Purpose:

The study assesses whether adding a behavioral intervention, known as the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), to the treatment of individuals already receiving buprenorphine/naloxone can improve treatment success and retention rates in young adults with severe opioid use disorder.


Study summary:

Buprenorphine is one of the medication assisted treatments approved by the FDA for opioid use disorders. Treatment with buprenorphine/naloxone may reduce the risk of opioid overdose and lower the occurrence of further conditions associated with injection drug use such as psychiatric disorders, hepatitis C infection, HIV, and high-risk sexual and criminal behaviors. The study assesses whether adding a behavioral intervention, known as the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), to the treatment of individuals already receiving buprenorphine/naloxone can improve treatment success and retention rates in young adults with severe opioid use disorder.
