Integrating Buprenorphine Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder in HIV Primary Care

pill bottles

This intervention is part of the Dissemination of Evidence-Informed Interventions project—the first SPNS project of its kind to apply a rigorous implementation science approach and evaluate intervention replication and fidelity of evidence-informed intervention models across the country.

This buprenorphine intervention has been informed and adapted from the best practice findings of a past SPNS initiative that yielded successful HIV care continuum outcomes among client participants.

A Substance Use + Public Health Intervention

Buprenorphine treatment delivered in HIV clinics is associated with decreased opioid use, increased antiretroviral use, higher quality of HIV care, and higher quality of life.

Replication Package Resources

These evidence-informed intervention resources were developed to support interested sites in replicating this intervention and the necessary implementation processes.

Additional Information


Care and Treatment Interventions (CATIs)

An outcome of the Dissemination of Evidence-Informed Intervention project is the development of Care and Treatment Interventions (CATIs). These are replication resources that have been tested across the country on four key evidence-informed intervention topics. CATIs help arm Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients with tested SPNS models that they can apply at their sites, clinics, and jurisdictions to advance the HIV care continuum and in advancing the goals to Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE).
