Medication Administered Treatment
At Shop and Carry Pharmacy, we create and run customized medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs for organizations & individuals suffering from Opioid Use Disorder. We realize that despite expanded health insurance coverage, and substantial increase in waivered physicians, patients suffering from opioid-use disorder still face significant barriers in accessing buprenorphine at pharmacies. Through this program, we aim to minimize inequality and transform pharmacy care into quality for all.
Shop and Carry has also partnered with the University of the Sciences and the University of Pittsburgh for a study to enhance the public health role of Pharmacists in the midst of our Opioid crisis. We aim to reduce risks associated with prescription opioids by increasing access to Narcan.
We believe pharmacies and pharmacists have an obligation to help improve the quality of life experienced by individuals suffering from OUD, by providing adequate and fair access to buprenorphine, just as much as any other life sustaining medication.
