Sample Medication For Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) Protocols

These exemplary MOUD protocols were developed by CA Bridge and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services. Download these sample clinical MOUD protocols and adapt for use in your emergency department.

*Historically, pharmacological treatment for opioid use disorder was referred to as “Medication Assisted Treatment” (MAT).” More recently, it has been determined that the better term is “Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD)” since it precisely describes this treatment form and carries less stigma. While many valuable resources in the Michigan Safer Opioid Prescribing Toolkit still use the term “MAT,” our website will refer to it as “MOUD” going forward.

Sites will need to evaluate whether these sample clinical MOUD protocols are appropriate for their ED and obtain proper committee approval before use.
