Brief Summary:
The main goal of this study is to pilot test the community-based buprenorphine treatment (CBBT) intervention, examining buprenorphine treatment initiation, opioid use, and HIV risk behaviors. Two groups of participants will be followed for 60 days, with 3 research visits. One group will be enrolled prior to the CBBT intervention (pre-intervention), and one group after the CBBT intervention (post-intervention). Data sources will include questionnaires, urine toxicology tests, and medical record data. Investigators hypothesize that compared to the participants in the pre-intervention group, participants in the post-intervention group will be more likely to initiate buprenorphine treatment, reduce opioid use, and reduce high-risk HIV risk behaviors.

Arm Intervention/treatment
No Intervention: Pre-intervention
Participants will be enrolled prior to the implementation of the community-based buprenorphine treatment (CBBT) intervention.
Experimental: Post-intervention
Participants will be enrolled after implementing the community-based buprenorphine treatment (CBBT) intervention
Behavioral: Community-based buprenorphine treatment (CBBT) intervention
Community-based buprenorphine treatment (CBBT) intervention consists of three components which are delivered to staff of syringe exchange programs, including: 1) providing buprenorphine education, 2) facilitating access to buprenorphine treatment, and 3) providing support to individuals who initiate buprenorphine treatment.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. initiation of buprenorphine treatment [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    Medical record information will be extracted to determine initiation of buprenorphine treatment, which will be defined as a visit with a medical provider in which buprenorphine is prescribed.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. opioid use [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    Opioid use will be determined via self-report using the Addiction Severity Index and via urine specimens (e.g., urine toxicology testing).


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. HIV risk behaviors [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    Drug- and sex-related HIV risk behaviors will be assessed using a standardized risk assessment tool used in NIDA's Clinical Trials Network.
