Reducing Opioid Mortality in Illinois (ROMI) is a multi-site randomized-controlled trial that seeks to examine the impact of a case management-based intervention on medication-assisted treatment uptake and improved health and criminal justice outcomes among individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) exiting jails and prisons located in five diverse urban and rural areas Illinois that experience the high rates of OUD, overdose, and related harms. The University of Illinois Chicago School of Public Health serves as a consortium partner to the University of Chicago for this award. Under this partnership, the ROMI trial will be carried out using a hub-and-spoke model for the intervention using centralized long-standing social services infrastructure at the Community Outreach Intervention Projects at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health. ROMI will be conducted using a hybrid type-one effectiveness implementation design, which simultaneously test effectiveness and collect contextual data to inform implementation. View sponsor listing.
