Funded by: NYU Langone Center for Opioid Epidemiology and Policy
Project dates: March 2020 - March 2021
Principal Investigator: Frank, David

This study used semi-structured interviews with Medication for the Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) patients and treatment providers, as well as people who work for government administrative organizations that oversee MOUD provision, in order to assess the ability of MOUD treatment programs to meet the needs of the current cohort of MOUD patients.

Findings from this study will be used to help identify and describe different ideological approaches to treatment; identify and describe key issues in regard to access and barriers to MOUD; establish feasibility; and inform the development of more specific research questions and/or hypotheses to be evaluated.
