Buprenorphine is the most frequently used medication to treat opioid use disorder in this country. It is also under-utilized due to the dearth of physicians trained and familiar with how to start it. On this episode Dr. Edwin Salsitz will discuss how to initiate buprenorphine in the office setting, called induction. Dr. Salsitz is an attending physician in the Beth Israel Medical Center, Division of Chemical Dependency in New York City since 1983, and is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Dr. Salsitz is a course director for the American Society of Addiction Medicine sponsored buprenorphine trainings and is a mentor in the Providers Clinical Support System for Medication Assisted Treatment mentoring program.
