Objectives—Provision of smoking cessation treatment is limited in office-based buprenorphine
maintenance treatment (BMT) settings. This study describes smoking and smoking cessation
behaviors among patients receiving office-based BMT.
Methods—Cross-sectional study of patients receiving office-based BMT at a community health
center in the Bronx, NY. We interviewed patients assessing sociodemographic, substance use and
tobacco use characteristics, including methods used for smoking cessation. We report simple
frequencies and explored associations of BMT characteristics with smoking behaviors.
Results—Of 68 patients, 87.7% were current cigarette smokers, 7.9% were former smokers and
4.4% had never smoked. Of lifetime smokers, 83.1% reported at least one prior quit attempt;
78.5% had used medication (75.4% used nicotine replacement therapy, 29.2% varenicline, and
9.2% bupropion). Ten patients (15.4%) reported using electronic cigarettes to try to quit smoking.
Stopping “cold turkey” (40.0%) and gradually decreasing the number of cigarettes smoked
(32.3%) were non-pharmacological methods of quitting tried most often. Use of behavioral
support, including stop smoking programs and counseling, was low. Higher dose and longer
duration of BMT was associated with greater smoking frequency.
Conclusions—Patients receiving BMT have a high prevalence of cigarette smoking, though
most have tried to quit, and have prior experience with pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation.
Efforts to optimize smoking cessation treatments among BMT patients are needed.

Tobacco use has declined over the past 50 years, but high rates of smoking persist among
individuals with opioid use disorders (OUD). Among patients receiving methadone
maintenance treatment (MMT), tobacco use ranges from 77% to 92% (Clemmey et al.,
1997; Nahvi et al., 2006; Richter et al., 2001), while estimates am
