Intravenous drug users are at high risk for medical illness, yet many are medically underserved.
Most methadone treatment programs have insufficient resources to provide medical care.
The purpose of this study was to test the efficacy of providing medical care at a methadone clinic site vs referral to another site.
Patients with any of four target medical conditions were randomized into an on-site group offered medical care at the methadone treatment clinic and a referred group offered medical care at a nearby clinic.
