Research and Teaching Interests
Dr. Andrews’s research interests include the impact of the organization and financing of addiction treatment on service access; gender, racial and ethnic disparities in service access; and adoption of medications to treat substance use disorder. She is Principal Investigator of a five-year award from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to determine whether health homes for Medicaid beneficiaries with chronic health conditions are effective in identifying and treating addiction and reducing the need for and costs of acute care addiction-related conditions. Andrews is also a Co-Investigator on two additional NIDA-funded projects: a survey of Medicaid coverage for substance use disorder treatment, and study of financing for opioid use disorder treatment within the criminal justice system as part of NIDA’s JCOIN initiative. She is also leading a project assessing an alternative payment model for financing opioid use disorder treatment in South Carolina.
