County Fact Sheets for Maine: Capacity to Treat Opioid Use Disorder with Opioid-Agonist Medication

This cross-sectional study examines the number of Medicaid-enrolled patients receiving treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD) in Maine at the state and county levels, drawing on 2019 data from Maine Medicaid claims and the Maine Prescription Monitoring Program. These estimates can inform efforts to increase access to OUD treatment in Maine, particularly for Medicaid enrollees and for buprenorphine treatment.

Selected estimates are presented below in county maps, but you can also download full tables (59.22 KB file) . We estimate

  • the distribution of OUD-related services across settings for Medicaid-enrolled patients with OUD (table 1);
  • counts of buprenorphine patients receiving buprenorphine from a prescriber in or outside their county (table 2);
  • counts of monthly buprenorphine patients, buprenorphine prescribers, and buprenorphine patients per buprenorphine prescriber for all patients and for Medicaid-enrolled patients (tables 3.1 and 3.2); and the count of Drug Enforcement Administration–registered buprenorphine prescribers by patient wavier limit and total buprenorphine prescribers by county (table 4).
