MAT Standards Website



The new website is Scotland’s national resource for information on medication assisted treatment, the MAT Standards and their implementation.    New standards for services providing medication assisted treatment (MAT) came into force in April 2022 and are being implemented across the country.  The implementation of the new standards will transform the treatment and care of people who have a drug problem across Scotland.

This website has been created for all:

  • People affected by a drug problem, people in treatment, their families, friends and advocates

  • People who provide services for people who are affected by a drug problem including treatment and support and mainstream services

  • People who plan, commission and evaluate services

  • People working to develop better practice and policy to prevent and reduce problem drug use.
