Medication assisted treatment becoming new gold standard

KTBS - There is no denying there is an opioid crisis across the country. To curb the problem, there are Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) clinics that use opioids like methadone to help addicts get off of highly addictive drugs. Methadone may seem counterintuitive in treating addicts since it is an addictive opioid, but it is regulated by the federal government. MAT is becoming the new gold standard in treating drug addiction.
