Medication-Assisted Treatment

Recovering from opioid addiction is a difficult journey, but you don't have to do it alone. There are many community organizations with programs to help you recover from opioid addiction, including ones that provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Nash UNC offers MAT treatment in the Emergency Department with a planned transition of our patients to care by our community providers for continued comprehensive treatment

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) defines Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, which is effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD) and can help some people to sustain recovery.

MAT programs provide a safe and structured delivery of medication to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms of opioid addiction. When combined with behavioral counseling, MAT medications can improve overall well-being and decrease the risk of relapse, with low potential for adverse effects.

MAT is often paired with additional therapies, as the care team sees fit. The goal of MAT medications is to promote long term recovery.
