Tate’s research focuses on the formation and impact of drug policy in the Americas. Overarching themes include the impact of problematic drug use, access to treatment in Maine and the history of drug policy formation; how drug use, addiction and recovery is understood and experienced by community members, law enforcement and health care providers; and specificities of how rural Maine women who use drugs are triply stigmatized as women, mothers and for their drug use. Tate frequently testifies in the Maine legislature and writes about policy.
