A variety of tools and resources are available for providers and patients who offer or use medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services. As part of this environmental scan, a list of tools has been assembled for use in the implementation of MAT. Although the tools were not all created specifically for rural primary care practices, they are potentially useful in those and other settings. The tools and resources found by this environmental scan are listed and described in the tables that follow. They come from a variety of public and private sources. For example, many government entities, such as the Office of the Surgeon General, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Department of Veterans Affairs, Indian Health Service (IHS), and Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, have created a number of useful tools related to opioid use disorder (OUD) and MAT.
