Medication-assisted treatment Training(MAT):
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. Led by some of our medical prescribers and experts in the field of MAT, this training will discuss how and why MAT is prescribed in the treatment of some substance use disorders. Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat these disorders, and for some people struggling with addiction, MAT can help sustain recovery. MAT is also used to prevent or reduce opioid overdose.
Facilitated by the medical director of our Devon location, Dr, McWilliams
