In response to the dramatic increase in heroin- and
opioid-related overdoses and continued negative health outcomes
stemming from tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, the National Council
for Behavioral Health and the American Academy of Addiction
Psychiatry, with funding from the Open Society Foundations (OSF) are
making available a new Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Learning
Community. This yearlong learning experience will provide up to six
(6) behavioral health organizations with the tools necessary to expand
their use of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).
Expert faculty from the National Council and the American Academy
of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) will provide technical assistance
in such areas as billing, workflow, and clinical protocols
necessary to support the use of MAT. Technical Assistance will be
provided through an in-person site visit, webinars, and coaching
calls. Sites will be asked to commit the time and attention of a
core team of staff who will report progress towards their
implementation goals via minimal data reporting.
This learning community is free for participating organizations
and is only available to National Council members. If your
organization is not a member, you can join prior to the start of the
learning community! Find out more information about membership here.

application here or check out the Request For Applications here.
Will you be one of the six (6) to start leading the way in the
field? Apply here by 7:00pm EDT on Friday, September 18th. If you
