Exploring Models for the Implementation of Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder: Knowledge and Application
At state and local levels, agencies have expressed a dire need for increased access to OUD treatment to encourage individuals to enter long-term recovery. Developed by the ATTC Network CLAS Standards Workgroup, this factsheet provides concise, practical guidance to facilitate decision-making for MAT expansion. It builds on the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) technical brief titled Medication-Assisted Treatment Models of Care for Opioid Use Disorder. This AHRQ technical brief describes background and research for promising and innovative MAT models in primary care settings; it provides an overview of the models and identifies gaps in the evidence base.
