ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01082679
Verified March 2010 by University of Wisconsin, Madison. Recruitment status was: Active, not recruiting
This pilot study is examining the feasibility of a primary care and a specialist treatment (methadone clinic) model of treatment for 15 offenders who are part of two community supervision programs: Drug Court and the Treatment Alternative Program (TAP) in Dane County. The questions addressed by future larger studies based upon the current pilot-feasibility study will center around whether access to primary health care as opposed to more traditional methadone treatment services will improve the health and criminal justice outcomes for participants.
The proposed study will (1) determine feasibility of monitoring Dane County Drug Treatment Court and Treatment Alternative Program participants in primary care as opposed to the usual standard of specialty care; (2) identify barriers to treatment initiation and retention; and (3) foster a multi-disciplinary collaborative treatment model.
