice system administrators and policymakers who are interested in implementing evidence-based practices to improve outcomes for individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD).  This is especially important in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The NPG is an update to the previous document in 2015 and includes major revisions to 35 existing recommendations, and 13 new recommendations.
