Opioid use disorder (OUD) has devastating effects on individuals, families, and communities. This presentation describes eINSPIRE (INtegrating Support Persons Into REcovery), a pragmatic randomized trial that tests the Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT) intervention delivered via group telehealth therapy compared to usual care. CRAFT is an evidence-based approach for the family members or close friends (referred to as Support Persons; SPs) of individuals with a substance use disorder. Patients and SP dyads were recruited across five community health systems in Southern and Northern California that provide buprenorphine treatment and mental health services. This presentation will describe our dyadic recruitment and implementation insights on the adoption, reach, and feasibility of intervening with SPs in these settings.
