Synopsis:

  • COVID-19 pandemic created more barriers to care for those suffering from Substance Use Disorder (SUD).
  • Shuttered recovery centers and attention redirected from SUD to the pandemic left those experiencing substance misuse fewer resources for help. But the lack of virtual resources is also a longstanding challenge.
  • According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, of the 19 million adults who needed substance use care in 2016, only 10.8 received support.
  • Barriers to support include expense, unrealistic time commitment away from work and family, and perceived shame of seeking help.
  • Virtual SUD support is a solution to extend help to those in need. Virtual SUD support is accessible, cost-effective, and allows anyone struggling with substance use disorder to incorporate life-changing cognitive-behavioral tools into their daily habits.
