Today, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) launched a new smartphone app designed to provide essential resources and information to doctors interested in utilizing MAT to treat patients with a prescription opioid abuse disorder (POUD).
The MATx mobile app is both Apple- and Android-compatible, and can be downloaded here for free, as well as accessed through respective app stores. The app is one of the latest measures taken by the SAMHSA to spread awareness about MAT to primary care physicians and other health care providers.
