Abstract

People with opioid use disorder (OUD) are vulnerable to negative health outcomes related to substance use and psychosocial issues, such as interpersonal trauma (IPT). Participants receiving buprenorphine completed a cross-sectional survey (July-September 2019). OUD outcomes were prospectively abstracted over a 28-week timeframe. More than a third reported recent IPT (40% women, 36% men). Sexual violence was more common among women than men (p = .02). For women only, IPT was associated with substance use during follow-up (β = 20.72, 95% CI: 4.24, 37.21). It is important for public health strategies in the opioid crisis to address IPT using sex- and gender-informed approaches.
