Many drug rehab centers in Missouri that use medication-assisted rehab would be required to comply, should HB 1133 become a law. Buprenorphine, for example, is a drug cleared for treating narcotic addiction under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act, and is a Schedule III drug. When properly used, this drug could do wonders.
To keep close tabs on dispensing, rehab centers like the Midwest Institute for Addiction only administer medication within the facility. It’s the least a reputable Missouri rehabilitation center can do while it awaits the drug monitoring program the state really needs.
