The Wolf Administration recently convened eight Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) summits across the state to promote awareness of MAT, share strategies for successful treatment and increase the number of health care providers using the federal waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in their practices. 

“The substance use crisis is an ongoing battle and we know that all of our efforts point toward getting those with a substance use disorder into treatment,” said Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine. “Buprenorphine and other medications are essential parts of an individualized plan to assist those in treatment. Treatment works and recovery is possible for those with the disease of addiction.”
