Championing Treatment for Substance Use Disorder in Primary Care: A Q&A with New Jersey Providers

This interview features two physicians who participated in planning New Jersey’s statewide office-based addiction treatment program (OBAT) program and their experiences treating addiction within primary and specialty care settings.

It provides insight into the benefits and challenges associated with providing medication-assisted treatment (MAT), particularly in primary care, and explores how states like New Jersey are supporting providers in doing so.

The interviewees include Lynda Bascelli, MD, the chief medical officer at Project H.O.P.E., a patient centered medical home offering integrated care for people experiencing homelessness in Camden, New Jersey, and Kaitlan Baston, MD, MSc, is the medical director of addiction medicine at the Urban Health Institute at Cooper University Health Care.
