The Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Access Points Project is supporting organizations throughout California to address the opioid and substance use epidemic.
The project creates a community of practice that lifts up and makes available racially and culturally responsive population-based and place-based approaches for California’s most underserved communities.
MAT uses medications with counseling to treat the whole person. It is considered the gold standard of care for opioid use disorder. If you are looking for treatment, please visit ChooseChangeCA.org to find a treatment provider near you.
