Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT): Who is it For?

This training is good for medical professionals, law enforcement, social workers, clinical professionals to learn and understand the medication assisted treatment for substance use disorders and help reduce the stigma surrounding the treatment and understand who it is truly for.

Medication-Assisted Treatment or MAT is a whole-person treatment option designed to help people aged 18 and up who have a severe addiction to alcohol or opioids.
