A Stigma-Free Pharmacy Solution To Help Your Patients Reclaim Their Lives!

Cordant Pharmacy Solutions™ is a managed medication-assisted treatment (MAT) pharmacy program that focuses on supporting clinicians who treat patients for opioid use disorder using buprenorphine or other addiction treatment medications, like Vivitrol® and Sublocade®.

The program works by delivering buprenorphine dispensed by Cordant’s pharmacy to the patient during the time of their treatment visit, or for telemedicine programs, to the patient’s home. For patients receiving long-acting injectable therapies, Cordant delivers Vivitrol and Sublocade to the clinic for administration during their scheduled visit.

Cordant’s stigma-free managed MAT pharmacy program in conjunction with your treatment protocol can help improve patient adherence to their treatment plan.

Stigma-Free Program

Cordant’s program ensures your patients have access to medication used for the treatment of opioid use disorder as needed in a nonjudgmental setting.

Vivitrol and Sublocade

Cordant also offers Vivitrol®, an extended-release once-a-month injection, for providers to administer in their clinic. Sublocade® is also available for providers in select states.

On-site Service in Your Clinic

Cordant can deliver medications to your patients in coordination with their appointments. Medications are supervised by Cordant staff and are never stored in your practice overnight. An on-site Cordant team member may also be able to collect drug testing specimens as ordered by the clinician.

Increased Visibility and Insight

Integrated lab and pharmacy data reports increase visibility and insight for prompt intervention, leading to improved patient compliance and adherence to treatment programs.

Better Patient Outcomes

Twice as many patients stayed active in treatment when using Cordant's program compared with others.

PDMP Review for Every Prescription

Cordant pharmacists check prescriptions against the state’s prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) data and alert clinicians to potential risks.

A peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment demonstrated that patients using Cordant’s managed medication-assisted treatment (MAT) pharmacy program:

  • 52% increase in the rate of patients remaining in treatment
  • 46% fewer opiate-positive lab tests
  • 41% fewer drug-related emergency department visits.
  • 100% of the patient respondents reported they would recommend Cordant’s pharmacy program.

Cordant’s on-site managed MAT pharmacy program eliminates many of the barriers to treatment that patients face including stigma, challenges with transportation and limited or no availability of medication when needed, and can help improve patient adherence to their treatment plan.

In a recent survey, 93% of patients said that they are more likely to adhere to their treatment plans and attend their appointments when they receive medication at their doctor’s office through Cordant’s program, and 98% said they feel that Cordant’s pharmacy coordinators treat them with respect and care about their well-being.

What Patients Are Saying

Cordant earned a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 85 in a recent survey of patients in Cordant's stigma-free in-office managed pharmacy program and 88% said they would highly recommend Cordant.

NPS is a measure of customer satisfaction and loyalty, with scores over 50 considered “best in class.” Cordant’s score was higher than many popular brands such as Southwest (71), Costco (76), and USAA (72).
