Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and wrap-around medical and social services for treatment of people affected by opioid use disorder (OUD).
What is Opioid Use Disorder?
A problematic pattern of opioid use leading to impairment, distress or poor quality of life.
What is MAT?
Medication-assisted treatment safely combines behavioral therapy and medication, such as buprenorphine, to provide a whole-patient approach to treat opioid use disorder. In scientific studies, MAT has been shown to reduce the feeling of withdrawals, cravings and accidental drug poisonings.
The Northeast Tri County Health District is a participating agency in the Tri-County Opioid Treatment Network. We provide care coordination for individuals with opioid use disorder. Our care navigator assists in referring individuals for evaluation for medication-assisted treatment and offers assistance in accessing comprehensive medical and social support services.
