Are you struggling with opioid use disorder, addiction to heroin or prescription drugs? The practitioners at MD M.A.T.T. can lend support as you find a purpose, build a community and recover.
Maryland Medication Assisted Treatment and Technology or MD MATT is a Baltimore based team that treats a patient’s addiction to opioids with medication and a scientific approach. MD MATT uses technology in unprecedented ways to support our patient’s mental health and make their lives easier during recovery.
Technology has incredible power to help with recovery; it connects us, makes our lives easier, and is a lifeline in our time of need. It can also help facilitate lifestyle changes through reminders and progress tracking. Changing our habits is challenging. However, change is made easier when you’re armed with facts, a scheduled program, and have a clear purpose (health, relationships, career) for your progress.
At MD MATT, technology is used to support the patients during their time in recovery. Purpose and Community is what helps people progress and move forward.
Technology can help facilitate change, but it won’t lead to long term recovery. For that to happen, the patient first needs to have a strong grasp of their purpose (short and long term goals). Only then can they can start building a community to support them as they try and achieve their goals.
Science, Support, and Community are the keys to fighting opioid addiction. The science is medicine and technology, in most cases Suboxone and Smartphones. The support is in the passion that our staff exudes, but also in the way we utilize the powers of technology in ways that no other practice does. In the end, community is the true engine of recovery. True Recovery involves having the life skills to pursue your own purpose and build your own community while leading a healthy, fulfilling life. That is our ultimate goal at MD MATT, true recovery. We hope to help you find it.
A network that grows into a community can go a long way to achieving your goals. "A growing body of evidence suggests that peer-provided, recovery-oriented mental health services produce outcomes as good as and, in some cases superior to, services from non-peer professionals.” - SAMSHA Dr. Padron
Peer based models work! We have figured out that we can stop the physical aspect of opioid use disorder by using Suboxone or other buprenorphine products to eliminate physical withdrawal. Counseling is a great tool to manage the mental and social aspect of recovery, but it works even better when done within a community.
MD M.A.T.T. provides all the tools to help you build that community. Such as communication resources, life skills, and relationship evaluations.

• Personalized Treatment at a reasonable cost. Medicaid and Most Insurances Accepted
