Detailed Description:

A randomized trial, in a hospital primary care clinic, for 24 weeks, of 168 opioid-dependent subjects, maintained on buprenorphine 3x/week, and counseled with Standard or Enhanced Medical Management. SMM is a brief intervention similar to that provided by primary practitioners to patients with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes. EMM is an intervention that provides education about the recovery process and advice about lifestyle changes and 12-step participation. Outcome measures include reduction in opioid use and abstinence from opioids, documented by 3x/week urine testing and self report.
