MATx empowers health care practitioners to provide effective, evidence-based care for opioid use disorders. This free app supports practitioners who currently provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT), as well as those who plan to do so in the future.
MATx features include:
- Information on treatment approaches and medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in the treatment of opioid use disorders
- A buprenorphine prescribing guide, which includes information on the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 waiver process and patient limits
- Clinical support tools, such as treatment guidelines, ICD-10 coding, and recommendations for working with special populations
- Access to critical helplines and SAMHSA’s treatment locators
The app is available for download at: http://store.samhsa.gov/apps/mat/index.html
