Pharmacists and other healthcare practitioners are on the frontlines of the fight against opioid use disorders. Through their training and direct contact with patients, they are uniquely qualified to prevent and manage misuse of opioids and other drugs. But knowing where and how to start isn't always obvious. The Pharmacist's Guide to Opioid Use Disorders provides a comprehensive resource for all aspects of this devastating epidemic, starting with a discussion of the neuroscience of substance use disorders. Edited by Merrill Norton, PharmD, ICCDP-D, a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy and a specialist in psychopharmacology and substance use disorders, it compiles the most current information, science, and best practices in one concise guide. Readers will benefit from the insights and lessons described in each chapter, as well as the clinical pearls-practice points- gleaned from the writers' medical, nursing, and pharmacy clinical practices. The Guide also provides useful information in its appendices, including references and resources and a naloxone products table.
