Mobile Medication-assisted Treatment (MAT) in Practice

To address the national opioid crisis, communities across the country are using medication-assisted treatment (MAT), a practice which pairs Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications with non-drug therapies such as counseling or cognitive behavioral therapy. Employing a “whole patient” approach, MAT is an effective and nationally recognized intervention to treat opioid misuse. Research has shown that MAT significantly increases patients’ adherence to treatment, reduces illicit opioid use compared with non-drug approaches, and is more effective than either behavioral intervention or medication alone. Unfortunately, impediments (including availability and geography) can keep individuals who may benefit from MAT from accessing treatment. One way to combat these impediments is to create mobile MAT units. This webinar explores this innovative solution.
