It’s official: We passed the MAT Act.

It’s official: We passed the MAT Act.

On December 29, 2022, the federal Omnibus bill containing the Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment (MAT) Act was finally signed into law, officially eliminating the outdated X-waiver and making medication assisted treatment more accessible for our loved ones in New Jersey and across the entire country! Take a minute to celebrate, huge federal wins like this don’t happen every day, and this is life-changing and life-saving stuff.

MAT Act moves in Congress

MAT Act MOVES in Congress – and we got a shout out!

The MAT Act is moving to the House floor! On May 18, 2022, the MAT Act (or Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment Act) went to markup and finally passed out of the House Energy & Commerce Committee. We’re thrilled to be another step closer to passing this bill out of the House and moving it forward in the Senate, and (hopefully) soon making this life-saving treatment more widely available to our communities in New Jersey and across the country – especially for people on Medicaid and without insurance.

Enough Not One More

Working together to increase access to MAT (Medication-Assisted Treatment) in Spring 2022

Last week, staff and members from Not One More NJ met with Valerie Mielke, the Assistant Commissioner for the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services at the NJ Department of Human Services. We were also joined by Adam Bucon, State Opioid Treatment Authority, and Michael Petruzzelli, Policy Director for the DHS. We talked about our shared goal of expanding access to medication assisted treatment (MAT) and mobile MAT units in New Jersey, and how we can work together to make sure that people struggling with substance abuse disorder are able to get treatment that meets their needs.
