Title: Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder With Buprenorphine Utilizing Telehealth 

In the face of an escalating overdose crisis and an increasing need to reach remote and underserved communities, extending the buprenorphine telehealth flexibility is of paramount importance. To permanently continue this flexibility among OTPs after the COVID-19 public health emergency ends, SAMHSA proposes to revise OTP regulations under 42 CFR part 8.
