New Mobile App to Support MAT for Opioid Use Disorder
Mobile App to Support MAT for Opioid Use Disorder
Opioid use disorder has become an increasing concern in the United States. As part of the HHS Opioid Initiative, SAMHSA developed MATx—a free mobile app that provides immediate access to information about medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder.
MATx is a one-of-a-kind resource that will make it easier for practitioners to provide the effective, evidence-based care that their patients living with an opioid use disorder desperately need.
The app includes:
Information on medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in the treatment of opioid use disorder and treatment approaches for practitioners
Clinical support tools, such as treatment guidelines, ICD-10 coding, and continuing education opportunities
Access to critical helplines and SAMHSA's treatment locators.
MATx is available for free download on mobile devices.
