About MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment)

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and other therapeutic techniques, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Medications relieve the withdrawal systems and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. Research has shown that when provided at the proper dose, medications used in MAT have no adverse effects on a person’s intelligence, mental capability, or physical functioning.

About the Conference

Bringing together approximately 100 senior leadership and staff from Federally Qualified Health Centers, Rural Health Clinics, Free & Charitable Clinics, as well as other NC safety-net partners that are dedicated to increasing access to Medication Assisted Treatment for individuals with Opioid Use Disorder in North Carolina, including agencies who were recently awarded a grant to expand MAT services. Through workshops and networking, this event provides an opportunity to explore new ideas, discover innovative strategies, and gain relevant training that contributes to improving MAT service delivery for North Carolina residents.

Systemic solutions to opioid use
OUD treatment for pregnant and parenting individuals
Contingency management
Addressing stigma and racial disparities in care
