The literature notes that mobile phones and mHealth applications present a significant opportunity to provide patients with substance use disorders with evidence-based treatment. Researchers and government agencies have begun to explore the use of mHealth to address a number of chronic conditions, including substance use disorders and HIV. Specifically, the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has hosted several challenge grants to develop innovative solutions to address opioid use disorders. In addition, SAMHSA is exploring the feasibility of utilizing mHealth as a recovery support for patients in MAT programs.
