Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) Services
UVa’s OBOT program serves individuals (at least age 18) with opioid use disorders by providing medication-assisted treatment on an outpatient basis to help reduce opioid use, opioid overdose deaths, and transmission of infectious diseases.
To help people recover from opioid use disorders, the OBOT program offers a holistic person-centered approach by providing prescription medications (Suboxone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, or Vivitrol) in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. These medications work by providing relief from opioid withdrawal symptoms while reducing cravings for continued opioid use.
The multidisciplinary OBOT team offers a combination of recovery services and supports including medication management, counseling/therapy, case management, relapse prevention, overdose education, and care coordination to address the needs of individuals with opioid use disorders. The OBOT clinic also collaborates with local community resources to provide additional support to individuals receiving care.
