This secondary analysis of data from protocol CTN-0010 ("Buprenorphine/Naloxone-Facilitated Rehabilitation for Opioid Dependent Adolescents/Young Adults") examined baseline patient characteristics to predict dosing of buprenorphine/naloxone for patients aged 15-21. Measures examined included sociodemographic characteristics, substance use, and clinical characteristics. The study found that the presence of pain predicts buprenorphine/naloxone dose levels in opioid-dependent youth, and that patients with pain have comparable opioid use outcomes to those without pain, but require higher buprenorphine/naloxone doses.
