Buprenorphine for Prisoners: Preliminary Findings at One-Month Post Release

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Prisoners with pre-incarceration heroin addiction rarely receive drug abuse treatment while incarcerated or upon release. This study examines whether buprenorphine treatment, effective with regard to reducing heroin addiction and crime in community settings, can yield similar findings with pre-release prison inmates who were heroin-dependent before incarceration. Participants are randomly assigned to one of four conditions: 1) buprenorphine+ counseling in prison, with referral for continued treatment at a maintenance treatment program (MTP) upon release; 2) buprenorphine+counseling in prison, with referral for continued treatment at a community health center (CHC) upon release; 3) counseling only in prison, with referral for buprenorphine+counseling at a MTP upon release; and 4) counseling only in prison, with referral for buprenorphine+counseling at a CHC upon release.
This paper focuses on outcomes at 1-month post-release—the time point by which most untreated prisoners with heroin addiction histories relapse and recidivate. Outcome measures include: 1) urine test results for opioids; 2) self-reported heroin use; 3) self-reported criminal activity; and 4) reincarceration.
