MANAGED MEDICATION-ASSISTED TREATMENT PHARMACY PROGRAM

A Stigma-Free Pharmacy Solution To Help Your Patients Reclaim Their Lives!

St. Matthews Pharmacy offers a managed medication-assisted treatment (MAT) pharmacy program that focuses on supporting clinicians who treat patients for opioid use.

St. Matthews’ stigma-free managed MAT pharmacy program in conjunction with your treatment protocol can help improve patient adherence to their treatment plan.

On-site Service in Your Clinic

St. Matthews delivers medications to your patients in coordination with their appointments. Medications are supervised by St. Matthews staff and are never stored in your practice overnight.

Better Patient Outcomes

Twice as many patients stayed active in treatment when using St. Matthews’ program compared with others.

Naloxone Program

St. Matthews can deliver life-saving naloxone to your patients with their addiction treatment medications, removing the additional burden of visiting a pharmacy and ensuring they have it if needed.

Vivitrol®

St. Matthews also offers Vivitrol®, an extended-release once-a-month injection, for providers to administer in their clinic. Select pharmacy locations offer injections by a pharmacist in a private suite at the pharmacy.

PDMP Review

St. Matthews pharmacists check prescriptions against the state’s prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) data and alert clinicians to potential risks.

A peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment demonstrated that patients using our on-site managed MAT pharmacy program:

  • 52% increase in the rate of patients remaining in treatment
  • 46% fewer opiate-positive lab tests
  • 41% fewer drug-related emergency department visits.
  • 100% of the patient respondents reported they would recommend our pharmacy program.

Our on-site managed MAT pharmacy program eliminates many of the barriers to treatment that patients face including stigma, challenges with transportation and limited or no availability of medication when needed, and can help improve patient adherence to their treatment plan.

In a recent survey, 92% of patients said that they are more likely to adhere to their treatment plans and attend their appointments when they receive medication at their doctor’s office through our program, and 98% said they feel that our pharmacy coordinators treat them with respect and care about their well-being.
