OMT National Patient Register (NorCOMT)
This study follows up heroin-dependent patients beginning OMT to see how their care progresses.
About the project
A fairly large percentage of OMT patients drop out of treatment, even though the majority continues.
This study will shed light on the factors that predict treatment dropout so we can find out which measures and initiatives help patients to remain in OMT.
The study also aims to shed light on outcomes such as quality of life and the creation of social networks as a result of OMT treatment. There has been little focus on these areas before.
A comparison group is planned with similar dependent patients who are starting drug free treatment.
