About 6.7 million rural residents were diagnosed with substance use disorders (SUD) in 2021. Only 6% of all persons diagnosed with substance use disorders in the United States received treatment in a one-year period. Providing the necessary support for successful recovery and addressing the substance use disorder epidemic requires a collaborative cross-sector approach. Join the Housing Assistance Council as we host a cross-sector collaborative conversation with professionals from criminal justice, behavioral and mental health, and housing discussing way to support recovery in rural communities.
