Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Because discharged methadone maintenance patients represent a population at particularly high public health risk, the authors studied such patients 1 year after their discharge from a methadone program. METHOD: The locations of 94 of 110 discharged patients were successfully determined 1 year after discharge. Nine (10%) of these patients had died, 37 (39%) were already reenrolled in treatment, and 7 (7%) did not require treatment. The 41 remaining subjects were randomly assigned to either the enhanced outreach counseling condition (N = 27) or a standard referral condition (N = 14). RESULTS: Within 2 weeks following this intervention, 17 (63%) of the 27 patients in the enhanced outreach counseling program and one (7%) of the 14 patients not in the program had reenrolled in treatment. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that enhanced outreach counseling may be an effective outreach strategy as well as a risk-reduction for discharged methadone maintenance patients.
