Hi Christian,
Have you considered a selection model such as -heckprob-  ?
y1 would be your selection equation dependent variable, and y2 would be outcome equation dependent variable.
You could then explore the different margin options in [R] heckprob postestimation to get the effect in which you are interested.

Hope this helps,
