More on the Buprenorphine Prescriber Beginner/Master Classes
Many problems occur in buprenorphine maintenance treatment when patients and prescribers have different priorities and different expectations. Providers often feel that they need to exert maximal control over their patients and their medication, as they are prescribing controlled substances and are under regulatory scrutiny. Many patients will do very well on buprenorphine treatment but may not comply with strict provider requirements that they feel do not work for them. Conflicts over these issues often result in frustration and burnout of providers, and frustration and drop out of patients. A better understanding of the nature of the diseases of opioid dependence and addiction, treatment goals, the significant safety profile of buprenorphine, and the typical behaviors that are characteristic of many addiction patients, can help providers develop a more effective, successful, profitable, and rewarding practice.
