Abstract

The objective of this study was to identify barriers and facilitators to the uptake of buprenorphine in seven southern Indiana counties. Barriers to the uptake of buprenorphine include biases and access to transportation. Multi-organizational SUD initiatives and favorable policies related to state-based insurance and telehealth are facilitators to the uptake of buprenorphine. Recommendations include education initiatives tailored to stakeholders and community members would improve outcomes.
