Opioid Use Disorder
More than 90,000 people died of an overdose in 2020

130 individuals are dying daily from opioid overdose
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the gold standard of care to manage OUD
Individuals in MAT have decreased rates of overdose and death
There are 3 FDA approved medications to treat OUD: buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone
Buprenorphine can be taken sublingually, under the tongue or in the cheek daily in the form of a pill or film
Buprenorphine is also available as a long-acting injection you receive every 4 weeks
Naltrexone is a long-acting medication that is injected once every 4 weeks
