Evidence for Action: COVID-19 as a Window of Opportunity to Normalize Medications for Opioid Use Disorder Access

This project will assess whether and how providers in Arizona implemented COVID-19-era policies related to MOUD provision and telehealth, and how these policies have affected patients’ access to treatment and outcomes. The project investigators will engage with tribal leaders as well as state policymakers, providers, and patient advisory boards; their findings will inform longer-term efforts to promote more equitable access to treatment for all Arizonans.
