The aim of this pilot study was to assess the effectiveness of buprenorphine among marginalized opioid dependent individuals in terms of retention in and cycling in and out of a harm-reduction program. This pilot study enrolled 100 participants and followed them from November 2005 to July 2008. The overall proportion of patients retained in the program at the end of 3, 6, 9, and 12 months was 68%, 63%, 56%, and 42%, respectively. This pilot study demonstrated that buprenorphine could be successfully used to treat marginalized heroin users (Authors).
