Linking Hospitalized Injection Drug Users to Buprenorphine

2014-08-27 03:18:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study tests whether starting Suboxone (buprenorphine) during a medical hospitalization, and then providing an appointment (a "link") for after discharge to maintenance buprenorphine in an outpatient setting will reduce HIV risk behavior in individuals who inject opioids.

Description

In this randomized controlled trial, medically hospitalized opioid dependent patients will be assigned to a "treatment as usual" group, where they will receive a detox regiment of Suboxone during their hospital stay, or a "linkage" group, where they receive a maintenance course of Suboxone during their hospital stay, and appointment post-discharge with an outpatient Suboxone clinic/provider and a Suboxone prescription to use between discharge and this appointment. Study interviews are completed at baseline, and 1, 3- and 6-months post-baseline. Primary outcomes are opioid use and HIV risk behavior.
