About the program:
Alcohol Use Disorders and addictions to opiate painkillers and heroin continue to plague communities across the United States. All levels of government have focused on implementing strategies designed to prevent the use of these substances or mitigate the effects of these devastating substance use disorders. A primary focus has been on increasing the treatment options of individuals seeking care using proven scientific methods to improve outcomes. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) has long been advocated for by scientists, but states, community-based organizations and practitioners have been slow to integrate MAT within existing models of treatment even though access can make the difference between life or death. This presentation aims to dispel myths that support stigma and improve the understanding of MAT and its potential in improving outcomes.

Learning Objectives:
a. Identify medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as an evidence-based modality in the treatment of Opioid Use Disorders (OUD) and Alcohol Use Disorders (AUD).
b. Understand the evidence supporting the use of MAT.
c. Describe the role of MAT in the treatment of OUD and AUD.
d. Describe the current FDA-approved medications, common protocols and proper treatment integration techniques.


2 Continuing Medical Education Credit Hours. Approved for Medical Professionals.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of MSMA and Oxford Treatment Center. MSMA is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The MSMA Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.
