Proposed Project Evaluation of Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid use disorder—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description CDC seeks a three-year OMB approval to collect evaluation information for Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid use disorder. About 2.4 million people aged 18 or older have opioid use disorders (OUDs) real-world outpatient settings. The study aims to have 3,000 participants from real-world outpatient settings to better understand the relationship between type of MAT and individual, provider, and contextual characteristics related to retention in treatment and abstinence from opioid use. The sites will be located across 10 diverse metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) with four sites in each MSA. At each site, about 75 participants are expected to participate for a total of 300 per MSA. Across all MSAs, the study will aim to have 750 client participants in each of the four treatment conditions (MMT, BUP, NAL, and COUN). The study will use a mixed-method approach using quantitative methods such as multilevel latent growth models, propensity score matching, latent class analysis and advance mediation analysis and qualitative methods such as interactive coding and analysis for common themes. The only cost to respondents will be time spent responding to the survey/screener. in the United States. At any given time, only half of these people receive some form of treatment, which may include medication-assisted treatment (MAT) or abstinence-based psychotherapy or selfhelp treatments (i.e., counseling without medication [COUN]). The rise in opioid overdose deaths, up from 2014–2015 due partly to a 72% rise in synthetic opioid overdose deaths alone, shows that engaging and retaining clients in OUD treatment is an urgent public health need. Only a few studies are available to help clients and providers make informed decisions about the risks and benefits associated with the different types of MATs. This information is crucial because even though each MAT drug helps prevent withdrawal symptoms and decreases cravings, differences in treatment approach and settings influence how people respond to the medication and, thus, their long-term treatment success. The purpose of this evaluation is to conduct an epidemiologic, mixedmethods evaluation of OUD treatment in ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondents Instrument name Provider site staff ..............................

Brownsville, TX .......................................................................... ORR has been identifying additional capacity to provide shelter for potential increases in apprehensions of UC at the U.S. Southern Border. Planning for increased shelter capacity is a prudent step to ensure that ORR is able to meet its responsibility, by law, to provide shelter for Unaccompanied Children referred to its care by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The expansion supplement grants will support the need to increase shelter capacity to accommodate the increasing numbers of UCs being referred by DHS. All grantees have the infrastructure, VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:20 Jun 16, 2017 Jkt 241001 licensing, experience and appropriate level of trained staff to meet the service requirements and the urgent need for expansion of services. The grantees provide residential services to UC in the care and custody of ORR, as well as services to include counseling, case management, and additional support services to the family or to the UC and their sponsor when a UC is released from ORR’s care and custody. ORR has specific requirements for the provision of services.

The expansion of the existing program and its services through this supplemental award is a key strategy for ORR to be prepared to meet its responsibility to provide shelter for UC referred to its care by DHS and so that the U.S. Border Patrol can continue its vital national security mission to prevent illegal migration and trafficking, and to protect the borders of the United States.
