The ongoing drug overdose crisis is a continuing public health problem and is expected to grow substantially in older adults. Using a unique database of specialty providers, Jonathan Cantor and team assess whether the geographic availability of services was limited for older adults despite the increasing need for substance use disorder and opioid use disorder treatments in this population. Jonathan is a Full Policy Researcher at the RAND Corporation. His work focuses on the impact of government healthcare programs on substance use disorder and mental health treatment. Jonathan uses theoretical frameworks and research methods from health economics, policy analysis, and public health.
