Who is the MAT Team
Each county in Vermont has a MAT Team funded through Blueprint for Health. The team is made up of Registered Nurses (RN) and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors (LADC) who provide support to providers MAT, screenings and referrals for people who are interested in treatment, and care coordination for current MAT patients.
What is Care Coordination?
MAT Team staff check in with patients at their normal office visits with the provider or sometimes in between visits. We check in with patients about their recovery or treatment needs, and offer support in helping them work towards their recovery goals. The MAT Team helps connect people to resources in the community to help strengthen or support their recovery and long term stability. MAT Team members who are LADCs can also offer counseling services when appropriate.
