A Mobile App To Support Medication-Assisted Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder
In 2015, nearly 2.4 million Americans had an opioid use disorder, and an estimated 80 percent of these individuals did not receive treatment.
MATx empowers health care practitioners to provide effective, evidence-based care for opioid use disorder. This free mobile app supports practitioners who currently provide medication-assisted treatment, as well as those who plan to do so in the future.
MATx features include:
- Information on treatment approaches and medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in the treatment of opioid use disorders and treatment approaches for practitioners
- A buprenorphine prescribing guide, which includes information on the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 waiver process and patient limits
- Clinical support tools, such as treatment guidelines, ICD-10 coding, continuing education opportunities, and recommendations for working with special populations
- Access to critical helplines and SAMHSA’s treatment locators.
