  • The Impact of Medicaid Expansion on Rural/Urban Variations in Access to Substance Use Treatment
    Research indicates that substance use treatment access is insufficient in rural areas. We will make use of our rare access to restricted use NSDUH data to offer new insights about the impact of Medicaid expansion on access to substance abuse treatment among individuals with substance abuse disorders, analyzing 13 years (2004-2016).
