DATA 2000 is the Drug Abuse Treatment Act passed by Congress in 2000. DATA 2000 allows specially trained physicians to treat opiate dependent patients in an outpatient setting. Treatment is typically provided in privacy of your doctor’s office. Office Base Outpatient Treatment (OBOT) is a model that has assisted over 1 million opiate dependent individuals since 2000. Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the primary focus of DATA 2000. Several medications, including Suboxone, when combined with counseling have proven to be very effective in the treatment of opioid dependence.
