  4. My name is Donner Schweitzer. I'm an FNP-C based out of Salt Lake City, UT. I'm new to substance abuse treatment and have had my waiver for over a year. I would love to know more resources about federal guidelines and Utah state guidelines for the prescribing practice of suboxone. My exec team is interested in starting a suboxone clinic in their behavioral health and residential treatment facility. Does anyone have any advice on where to start my research? I've reach out to other MAT programs in the area, but haven't really gotten anywhere. I appreciate any advice. Thank you in advance!

  6. I reached out to SAMHSA regarding your question and here is their response: The buprenorphine prescriptive authority can only be attached to one DEA number, but you can add multiple locations to your profile, additional DEA number is not required. To add another address: https://buprenorphine.samhsa.gov/forms/update-contact-info-login.php Thanks much and hope this helps!

  15. This question was submitted through pcssNOW.org: How do you taper someone off of lyrica? I've seen reduction by 10% monthly. What's a safe dose to stop "cold turkey"? Dr. Anthony Dekker provided this response: As with all anti-seizure medications patients may have an event during the weaning process. If the pregabalin was for pain, stopping at 50 mg per day should be ok and keep the patient well hydrated. If the medication was for seizures, the patient should not be stopped unless another seizure medication was used to replace the pregabalin.

  18. Greetings Mr. Acton, This question has been contemplated for as far back as I can remember over my 12 or so years of providing MAT in a unique sort of small rural community that happens to also have med school. Ive seen all kinds of requests come in from oral surgeons, orthopedics, and anesthesia providers where I used to get that request for 7 days off suboxone before they would perform anesthesia. My concern always had been the high risk, if not certainty, of relapse. I was blessed to have an recovered anesthesiologist on staff & we had many a discussion on tapers & how it would

  20. Hello Jana, You ask the question how do you define the science behind well-being, this is probably one of most debated question, because of so many individuals Christian belief, but if I had to answer the question the science of well-being has to do with one physical, mental, spiritual etc. Well-being has been define as the positive quality of life experience, for example I remember at age four my father buying me an ice cream cone, that day was good day. So if we mediate on all of our life positive events we learn subjective well being. A person who has a high level of satisfaction with
