Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction: Separating Fact from Fiction

I think it was primarily a way to get the Dea and the Fda to say okay to letting people prescribe buprenorphine for replacement therapy. So what do you think is like the big misconception, like you've seen zillions of people that come in for that treatment, so the medication treatment.
In the latest episode of Full Potential, Now!, Ted Izydor interviews Dr. Matt Felgus and Dr. Brian Lochen about medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction. The guests explain how medication-assisted treatment can be a valuable tool in addiction recovery, but also dispel some of the common misconceptions around it. One of the biggest misconceptions is that medication-assisted treatment is a one-size-fits-all solution to addiction, but Dr. Felgus and Dr. Lochen stress the importance of addressing underlying issues that drive addiction.
They also emphasize the role of counseling in medication-assisted treatment, as well as the dangers of mixing benzodiazepines and opioids. Another important topic discussed is pain hypersensitivity and how it can impact opioid addiction. The guests also share their personal experiences with addiction and recovery, offering a relatable perspective to listeners. If you or a loved one is struggling with opioid addiction, this episode is a must-listen.
