Opioid Addiction TreatmentCartoon image of pill bottles with people stuck inside three bottles and pills in the other two

Opioid addiction is a chronic disease, like Diabetes, that can be

managed with proven treatment. Medication Assisted Treatment,

or MAT, uses FDA‑approved medications to treat opioid addiction.

MAT services can be provided in a variety of settings, including

through most primary care physicians, and can be covered by

Medi‑Cal, Medicare, and many private insurance plans. To find

substance use/addiction treatment near you, visit Choose MAT.
