Predictors of attrition with buprenorphine/naloxone treatment in opioid dependent youth.

by Dr. Rich on August 6, 2012

CONCLUSIONS: Prompt attention to those with early non-adherence to medication or an early opioid positive urine, markers available in the first 2weeks of treatment, may improve treatment retention. Extended Bup/Nal treatment appeared effective in improving treatment retention for youth with opioid dependence across a wide range of demographics, and pre-treatment clinical characteristics.
