Medication-Assisted Treatment vs. Abstinence-Based Treatment

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 | 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT

Chad Husted, LPC

The Substance Use Disorder field has been splintered for much of the last 50 years in regards to what is the most effective course of treatment for addiction: Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) or Abstinence-Based Treatment? The result is that both forms of treatment often continue to serve clients in a fragmented, non-integrated fashion.

This presentation will explore the history of both MAT and Abstinence Based Treatment. The program will explore the outcomes associated with both types of treatment, the challenges and barriers that both forms of treatment face and experience and ultimately seek to present possible integrated solutions for clients suffering from substance use disorders.
