Summary:

A large number of individuals under criminal justice supervision with opioid use disorders (OUDs) have limited access to pharmacotherapy treatment, an intervention found to reduce substance use, HIV-risk behavior, and criminal activity. This randomized clinical trial will assess the effectiveness of an extended-release buprenorphine (XR-B) formulation compared to extended-release naltrexone (XR-NTX) in county jail inmates prior to release. Understanding how to expand acceptance of medications for OUD, particularly long-acting medications, in jails has far-reaching implications for treatment expansion in this population.

Summary:

This health care data mining study analyzes existing Veterans Health Administration data sets to examine patient and organizational characteristics associated with buprenorphine termination during outpatient OUD treatment. This project will generate data useful for predictive modeling on how to implement targeted approaches to improve retention in OUD treatment. An objective is to identify patient, provider and system targets to reduce unnecessary or inappropriate discontinuation of buprenorphine care. These analyses are critical for establishing initial constructs to evaluate reasons for treatment discontinuation based upon patient, provider and system factors in different health care settings.

A Mindfulness and Peer Mentoring Program to Improve Adherence to Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders Translation of Research to Practice for the Treatment of Opioid Addiction Behavioral Research to Improve Medication-Based Treatment NCCIH Univ of Alabama MUMBA, MERCY N Tuscaloosa, AL 2019
FOA Title: HEAL Initiative: Behavioral Research to Improve MAT: Behavioral and Social Interventions to Improve Adherence to Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Optional)
FOA Number: RFA-AT-19-006
Summary:

There is evidence that combining mindfulness-based interventions and peer recovery support services with medication-assisted therapy (MAT) to treat opioid use disorders (OUD) reduces substance use, cravings, symptoms of depression and anxiety, and relapse rates, and improves treatment retention, and relationships with treatment providers and social supports. The goal of the present study is to determine the effectiveness of a mindfulness-based intervention that also utilizes peer mentors in addition to professional substance abuse therapists (the Minds and Mentors program [MiMP]) in improving adherence to MAT for OUD and reducing relapse rates in a sample of individuals with OUD who are also on MAT versus a 12-step facilitation (TSF) program. The study hypothesizes that participants in MiMP will demonstrate better adherence; reduced relapse and cravings (primary outcomes measures); reduced depression, anxiety, and stress; improved social support (secondary outcomes measures); and reduced cortisol levels and reactivity to drug cues (exploratory outcome measures).

FOA Number: RFA-AT-19-006
Summary:

(Former RePORTER ID: 1R61AT010606-01)

Online peer-led support interventions may increase medication-assisted therapy (MAT) initiation and sustainment among participants with opioid use disorder (OUD) because they can leverage peers to widely and rapidly scale changes in social norms (e.g., interest in using MAT) throughout people’s natural, real-world, virtual environments. Harnessing Online Peer Education (HOPE), an online peer support community intervention designed to reduce stigma and increase health behavior change, has effectively changed health behaviors among stigmatized populations, such as for HIV. This study will determine how to adapt the HOPE online support intervention to increase MAT initiation and sustainment among participants with OUD, assess the intervention’s effectiveness at increasing MAT use among OUD participants recruited online who are not using MAT, and use an implementation science approach to determine the relationship between social network dynamics (e.g., network size), topics discussed on the online community, and behavior change.

Summary:

For many reasons, the emergency department (ED) is a critical venue to initiate opioid use disorder (OUD) interventions. ED patients have a disproportionately high prevalence of substance use disorders and are at an elevated risk of overdose, and many do not access health care elsewhere. Despite this, OUD interventions are rarely initiated in EDs. The Emergency Department Connection to Care with Buprenorphine for Opioid Use Disorder study (CTN-0079) will assess the feasibility, acceptability and impact of introducing clinical protocols for screening for OUD, buprenorphine treatment initiation, and referral for ongoing treatment in ED settings with high need, limited resources and different staffing structures. This extension study will use the existing infrastructure to evaluate the adoption and sustainability of the clinical protocols introduced at each of the study sites and to identify factors influencing their diffusion and effectiveness.

