Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment (MAT)

On December 29, 2022, Congress passed the Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment (MAT) and Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Acts to:

  1. expand access to buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorder, and
  2. normalize and enhance substance use care across healthcare settings. 

These new mandates will help to expand the use of buprenorphine in different settings. It is no longer required to obtain a Data Waiver in order to prescribe MOUD. Now, any medical provider with a DEA License is permitted to prescribe MOUD. The Maryland Addiction Consultation website has been updated with a page dedicated to the Mate/Mat acts.
