Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is widely accepted as the most effective form of treatment for individuals with opioid use disorder. MAT options have offered a pathway to recovery for many individuals who have found sustained, long-term recovery with the support of these medications and services. Despite this, MAT is often categorized as a form of harm reduction. In fact, MAT is known to provide many life-saving harm reduction benefits to individuals who use substances. So, which is it? A pathway to recovery or a form of harm reduction? In this training, attendees will explore how MAT can serve in both of these critical roles. Individuals working in MAT settings will learn how to harness the important benefits of harm reduction work while still offering opportunity and hope for recovery.


Chrissie S. Martin, MA, LMFT, LAC-S, CS, is an Addictions Professional from Charleston, South Carolina. For the last 16 years, she has been working in the field of opioid treatment.

Martin represents South Carolina on the Board of AATOD, the American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, and is the president of the South Carolina chapter. She serves on the board of Faces and Voices of Recovery Lowcountry, a local recovery community organization. Martin is a passionate advocate for individuals and families in and seeking recovery and a believer in the value of evidence-based practices, MAT, harm reduction, and supporting multiple pathways to recovery.
