Medically Assisted Treatment
The best care
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Medically Assisted Treatment, or MAT is the use of medication, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. SAMHSA research shows that when treating substance-use disorders, a combination of medication and behavioral therapies is most successful. Medication-assisted treatment is clinically driven, with a focus on individualized care on a case by case basis.
