Opioid use disorder is a nationwide issue and a serious problem in the state of Vermont. Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is currently being used to treat individuals with opioid use disorder. In an effort to address the opioid epidemic, more and more family medicine physicians in Vermont are becoming trained medication assisted treatment providers. This project aims to recognize some of the challenges faced by physicians who are currently prescribing MAT in family medicine clinics, as well as to identify the concerns of family medicine physicians who are not currently prescribing MAT. By determining barriers to providing MAT to patients with opioid use disorder in family medicine clinics, additional support and resources can be identified and implemented.