FOA Title: The National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (UG1 Clinical Trial Optional)
FOA Number: RFA-DA-19-008
Summary:

The Appalachian Node of NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN) will address clinical research questions that arise from Central Appalachia, an epicenter of the current opioid epidemic. Its rural geography, culture of independence, strained economy, and lack of access to substance use treatment have all contributed to the epidemic. The three aims of the node are to (1) conduct multi-site trials that address the current opioid crisis, with an emphasis on conducting studies among rural and other underserved populations; (2) propose studies to test innovative uses of existing resources to implement evidence-based practices that will extend state-of-the-art care into resource-poor regions, both rural and urban; and (3) disseminate CTN findings to regional payers and policymakers, practitioners, and the community. Proposed studies built on the work of node investigators include “Serious Bacterial Infections Related to Injection Drug Use: Quality Metrics and Intervention” and “Pharmacist-Assisted Buprenorphine Treatment,” among others.

Summary:

There is a significant treatment gap between patients diagnosed with OUD and those who seek treatment, and only a small proportion of those seeking treatment receive MOUD. Primary care is the most common point of health care contact in the U.S. and is an important venue to address stigma, improve access to treatment and improve quality of care. Over the past decade, electronic health record (EHR)-linked Web-based point-of-care clinical decision support (CDS) systems designed to improve quality of chronic disease care have become increasingly sophisticated and successful. A Web-based and EHR-integrated OUD CDS system to offer expert guidance to primary care providers (PCPs) on the diagnosis and management of OUD was developed and piloted. This project will implement the OUD clinical decision support system in three large diverse health care systems and randomize a minimum of 30 clinics to receive the OUD-CDS intervention or usual care (UC). The project will evaluate the impact of OUD CDS on practice process measures and patient outcomes. The study will also prepare for scalability and dissemination by evaluating facilitators and barriers to implementation, determining the costs of implementation and maintenance and assessing the short-term cost impacts of the OUD-CDS.

Summary:

The opioid epidemic has increased the demand for a research workforce with the necessary expertise and skills to conceptualize and carry out studies to expand and improve treatment options for opioid use disorders (OUDs). In particular, as the NIDA-funded Clinical Trials Network (CTN) expands the number of nodes and takes on additional studies as part of the HEAL Initiative, the need for an increasing number of staff who are familiar with the CTN research environment is amplified, and opportunities to provide a platform for training new investigators interested in the OUD area are increased. The CTN Research workforce development and dissemination program will provide multi-modal training, including didactic, experiential, and mentoring, to prepare research staff (regulatory personnel, study coordinators, project managers), post-doctoral fellows and faculty from a variety of disciplines (MD, PhD, PharmD, Nurse Practitioners, etc.) to participate in HEAL Initiative studies being conducted within the CTN.

FOA Number:
Summary:

The U.S. is in the midst of a devastating opioid epidemic. Since 1999, the number of overdose (OD) deaths involving opioids has quadrupled. These trends are magnified among American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) compared to other racial/ethnic groups. AI/ANs are second only to Whites in the rate of OD mortality (8/100,000 versus 12/100,000 deaths, respectively). Medications for opioid use disorder (OUD; i.e., methadone, buprenorphine and naltrexone) are considered the most effective treatment, reducing mortality and increasing abstinence and retention. However, numerous barriers limit the uptake of medications for OUD in tribal communities and within urban treatment settings serving AI/AN individuals. This is a two-phase formative research study to develop and test an implementation intervention for programs to provide medications to treat OUD specifically with AI/AN consumers. The objective of Phase I (12 months) is to develop a culturally centered implementation intervention to integrate medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) into health care/addiction specialty settings. The objective of Phase II (24 months) is to conduct a preliminary test of the implementation intervention at four sites serving AI/AN communities. Community-based participatory research (CBPR) methods will be used throughout both phases. This study will help with decreasing stigma and increase the utilization of MOUD in health care settings that serve AI/AN populations.

FOA Number: PA-18-591
Summary:

We propose to estimate the impact of expanded access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in prisons and jails on post-release rates of overdose. Our approach will use agent-based modeling, data collected through the parent study, existing surveillance data, and recently published data from similar settings to understand how different MAT interventions in the prison and jail setting impact overdose death post-release. We will examine the impact of standard of care/no intervention, providing access to depot-naltrexone alone, providing access to all three MATs to only those who were prescribed it prior to incarceration, and comprehensive provision of all three MATs on post-release rates of overdose. These models will incorporate advanced methodological techniques that will allow for the investigation of engaged treatment, program attrition, and other complex events on a population level. This study’s findings may be used by health agencies, policymakers, and correctional systems to inform their efforts to expand MAT access.
