Many regions of the country still have insufficient access to MOUD, and telemedicine has the potential to remove many barriers to accessing OUD treatment for patients living in rural and underserved areas.

Learning Objectives
  • Review barrier to accessing treatment for OUD in rural areas
  • Explore how telemedicine can remove barriers to OUD treatment
  • Address legal concerns regarding drug testing

  • Cite opportunities for behavioral health support
