Condition: Opioid Use Disorder

Participants Requirements:

  • Admitted to an inpatient bed at Cedars-Sinai
  • At least 18 years old
  • Have a probable Opioid Use Disorder diagnosis, as determined by a screening questionnaire


The purpose of this study is to determine whether a special care team called the Substance Use Treatment and Recovery Team (START) can help people with problems related to opioid use. The START will offer assessment and treatment of problems related to opioid use while patients are in the hospital and will assist with referral for continuing care after discharge.
