Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) has long been a controversial subject. This subject is getting even more attention now that we are in the middle of a nationwide opioid crisis. This training will discuss medication assisted treatment; its pros and its cons. We will talk about the different medications and how they work. We will also talk about harm reduction, meeting clients where they are, and the medical model. We will also talk about what our fears are as counselors and medication assisted treatment.
