I'm not sure I understand what you are saying but I'll have a crack.
You could define an indicator within the combination (opioid_id,
contact) and reshape using that.

. sort opioid_id contact
. by opioid_id contact: generate recno=_n
. reshape wide relevant_data_stubnames, i(opioid_id) j(recno)

Hope this helps.
