Summary

Although opioid agonist treatment (OAT) substantially reduces morbidity and mortality in individuals with opioid dependence, mortality is still higher than in the general population.

In this thesis, the main aim was to explore mortality and causes of death among patients receiving OAT who died during treatment in 2014 and 2015. The studies were cross-sectional, and data were collected from hospital records, the Cause of Death Registry, the Norwegian Patient Registry and autopsy reports.
