PhD-candidate Marianne Riksheim with colleagues has recently published a study of the Norwegian OMT programmes development in a ten year period. The study was published in the American Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment.
Opioid maintenance treatment (OMT) is associated with reduced crime among heroin users, but little is known about how crime changes during different phases of treatment. The aim of this study was to investigate changes in criminal convictions on a day-to-day basis before and after entry or discharge from OMT.
