Targeted Capacity Expansion: Medication Assisted Treatment - Prescription Drug and Opioid Addiction (MAT-PDOA)

June 22, 2017 | Addiction Policy Forum
SAMHSA is seeking applicants for FY17 that aim to expand access to Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) services for individuals with substance use disorders. MAT-PDOA targets states with the highest rates of emergency treatment admissions for heroin and opioids per capita, as well as states with the most significant increases in heroin and opioids. This program looks to provide: “1) an increase in the number of admissions for MAT; 2) an increase in the number of clients receiving integrated care/treatment; 3) a decrease in illicit opioid drug use at six-month follow-up; and 4) a decrease in the use of prescription opioids in a non-prescribed manner at six-month follow-up.”
