Opioid use disorder is a chronic, relapsing disease, and should be treated as such in a medical and psycho-social manner.
Treatment on demand and creating low barriers to access are critical in ensuring services are available when people are ready for treatment.
Individualized treatment can best meet the needs of the patients and help them advance through the stages of change toward recovery.
Effective opioid use disorder treatment depends on careful assessment and treatment of each patient’s physical, psychological and social needs; meeting the patient “where they are at”.
Comprehensive, affordable treatment has the best chance to be effective in the resolution of chronic substance use disorder problems.
Family or support network involvement is crucial for long-term success.
The mission of CARF is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of persons served.
