How MAT can Assist Treatment in Addressing Recovery Needs Webinar

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an evidence-based treatment that combines behavioral therapy and medications to treat substance use disorders. With the widening incidence of harmful heroin and other opiate use, it is more important than ever that treatment courts acknowledge and overcome all obstacles to the use of MAT in conjunction with psychosocial interventions for all participants assessed to need MAT. The NADCP board of directors issued a position statement in 2012 supporting the use of MAT, and the Adult Drug Court Best Practice Standards includes support for MAT as an adjunct to treatment. As of 2015, grant solicitations from SAMHSA and BJA have included language addressing the administration of MAT, along with funding availability for MAT.  Additionally, this session will assist Drug Court practitioners to build on their awareness and understanding of the role of trauma exposures in their clients and themselves to develop systems of Trauma Informed Care (TIC) within their respective agencies and a culture of TIC within their specific Drug Court. This session will outline the research on MAT, a brief description of the most common medications used in MAT and how MAT may be necessary to address some traumatic exposures
