Talking with Mitra Ahadpour, M.D., DABAM, who is the deputy director of CDER’s Office of Translational Sciences.

Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is a term used to describe the use of medication, along with other supports, to treat opioid, tobacco or alcohol use disorder. Although the term and method are not new, MAT has recently gained renewed attention as a key to combating opioid use disorder (OUD), which is a chronic health condition that can be life-threatening but also treatable.

Mitra Ahadpour, who is the deputy director of CDER’s Office of Translational Sciences and an addiction medicine specialist, discusses how MAT works, and its importance in the fight against the opioid crisis that is currently affecting communities across the nation.
