MAT Resources

IT MATTTRsTM partners with several organizations and programs to provide a range of MAT resources and support for practices and clinicians.

MAT Resources Toolkit

IT MATTTRsTM collaborated with several partners to provide a collection of resources, guides, and tools to assist practices in treating patients with opioid use disorder (OUD).  The MATerials Resource Toolkit provides sample handouts, protocols, and procedures for practices to effectively treat or refer patients with OUD.

If you are a practice that has completed the IT MATTTRsTM Practice Team Training and would like to request an additional hard copy of the MATerials toolkit, please complete the MATerials request form

The MATerials include 10 chapters of resources:

Practice Team Training in Opioid Use Disorder and Medication Assisted Treatment

Designed for primary care and behavioral health care teams, the IT MATTTRsTM Practice Team Training gives all members of the practice team a common set of knowledge and language around OUD and MAT, and supports team-based care for effective education and care coordination.  For more information, visit the Train Your Practice page. 

Clinician Waiver Training

Several national organizations offer online training for clinicians to receive the required waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. These include our partners at:

  • The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder Course provides required education for clinicians to identify, assess, diagnose, and manage patients with OUD.  ASAM is an approved provider by CSAT/SAMHSA of DATA 2000 training. 
  • Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS-MAT) provides trainings on a broad range of substance use disorder treatments, focusing on OUD, and offers waiver-qualifying MAT training to clinicians. 
  • Practice Innovation Practice Innovation ProgramProgram at the University of Colorado provides free trainings to providers to obtain their DEA waiver required to prescribe MAT for OUD through a hybrid training model.  This model offers a 4-hour online, group session with a practicing MAT clinician expert.  Trainees complete the remaining 4 hours on their own.  Visit the Practice Innovation Program for more information.

MAT Webinars

Our partners at the Practice Innovation Program at the University of Colorado also offers online forums and webinars that cover a variety of MAT topics.  Descriptions and schedules are available on their website. 

Substance Use Warmline

Have a question?  Need to talk with someone experienced in providing MAT? 

The National Clinician Consultation Center offers free and confidential clinician-to-clinician telephone consultation focusing on substance use evaluation and management for primary care clinicians through the Substance Use Warmline at (855) 300-3595.

Consultation is available Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m ET, from addiction medicine-certified physicians, clinical pharmacists, and nurses with special expertise in pharmacotherapy options for opioid use.

Voicemail is available 24-hours a day and this service is available to clinicians anywhere in the country. 

Home vs. Office for Medication Enhanced Recovery (HOMER)

HOMER is a new national study comparing three methods of induction for MAT for OUD. 

This study will help determine if certain patient and practice characteristics make patients better candidates for one method over the others.  Results will help fill a gap in the evidence around effectively treating OUD with MAT in primary care settings.  The three methods are: 1) home induction (asynchronous, unobserved), 2) office induction (synchronous, observed), and 3) telehealth induction (synchronous phone or video contact, observed). 

Fill out the HOMER Interest Survey if you’d like to be a part of this study.
