Research and Teaching Interests
Dr. Andrews' research interests include the impact of the organization and financing of substance use disorder treatment on service access, with a particular focus on public insurance coverage for substance use disorder. She is currently Principal Investigator on two R01 grants assessing the effects of Medicaid managed care on access to alcohol use disorder treatment (with Amanda Abraham) and opioid use disorder treatment (with Colleen Grogan). Dr. Andrews is also a Co-Investigator on two additional NIDA-funded projects: a survey of Medicaid coverage for opioid use disorder treatment, and a study of financing for opioid use disorder treatment within the criminal justice system as part of NIDA’s Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network (JCOIN) initiative. In collaboration with the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services, she is also leading a project assessing an alternative payment model for financing opioid use disorder treatment in South Carolina funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
