We would like to inform our associates throughout the United States and other countries about three “Whitepapers” that AATOD organized for the Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration/ Department of Health and Human Services. These papers were produced under the contract number HHSP233201400268P. They are comprehensive and forward thinking models of how OTP’s can better engage other parties in ensuring that our patients receive high quality care and continuity of services in different facilities.
All three policy papers provide long-term strategic blueprints to OTPs and interested parties in how to fully realize the goals of Medication Assisted Treatment in a Comprehensive Hub setting. We know that you will find them to be of value.
We would like to thank SAMHSA and the Department for all of their support in developing these policy papers in addition to the authors who developed such excellent guidance for our field.
Here is a brief description and links to each White Paper:
Whitepaper #1 – “Models of Integrated Patient Care through OTPs and DATA 2000 Practices”
The paper is comprehensive in providing direction to treatment providers and policy officials in how such models of care can be implemented in other states.
Whitepaper #2 – “Integrated Service Delivery Models for Opioid Treatment Programs in an Era of Increasing Opioid Addiction, Health Reform, and Parity”.
Both sections are designed to provide models of service delivery to OTPs throughout the United States.
Whitepaper #3 – “Increasing Access to Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction in Drug Courts and Correctional Facilities and Working Effectively with Family Courts and Child Protective Services”
