 This study will build upon the Rural Expansion of Medication Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder (Rural MOUD, CTN-0102) to investigate and assess the impact of COVID on telemedicine practices and access to MOUD in rural communities. Study specific aims include 1) to assess changes in MOUD access and services (especially TM) in rural primary care settings over the COVID pandemic, and 2) to assess changes in OUD patients’ substance use (particularly opioids) and health conditions over the COVID pandemic.
