Office-based outpatient care for alcohol and opioid use disorders

Clients who need outpatient treatment for opioid and alcohol use disorder could also be accommodated in an office setting. Pharmacotherapies available at the facility include buprenorphine plus naloxone, naltrexone and the use of supportive medications such as clonidine for brief periods to facilitate entry into future drug-free or partial agonist/antagonist treatment programs.
