The passage of the MAT Act (2023) removed the X-Waiver requirement for buprenorphine prescribing and included a new requirement that all registered prescribers complete training. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has released updated training requirements for practitioners treating individuals with substance use disorders. Anyone renewing their DEA after 6/27/2023 will need to attest to having completed 8 hours of substance use disorder education.
All physicians, advance practice providers, and prescribers registering with the DEA (or renewing registration) must complete this training. Veterinarians do not need to complete this training.
