Opioid Use Disorder Patients: Characteristics and Outcomes from Residential Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment

With Siobhan Morse, MHSA, CRC, CAI, MAC | May 26, 2018 12:00AM CDT

As opioid use has increased, questions regarding the specific needs and challenges of this population remain largely unanswered. These individuals are often classified as being difficult to treat and/or considered to possess more significant issues than other substance users. Speaker Siobhan Morse will review a study that seeks to determine what, if any, meaningful differences exist between opiate and non-opiate users who enter voluntary, private, residential treatment, and the impact of any differences relative to treatment motivation, length and outcomes.

Data for this study was drawn from 1,972 individuals, utilizing the Addiction Severity Index, the Treatment Service Review, the University of Rhode Island Change Assessment, and a satisfaction measure. Interviews were conducted at program intake, and one- and six-month interviews post-discharge. The results suggest more similarities than differences between the two groups on baseline characteristics, motivation, completion, engagement, retention, and levels of satisfaction, and post-treatment service use.
