Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a chronic disease and, as such, the long-term management can and should be done in a primary care setting. Pharmacotherapy for OUD saves lives; however, there are many gaps in access to medications. This session will outline strategies for overcoming barriers to treatment of OUD in a primary care setting. It will provide examples of successful clinical programs that are using different primary care models to provide medications for OUD.

They are adaptive across the continuum of care and are distinguished from professional treatment and mutual aid support groups.
