Senior Consultant Julia Elitzer, Managing Principal Jonathan Freedman, Senior Consultant Mary Russell, and Managing Principal Margaret Tatar recently prepared the report “Strategies to Increase MAT Prescribing,” for the Association of Community Affiliated Plans through a grant from the Open Society Foundations.
The report examines how to address opioid use disorder through the promotion of medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT is an approach that combines behavioral therapy and the administration of three medications – methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone – to treat addiction.
