COVID-19 has changed the world as we know it; we don’t know what’s next or when we’ll get to the “New Normal.”
However, people who are addicted to opioid painkillers can’t just “take a break” from their addiction. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) has been proven to be effective in helping people hooked on opioids get clean fast. However, it’s hard enough asking for help in good times, when there are no restrictions on access to healthcare.
Call the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center in Holbrook at 631-588-4888 today for access to MAT via telephone.
Thankfully, in light of the pandemic, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has taken steps to provide flexibility in terms of “prescribing and dispensing of controlled substances to ensure necessary patient therapies remain accessible.”
Dr. Jahan Chaudhry, founder of the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center, is now able to prescribe buprenorphine to new and existing patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) via telephone. Telemedicine has become quite popular during the shelter-in-place caused by COVID-19.
The DEA announced the availability of OUD via telephone by otherwise authorized practitioners “without requiring such practitioners to first conduct an examination of the patient in person or via telemedicine.” This includes buprenorphine, a medication that has been approved by the U.S. FDA to safely and effectively treat opioid addiction.
You can get the help you need NOW! And you won’t have to see Dr. Chaudhry in person.
Dr. Chaudhry prescribes a prescription drug called Suboxone®, a sublingual film made of a combination of two leading OUD medications buprenorphine and naloxone. “Buprenorphine suppresses and decreases any cravings for opioid painkillers,” Dr. Chaudhry explained. “Once appropriate dosing is complete, buprenorphine has been proven to reduce opioid dependency and side effects.
