Long-term Recovery in OUD

Study Overview

The goals of this project are: 1) Establish normative data on long-term recovery course of OUD across patients, community supports, and providers and 2) Quantify the impact of MAT on long-term recovery from OUD.

Study Description

Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) is a life-long disorder; however, most research and treatment use short-term approaches and follow-up. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is successful for short-term recovery from OUD, which has improved survival rates. This has resulted in a critical need to know how best to support individuals in long-term OUD recovery.
Meeting these goals will reduce OUD overdose and incidence by 1) Developing a comprehensive guide to best practices for MAT in long-term OUD recovery; 2) Characterizing normative data on recovery course(s) that can guide appropriate recovery expectations and reduce stigma; and 3) Providing proof of concept to strengthen subsequent federal funding applications studying long-term OUD recovery.
