DeMaria, Peter A., Jr.; Patkar, Ashwin A.
Journal of American College Health, v56 n4 p391-393 Jan-Feb 2008
Opiate abuse and dependence have become important concerns for college healthcare providers. The passage of the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 and the approval of the combination buprenorphine/naloxone for office-based treatment of opiate dependence have increased the options available for college students and their healthcare providers. The authors review the pharmacology of buprenorphine/naloxone and discuss how it can be implemented in college health practice. They also present a case report.
