If you have been reading about the opioid epidemic in Maine, you likely have heard about Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT). MAT combines behavioral treatments with medication to help control opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Dr. Kristen Silvia, a family physician who provides MAT in our community, will discuss the evidence behind it and how it can help people struggling with opioid use disorder. People who are struggling with opioid use disorder, loved ones who know someone struggling, or any interested community members are welcome to come learn about this treatment.
