Title of Collaborative Activity:

NASEM Study on Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has partnered with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to commission a workshop and report from the National Academy of Sciences to support the dissemination of accurate patient-focused information about treatments for addiction, and to help proved scientific solutions to the current opioid crisis. As part of that process, an ad hoc committee under the auspices of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will conduct a study of the evidence base on medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD). Specifically, the committee will: •Review current knowledge and gaps in understanding regarding the effectiveness of MAT for treating OUD, •Examine available evidence on the range of parameters and circumstances in which MAT can be effectively delivered (e.g., duration of treatment, populations, settings, and interventions to address social determinants of health (SDH) as a component of MAT), •Identify challenges in implementation and uptake, •Identify additional research needed on MAT for OUD. Based on its review of the literature and input from the public workshop, the committee will develop a report with its findings and conclusions.
