Bridge Clinic Model for Methadone Initiation Leads to High Linkage and Retention in Opioid Treatment
BOSTON – According to a new study from Boston Medical Center’s Grayken Center for Addiction, methadone administration for opioid withdrawal with direct opioid treatment program admission under the “72-hour rule” is possible in an outpatient bridge clinic and resulted in a high number of completed referrals to opioid treatment programs, along with high one-month retention rates. The findings in Drug and Alcohol Dependence show that a hospital-based bridge clinic model of care has the potential to improve methadone access amid the highest rates of opioid overdose death in U.S. history.
