In a recent article from Addiction Science and Clinical Practice, it explores the future utility of telemedicine and whether it will be the answer to rural expansion of medication treatment for opioid use disorder.

This could make it difficult for individuals in rural communities to gain access to the same quality care and resources that are available elsewhere.
