SAMHSA Releases App to Help Treat Opioid Use Disorder

MATx App - Phone

Meet MATx, SAMHSA’s latest resource to improve access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder. MATx was developed to support practitioners who currently provide MAT, as well as those who plan to do so in the future.

This free app provides health care practitioners with immediate access to vital information and aggregates it in one place. Practitioners can access step-by-step guidance to become certified to prescribe buprenorphine, the latest training opportunities, and the most current MAT resources to provide effective, evidence-based treatment.

MATx features include:

  • Information on FDA-approved treatment approaches and medications for opioid use disorders;
  • A buprenorphine prescribing guide, which includes information on the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) waiver process and patient limits;
  • Clinical support tools such as treatment guidelines, ICD-10 coding, and recommendations for working with special populations; and
  • Access to critical helplines and SAMHSA’s treatment locators.
