Note: Following this reports’ development, we were given approval to change the term “Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)” to “Medications for Addiction Treatment (MAT)” or “Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD). ” We support this change and have begun to implement throughout our educational trainings, resources and website as we move forward.
