Helping Individuals with Substance Abuse Disorder through Pharmacotherapy

Our innovative, award-winning Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program is a crucial tool for incarcerated individuals dealing with substance abuse disorder. Our guest this month is Statewide MAT Coordinator Steve Seitchik, and in this wide-ranging interview Steve explains what MAT is, its history in the DOC, what the next steps may be, and how the DOC sets up MAT to continue treatment upon reentry. Steve also shares about some of the successes he’s seen from the program so far.
