Help Influence Federal Guidelines for Opioid Treatment
You can now comment on the Federal Guidelines for Opioid Treatment. This preliminary set of guidelines provides detailed information to opioid treatment programs (OTPs) and accreditation organizations about what they need to comply with new requirements under the Code of Federal Regulations (42 CFR Part 8).
As part of efforts to finalize the guidelines, representatives from OTPs, accreditation organizations, patient groups, the medical community, and interested members of the public are asked to review and comment on these preliminary guidelines.
All comments submitted by the deadline, July 16, 2013, will be carefully considered.
