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

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).
