We are seeking women who have used or currently use opioids, are between the ages of 18-65, and a have experienced a traumatic event. A traumatic event is something incredibly frightening, such as physical assault, domestic violence, or sexual assault. We will interview participants for their preferences in treatment for 60-90 minutes. Interviews are confidential. Participants will be compensated $25 for their time.
This study proposes to collect pilot data that will inform a future grant application. We propose to complete interviews (60 min) on 25 individuals who are currently or have previously used opioids and are either currently on MAT or chose to not begin MAT. Semi-structured interviews will identify (1) what individual and treatment factors helped participants initiate MAT or, conversely, inhibited engagement in MAT, (2) what concerns they had about starting MAT, and (3) encouraging them to reflect on what additional information could have helped them initiate MAT sooner. Eligible participants will be compensated $20 for their participation in the study.
