CARE Center Publication: Satisfaction with Group-Based Appointments Among Patients with OUD in an Urban Buprenorphine Clinic

Check out a published study that surveyed patients who participated in group-based appointments in our low-barrier, OUD clinic! These groups of participants all share the common diagnosis of OUD and interact with each other and the provider. Of 39 respondents, almost 70% of participants agreed that their medical needs were met during these appointments. In addition, the majority reported better adherence to treatment plans and agreed that the information received were valuable in their own care. This study shows that innovative delivery models to increase the capacity and access to treatment may be helpful in improving outcomes in those with OUD.
