The Legal Action Center’s MAT Advocacy Toolkit can help you fight for your right to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. MAT involves the use of medications, such as methadone, buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) and injectable naltrexone (Vivitrol), in combination with counseling. Dozens of studies have shown that MAT reduces illicit drug use, crime, and communicable disease. Yet courts, probation, parole, and child welfare officials often force people to stop MAT against their doctor’s recommendation.
