The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends medication assisted treatment for adolescents with opioid use disorders (MOUD) but less than 12% of affected youth ever receive treatment and even fewer receive MOUD. In an effort to get evidence-based treatment to people with OUD, in 2021 the HHS relaxed the laws that govern MOUD prescribing. Similar to collaborative care approaches to treatment of other mental health disorders, pediatric-focused NPs should be the first person their patients look to for helping them recover from OUDs. This case-based presentation will give participants an overview of screening and evidence-based treatment for youth with OUDs, followed by practical advice and resources for preparing a practice to care for this population.
