Medication Assisted Treatment

Substance use disorders affect millions of people around the world, creating problems not just for those suffering from them but also for their families and communities.

What is Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) combines the use of medications with behavioral health interventions and is considered to be the gold-standard for addiction treatment. MAT has been shown to be effective for treating opioid use disorder, alcohol use disorder, and stimulant use disorder.

Behavioral Health Care

At MATClinics, we offer the full complement of treatment in an outpatient setting. While medications are crucial in MAT, they are even more effective when combined with behavioral health care.  MATClinics encourages its patients to take advantage of behavioral health care, especially at times of stress. These services help address the underlying psychological, social, and emotional factors that contribute to substance use disorders.
