The prevalence of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) in the United States has been described as an epidemic, and rural areas have been affected in particular. A treatment paradigm called Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) has been demonstrated to be effective at treating OUD, and more and more rural, primary care clinics are establishing MAT programs. One such clinic is Hudson Headwaters Health Network, a FQHC in Upstate New York. I wrote a literature review and distributed it to staff involved in MAT program design, and I also wrote a practical evidence guide for MAT providers. Providers completed a survey assessing the evidence guide.
