The article discusses a study which found that despite the implementation of policies designed to increase access to treatment for opioid addiction, many people still do not receive the necessary care. The study, led by Kao-Ping Chua, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Susan B. Meister Child Health and Evaluation Research Center at the U-M Medical School, analyzed data from over 36,000 adults with opioid use disorder and found that only 18% received medication-assisted treatment (MAT), the gold standard for opioid addiction treatment.
