Opioid Addiction Treatment
Opioid addiction is a chronic disease, like Diabetes, that can be
managed with proven treatment. Medication Assisted Treatment,
or MAT, uses FDA‑approved medications to treat opioid addiction.
MAT services can be provided in a variety of settings, including
through most primary care physicians, and can be covered by
Medi‑Cal, Medicare, and many private insurance plans. To find
substance use/addiction treatment near you, visit Choose MAT.
