Medication Assisted Treatment, also know as MAT, is the use of medication in a primary care setting, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.
The goals of a MAT program are to 1. promote long-term recovery and 2. reduce the potential for overdose for patients who struggle with opiate, opioid and alcohol use disorders.
