The Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Workforce: Recovery & Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Summit brings together registered and certified SUD counselors and other disciplines of the behavioral health workforce to provide education and resources pertaining to MAT, tools to address and reduce stigma, and ways the workforce can join California’s current efforts to address SUD emerging epidemics.
The goals of the Summit are as follows:

- Share MAT facts, outcomes, and the benefits that MAT has on individuals to achieve a sustainable recovery.
- Provide tools designed to initiate MAT conversations and available resources aimed at connecting individuals to MAT.
