Medication For Opioid use disorder (Moud) – Patient and Family Resources

Patient-focused information about MAT and where to locate a provider.

*Historically, pharmacological treatment for opioid use disorder was referred to as “Medication Assisted Treatment” (MAT).” More recently, it has been determined that the better term is “Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD)” since it precisely describes this treatment form and carries less stigma. While many valuable resources in the Michigan Safer Opioid Prescribing Toolkit still use the term “MAT,” our website will refer to it as “MOUD” going forward.
