Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) Standards came into force in April 2022. The MAT Standards define what is needed for consistent delivery of safe and accessible drug treatment in Scotland to reduce drug deaths. 

Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) Standards are being prioritised and introduced to help reduce drug death, other harms and to promote recovery. The Standards provide a framework to ensure MAT is safe, effective, accessible and person-centred to enable people to benefit from treatment for as long as needed.
