It is awesome to collaborate with a team across the state all working toward the same goal.Jeff Davied, The Awareness Program
Driving Under-the-Influence (DUI) Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Integration Outreach Project (DUI MAT).
The DUI MAT Project provides the framework to optimize DUI Programs to become new and effective access points for MAT and other treatment modalities. Approximately 118,000 people enroll in DUI programs each year. Prior to DUI MAT, there were no established mechanisms in place to specifically identify, assess, refer, and manage Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and Poly Substance Use Disorder (SUD) in DUI treatment programs.
DUI MAT data collection defines the population of OUD and Poly SUD persons who are reached through interaction with the DUI treatment system through integration and outreach activities.
The DUI MAT Project helps to:
- Fulfill the MAT Expansion Project objective to, “Transform entry points for individuals with opioid use disorders and create effective referrals into treatment” and the supporting goal of “adding 200+ new MAT access points throughout California.”
- Provides additional tools and resources aimed at reducing DUI recidivism, increasing public safety on the roadways, and helping more people who suffer from OUD and other poly-substance addictions access treatment.
- Best practices can be utilized to update future DUI Program regulations for DUI offender education, and the identification, assessment and treatment referral of OUD and Poly SUD.
The California Association of DUI Treatment Programs (CADTP) is the managing contractor of the Driving Under the Influence, Medication-Assisted Treatment (DUI MAT) Integration and Outreach Project for The MAT Expansion Project, State Opioid Response (SOR) 1-3.
The DUI MAT Project commenced on January 1, 2019. CADTP recruited and engaged with 27 DUI Programs providing DUI MAT services from June 1, 2019 to September 2020, with 18 DUI Programs participating in the COVID No Cost Extension (NCE) from November 2020 to March 2021. The Project renewed in SOR 2. CADTP recruited and engaged with 40 DUI Programs. Client services commenced in April 2021 and will continue through September 2022.
The Future of DUI MAT
DHCS approved the DUI MAT Integration/Outreach Project for inclusion in the State Opioid Response 3, MAT Expansion Project. CADTP will recruit 54 DUI Programs to participate as DUI MAT providers.
