About this Webinar
This 1-hour interactive session will explore the ‘life-saving’ role of Medical Assisted Treatments (MAT), specifically outlining assistive technologies, and how they can combat overdose deaths. The content of the session has been created for those who might have limited background in addiction and recovery, as well as those more advanced in clinical/administrative knowledge. We must collaborate to finally put an end to the staggering numbers of deaths, which continue to climb every year.
