DUI MAT Integration/Outreach Pilot Project Overview

The first DUI MAT Integration/Outreach Pilot Project was part of the State Opioid Response (SOR) grant, spanning the timeframe of January 1, 2018 – September 29, 2020. The California Association of DUI Treatment Programs (CADTP) was selected by DHCS, through an RFA process, to be the managing contractor. CADTP recruited DUI Programs to participate in the project through an RFA process that took place between February 2019 – April 2019. DHCS selected 27 DUI Program Subcontractors from the RFA respondents. Selected subcontractors established the program at their service locations in May 2019 and began offering DUI MAT services to clients in June 2019. The DUI MAT program was then available to clients through September 29, 2020, when the project ended.

The California MAT Expansion Project Overview

In an effort to address the opioid epidemic throughout the state, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) implemented the California Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Expansion Project. The California MAT Expansion Project aims to increase access to MAT, reduce unmet treatment needs, and reduce opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery activities. The California MAT Expansion Project focuses on populations with limited MAT access, including rural areas and American Indian & Alaska Native tribal communities. The California MAT Expansion Project is funded by grants from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) (Source: DHCS).
