NACHC has released a new, data-driven issue brief showcasing how health centers have responded to a rapidly growing need for substance use disorder (SUD) services over the past two decades. The brief, Rising to the Challenge: Community Health Centers are Making Substance Use Treatment More Accessible than Ever, shows how health centers across the nation are breaking down barriers to care, integrating behavioral health with primary care, and providing community-level solutions to towns and cities hit hardest by substance use disorder, including opioids. The brief also lays out important policy supports to build on health centers’ important contributions to battling SUD.
