THE B-MAT PROGRAM
This program is a multi-discipline, collaborative team effort bringing together prescribing physicians, substance use therapy, case coordination and recovery programs for the treatment of opioid dependence with Buprenorphine. The program begins with an assessment by ADAS, Inc. or Potter County Drug and Alcohol Program to identify consumers to be referred to the physician and the psychotherapy services.
