Summary

This trial will recruit patients with opioid use disorder who present to the emergency department, and compare the effectiveness of two different medication treatments for engaging them in formal addiction treatment 7 days later.

Who is the study for?
Adults who visit the emergency department (ED) with moderate to severe opioid use disorder, not currently on medication-assisted treatment, and have a certain level of withdrawal symptoms are eligible. They must speak English or Spanish at sites with translated materials, provide contact information for follow-up, and consent to study procedures.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing two forms of buprenorphine: sublingual (under the tongue) versus extended-release (long-acting injection), to see which is more effective in engaging patients in addiction treatment one week after an ED visit. It includes training EDs across the U.S., randomizing participants into groups, and validating electronic health record data.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Buprenorphine can cause side effects like nausea, vomiting, constipation, muscle aches or cramps, cravings for opioids, difficulty sleeping (insomnia), irritability or mood swings. Some people might also experience injection site reactions with the long-acting form.
