Buprenorphine waiver training is available for physicians, physician assistants and advanced practice nurses interested in seeking their waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in the treatment of opioid use disorders. To obtain the waiver to prescribe, providers are required to take eight (8) hours of training.
Following training, providers who have successfully completed the course may apply to SAMHSA to obtain the waiver. PCSS-MAT urges all physicians who complete the course to submit a Notice of Intent Form to SAMHSA to obtain their waiver to prescribe. The waiver must be completed online and a link to the online form will be provided to participants following the training.
