Abstract
Drug overdose deaths from opioids are rapidly increasing, and as a result, researchers and public health officials are addressing the issue through multiple approaches. Wayne County has seen an increase in drug overdose deaths; thus a county-university partnership (Partners: Wayne State University, Wayne County, and Detroit Mental Health Authority) has been formed. Using monthly reports on authorization of treatment, and admission provided, by the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority, the collaboration can monitor the gap in SUD (Substance Use Disorder) treatment. The objective is to identify deficiencies in the system and suggest targeted cost-efficient strategies. The primary research question asked if patients that were referred to SUD treatment received their care.
