Workshop Description:

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) effectively treats the neurological chronic relapsing disease of addiction just as insulin can be used to treat the endocrine chronic relapsing disease of diabetes. MAT is an evidenced based approach to treat patients with substance use disorders alongside counseling and behavior change. The purpose of this session is to familiarize professionals with the basics of medical treatments for addiction and to better equip them to discuss life saving strategies with their clients in recovery and those who are actively using.
