Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Addiction
HELP IS HERE.
The consequences of untreated addiction can be tragic for the individual, family and community. Tahoe Forest Hospital District has implemented a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program to help people suffering from opioid addiction.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is one way to help those with opioid addiction recover their lives. There are three, equally-important parts to this form of treatment to help people recover:
- Support from family and friends
Direct referrals to the MAT Program can be made through the Internal Medicine/Cardiology clinic at (530) 582-1212.
