For people with substance use disorder (SUD), the road to recovery can be long and hard. And in rural communities, where rates of overdose mortality have increased at higher rates than in urban areas, limited access to treatment makes the journey even more difficult. The ROADSS program addresses that disparity by bringing treatment and resources that have been proven to save lives closer to home.
