Historically, only certified Addiction Treatment Centers could treat opioid addiction. But that has changed! Treatment with buprenorphine can now be available local primary care practices near you.
The "Have You Met MAT?" campaign was created by local community members in rural eastern Colorado. The products that were developed included posters, inserts, drink coasters, placemats, pre-movie advertisements, and letters to local judges and law enforcement. These messages and materials were distributed throughout the IT MATTTRs study region, and used community-based participatory research to spread the word about local outpatient treatment options available for opioid dependence and misuse.
