We explore individual-level, network-level, and community-level characteristics associated with MOUD uptake in young people who inject drugs and their support network members.
Stigma at both the individual and community levels was significantly associated with MOUD uptake (though in different directions). Greater individual-level stigma was associated with a higher likelihood of MOUD uptake, while having a more normatively stigmatizing community environment was associated with a lower likelihood of MOUD uptake. Using heroin and cocaine simultaneously and having a larger support network were associated with a greater likelihood of MOUD uptake.
