Half & Half MAT Waiver Training
Time & Location
About the Event
The PCSS Half-and-Half Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) waiver training course provides an overview of the FDA-approved medication buprenorphine prescribed for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD). The course meets the required 8-hour training to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of OUD. The course trainer will conduct an overview of prevention, identification, and treatment of substance use disorders emphasizing OUD.
The buprenorphine waiver 8-hour training is offered in a ‘half- and-half’ format - 4 hours of in-person training followed up by 4 hours of online training through PCSS-MAT. Upon completion of the required training, providers will meet the requirement of the DATA 2000 to apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid-dependent patients.
