AMA and VMS Partner on Joint Letter Supporting Medication-Assisted-Treatment Expansion

Last week, the Senate Institutions Committee received a joint letter of support from the American Medical Association and the Vermont Medical Society for S.166, a bill that would expand medication-assisted-treatment(MAT) for Vermont inmates. Both of our organizations strongly support the aim of this legislation to provide the continuation of care for inmates by helping to ensure a person currently receiving MAT remains on MAT or that a person who has an opioid use disorder can begin treatment with MAT. Critically, this bill demonstrates Vermont’s unequivocal support to enhance treatment of those with an opioid use disorder, a position that highlights Vermont’s national leadership on this issue. The Committee is scheduled to vote on this bill this week.
