A Pilot Randomised Controlled Trial of Assertive Treatment Including Family Involvement and Home Delivery of Medication for Young Adults with Opioid Use Disorder

This is an academic paper that evaluated a pilot called the Youth Opioid Recovery Support (YORS) program, which is a multi-component intervention, including home delivery of medication and family involvement, designed to improve engagement and adherence to extended-release naltrexone for young adults with opioid use disorder (OUD). Preliminary results are promising. This program has been highlighted and supported by the Arnold Ventures foundation.
