Patients receiving medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combined with counseling for opioid use disorder (OUD) see significant improvements – not only in drug-use reduction, but also in mental health, legal issues and interpersonal relationships.

That’s according to a new white paper from Baymark Health Services, which found that illicit drug use decreases by 65% over the first three months of MAT. Drug use continues to decrease by an additional 23% over a full course of treatment, though, patients who use fentanyl experience less favorable outcomes.

Lewisville, Texas-based BayMark bills itself as North America’s largest MAT provider, with more than 400 treatment centers offering services including withdrawal management, partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and counseling.
