We welcome you to "Medical Assisted Treatment of America." The website's, http://www.medicalassistedtreatment.com, aims to raise awareness and understanding of substance abuse, the problems it creates, and the ways to deal with these problems. Our aim is: 1) Educate the public about the disease of addiction and of the various treatments available. Help reduce the discrimination and stigma associated with patients with addiction disorders. Serve as a conduit connecting patients to treatment providers. 2) Acknowledgment as reported by The World Health Organization, "Substance Abuse Dependence is as much a disorder of the brain as any other neurological psychiatric disorder. 3) Undeniable evidence, "Of various treatments available, methadone maintenance treatment combined with attention to medical, psychiatric, and socio-economic issues, as well as drug counseling, has the highest probability of being effective." 4) Information and assistance to improve the quality of services to people with a substance abuse problem and their families and careers. Original articles on key issues and up-coming legislation that will have an impact on substance-abusers lives. 5)Legal news, information and assistance to substance abusers on how to obtain their methadone and prescribed medications should they find themselves incarcerated, as well as inform them of their rights, of being a patient, and as a prisoner, too.
