Substance Abuse

Medication Monitoring

Drug abuse is a growing problem in Washington State where it is estimated that almost 12% of teens use medicines for non-medical reasons.1 The Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy works with prescribers to help ensure that their patients receive the right medicine at the right time. This one-on-one counseling at the pharmacy entails observed administration of disulfiram (Antabuse®) or buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone®). Pharmacists at the Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy find it rewarding to play a small part in assisting patients go from chemical dependence to individual independence as they make positive changes in their lives.

Antabuse® Direct Observation Program

Patients are prescribed disulfiram (Antabuse®) to maintain alcohol abstinence. In order to ensure patient compliance with the treatment regimen, it is often prescribed to be taken under the direct observation of a health care provider or other care taker. At the Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy there are private counseling rooms where a program patient meets with a pharmacist who administers the medication and gives counsel about the treatment regimen. The encounter is documented in the clinic-based electronic health record for patient and provider convenience.

Suboxone® Counseling Program

Pharmacists at the Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy play an important role in these programs that are set up by the health care providers. When patients receive Suboxone® treatment to assist their efforts in quitting a dependency on a substance they receive private one-on-one counseling. In these regular counseling sessions with the pharmacist the treatment plan will be discussed, and patients receive encouragement and positive reinforcement for changing their lives.
