OVERVIEW

About January 11, 2019 - 9:58am

The Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) Expansion Project seeks to expand access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for persons with opioid use disorder (OUD) in rural Oklahoma; with the hope of reducing opioid use, emergency department visits, and overdose deaths.

We are working with primary care providers in rural counties in Northeast, Southeast, North Central, and South Central Oklahoma to expand MAT for persons with OUD. This project is being funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) in response to the opioid epidemic.

Nearly 19,000 individuals died nationwide as a result of prescription opioid overdose; and more than 17,000 from illicit drug overdose (more than 10,000 of which involved heroin) (3).
