Collaborating to Heal Addiction and Mental Health in Primary Care (CHAMP)

Project Type(s):

The gold-standard intervention for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) is Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD). Because more patients with OUD need access to MOUD in primary care, the AIMS Center at the University of Washington is testing a Collaborative Care model to treat mental health disorders and OUD concurrently in primary care settings. The CHAMP study addresses three important objectives including: 1) Can OUD screening be effectively incorporated into primary care mental health screening protocols?; 2) Does implementing Collaborative Care for OUD and mental health disorders improve outcomes?; 3) What implementation strategies are effective at sustaining Collaborative Care programs that concurrently manage mental health disorders and OUD? In this pragmatic trial, 24 primary care clinics will be randomized to either adding OUD to their Collaborative Care program or maintaining Collaborative Care for mental health disorders only.
