Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is a type of treatment used to help someone with an opioid substance use disorder. The ultimate goal is for the patient to be able to fully function in society. This form of substance use disorder treatment is very successful for anyone wanting to work towards a life free from opioid abuse. A few examples of the opioids this treatment program addresses include Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Heroin, Fentanyl, and Morphine.
