SPNS Initiative: An Evaluation of Innovative Methods for Integrating Buprenorphine Opioid Abuse Treatment in HIV Primary Care Settings, 2004-2009

Background

The Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Buprenorphine Initiative was designed to determine the feasibility and effectiveness of integrating buprenorphine opioid abuse treatment into HIV primary care settings with an ultimate goal of improving the health of people living with HIV and opioid dependency. This initiative began in September 2004 and was led by the New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), which served as the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center. NYAM coordinated the multi-site evaluation of the demonstration sites and provided them with technical assistance.
