We’re so excited to see the positive results of this program to assist federally qualified community health centers in the implementation of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction.

CBAM’s Dr. Keith Heinzerling was one of several MAT experts engaged by the program to provide direct coaching assistance to participating health centers. Program highlights include a shift in perspective about addiction and the use of MAT, as well as an increase in the number of patients receiving treatment at participating clinics.
