Medication-Assisted Treatment

Allegheny County, like much of Western Pennsylvania, is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. It is vitally important that county residents have access to the best and most effective treatment to support their recovery from opioid use disorders.

Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, combines medication and counseling/behavioral therapy. When clinically appropriate, MAT is the standard of care in the treatment of opioid use disorders. Research has shown MAT to be highly effective in improving recovery outcomes and reducing criminal behavior and also the risk of infectious disease.

The Allegheny County Departments of Health and Human Services, together with Allegheny HealthChoices, Inc. and Community Care Behavioral Health, issued a Joint Position Statement on Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders in Allegheny County.

This statement describes their expectations for contracted treatment providers and others who encounter or serve individuals with opioid use disorders. It states that every person entering substance use treatment for opioid use is entitled to the opportunity to learn about and consider MAT as a treatment option. It should be understood as a clear statement in support of an effective treatment continuum that includes MAT.
