Medication assisted therapy (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD) in youth improves outcomes and saves lives
Rising morbidity and mortality for adolescents and young adults in the USA is a difficult health issue. Despite recommendations by professional organisations and the government to use MAT for youths with OUD as early as possible, youths are one-tenth as likely as an adult to receive MAT. Reasons for not prescribing early include lack of paediatric prescribers, clinician apprehension, stigma associated with MAT, and prescribing only after failure of behavioural therapy. Since attrition in therapy is greater for youths compared with adults, MAT may be the best retention strategy for OUD treatment in youth that ultimately sav...
