While opioids have their place in treatment, they can also add to claim’s complexity and cost. Their use in the wrong dose, for the wrong duration can also increase costs and delay functional restoration and return to work. In this course, our experts will discuss opioid use disorder (OUD), which is the continued use of an opioid despite clinically significant distress or impairment. You’ll also review common indications, considerations, and strategies for opioid tapering and withdrawal including non-opioid therapy options to treat withdrawal symptoms and Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) options.
