Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

MEDICATION-ASSISTED TREATMENT (MAT)

Clinicians who identify a patient with an opioid use disorder should provide or refer patients for MAT. MAT is the use of pharmacological medications – such as buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone – in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. Research indicates that a combination of medication and behavioral therapies can successfully treat opioid use disorder and help sustain recovery among some people struggling with addiction.
