Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.

MAT is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates. Medications used in MAT are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
