Medication Assisted Treatment Opioid Response (MATOR)
In 2013, an estimated 1.8 million people had an opioid use disorder related to prescription pain relievers, and about 517,000 had an opioid use disorder related to heroin use. MAT has proved to be clinically effective and to significantly reduce the need for inpatient detoxification services for these individuals. Paul Snyder, MA, LADC-S, examines how to provide a comprehensive "whole-patient" approach in the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates.
