While research has documented important gender differences in ACEs in patients with OUD receiving treatment in urban areas, research has not shown whether these findings would generalize to rural and Appalachian areas, which are known to have lower ACE scores.

The consequences of CD are likely widespread, affecting rehabilitation and function. CD in those with SCI should be recognized, and potentially treated, in order to provid...
