What is MAT Chat?

A webinar meeting for waivered providers facilitated by one of Montana’s MAT authorities providing a venue for discussion and support to ultimately improve care delivery for patients in a MAT program.

Goals of MAT Chat

  • Offer a place for connecting Montana waivered providers to bring their questions and/or learn of resources for complex questions/situations;
  • Have on each webinar/call at least one knowledgeable MAT provider;
  • Increase the number of MAT waivered providersĀ in Montana; and
  • Increase the number of patients receiving MAT services.

Why do MAT Chat?

Following recent MAT trainings, providers and other participants requested:

  • A forum to ask questions of their peers who are providing MAT services;
  • A webinar/phone meeting for convenient access;
  • An early or late meeting time, as it is very hard to pull away during clinic hours; and
  • Consistent monthly meetings.


MAT Chat is open to Montana waivered providers and other MAT team members as appropriate.


MAT Chat is the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7AM via Zoom.

The next MAT Chat is October 9 at 7AM.
