What is MATCONNECT?
Free Medications for Addiction Treatment to Achieve Recovery from Substance Use Disorders.
MATCONNECT is a free outpatient program of the Coalition of Orange County Community Clinics that provides assistance to individuals to find access to treatment for substance use disorder. We provide a patient-centered approach that integrates physical and behavioral health services to achieve recovery and the ability to live a self-directed life.
Who is eligible?
Patients with moderate to severe substance use disorders that may have been to multiple abstinence-based programs but do not have the ability to remain sober and stable.
MATCONNECT is a free program available to individuals who qualify for Medi-Cal. Uninsured and undocumented patients are also able to access treatment on a sliding fee scale.
What treatment is provided?
The MATCONNECT program uses FDA-approved medications including Subutex, Suboxone, Sublocade, or Vivitrol for substance use disorder in combination with counseling and behavioral health therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment.
The medications listed are for treatment of opioid and alcohol use disorder, not methamphetamine, cannabis, benzodiazepines, and sedative-use disorder.
Who treats the patients?
Outpatient community-based healthcare clinics in Orange County provide medications for addiction treatment, as well as other primary and preventative medical services such as dental, behavioral, and vision services, regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.
