Inpatient versus Outpatient Treatment Outcomes for People with Opioid Use Disorder (NIH HEAL Initiative)
Funded by the NIH HEAL Initiative℠
This study will use a multi-state linked administrative database to compare opioid-related outcomes among Medicaid recipients admitted for treatment of opioid use disorder in outpatient and inpatient (or residential) facilities. Patient and organizational factors predicting higher retention in outpatient treatment for OUD will also be examined. These data will be used to generate hypotheses on how to improve retention in treatment.
