Over the past two decades, the U.S. Department of Defense DoD has invested unparalleled resources into developing effective treatments for military-related psychological health conditions. Systematic reviews are a key component in the knowledge translation process and function to translate the available research into evidence-based health care guidelines that promote optimal clinical care. Although a few government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, have established evidence synthesis centers, there is no similar center within DoD that focuses exclusively on psychological health issues. Thus, the Southern California Evidence-based Practice Center, housed at the RAND Corporation, has been awarded a three-year contract to synthesize research on psychological health interventions important to military populations. This document is a systematic review performed during year two of this three-year project. The review will be of interest to military health policymakers and practitioners who oversee or implement Medication Assisted Treatment for opioid use disorder.
