The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) has created an informational slide deck in conjunction with the release of the ASAM National Practice Guideline for the Use of Medications in the Treatment of Addiction Involving Opioid Use. This slide deck provides explanations on why this guideline was made and who contributed to its development. It also gives an overview of how physicians assess, diagnose and treat opioid use disorder with any of the medications that are FDA-approved. This guideline is the first of its kind to include all FDA-approved medications in one document. Speaker notes on the entire slide deck is also included on this page.
