Programs that integrate medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people with opioid use disorders into primary care settings as a way to expand access to appropriate prevention, treatment, recovery and wellness services for this condition. The goal of these programs is to help clients get a full continuum of care incorporating their primary medical and mental health providers as part of the larger substance use disorder treatment plan under a single program while still providing MAT services. Common components of existing care models include pharmacotherapy with buprenorphine or naltrexone, provider and community education, coordination and integration of opioid use disorder treatment with other medical and psychological needs, and psychosocial services and interventions. Models vary in how each component is implemented.
