What is the Office Based Addiction Treatment (OBAT) Program?
The OBAT program is an outpatient medication-assisted treatment that includes therapy and case management. This is a whole-person treatment model widely used to address opioid addiction and involves the use of medication to block the effects of or reduce cravings for heroin and other opiates/opioids. Also referred to as Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), it involves the prescription of medication in combination with counseling, case management and referral to other supportive services and programs.
This type of treatment has been demonstrated to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings as well as the risk for relapse, the spread of infectious diseases, and overdoses including those that result in death.
