Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
See link from SAMHSA
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2019 Provider’s Clinical Support System – Medication Assisted Treatment (Short Title: PCSS-MAT) grant. The purpose of this program is to expand the number of Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) 2000 waived providers, increase understanding of the importance of medication-assisted treatment and ultimately increase access to MAT through expanded prescribing of FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorders. Although the current initiative has provided multiple trainings and mentoring support, there still remains a significant need to increase the number of healthcare providers to address the nation’s lack of adequate access to care and treatment for opioid and other substance use disorders. The PCSS-MAT program will continue to provide up-to-date and evidence-based information to support the training of health professionals and to address the complex issues of addiction.
