With drug overdose deaths reaching record numbers, the American Medical Association (AMA) and Manatt Health released a toolkit today to guide states on removing barriers to evidence-based patient care.
Stakeholders in every state can use this new resource with legislators, regulators and other officials to pursue policies that are working to help patients. States have taken myriad approaches to expand treatment for patients with a substance use disorder, and the toolkit provides evidence and feedback on what’s working where and why.
Funding for this initiative was made possible by grant no. 1H79TI083022 from SAMHSA.
