Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a disease that has led to physical and social destruction for years in the United States. The State of West Virginia (WV) has been particularly affected by this crisis. This study intends to determine the feasibility of implementing a SUD treatment clinic in a rural health system in rural West Virginia. Decision-making tools, statistical analysis, and implementation tools, including SWOT analysis, EBC Matrix, the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) hexagon, the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Interactive Systems Framework, and the Pragmatic-Explanatory Continuum Indicator Summary will be utilized to determine the best course of action Implementation tools including to assess and evaluate the implementation strategy. The stakeholders in this implementation include providers, patients, non-profit organizations, community leaders, and hospital administration.
