uMAT-R Research Study

Hello! Thank you for your interest in our current studies!

 This study is for adults with current misuse or a lifetime misuse of opioids, stimulants, or hallucinogens.

uMAT-R is a free, supportive app for individuals in any stage of recovery. The information in the app is based on the SAMHSA Federal Guidelines for Substance Use Treatment Programs. Features include messaging with a personal health coach, daily motivational messages, appointment reminders, supportive information, and more. Clients can help us improve the app by using it and filling out research surveys. Clients who use uMAT-R will receive Walmart Giftcards as compensation for their help.
