Pathways to Care: Improving Methadone Access Under Existing Regulations
Play • 44 min

Methadone can be a life-changing treatment option for people with opioid use disorder. However, a number of federal and state regulations and logistical requirements can inhibit a person’s ability to start and/or maintain methadone treatment. There are regulation exceptions that can help people get the essential care they need, and some providers are using these exceptions to initiate methadone while still complying with the regulatory boundaries.

This month’s podcast covers current regulations directing how and when people with opioid use disorder can access methadone treatment; what clinics can do to deliver life-saving care while complying with regulations; and how supporting clients on methadone can also enhance their ability to maintain antiretroviral therapy or practice HIV prevention behaviors.
