Prescribing Guidelines

The MATTERS team is excited to see regulatory changes taking place to increase medication access for those patients with opioid use disorder.  A DEA-registered practitioner working in a hospital, clinic, or emergency room, or any DEA-registered hospital/clinic that allows practitioners to operate under their registration number as per 21 CFR 1301.22(c), may request an exception to the one-day supply limitation currently imposed pursuant to 21 CFR 1306.07(b). Consistent with Pub. L. 116-215, DEA will grant such requests to allow a practitioner to dispense up to a three-day supply of the medication under the circumstances described in subsection 1306.07(b).

Requests for exception must be emailed to: ODLP@dea.gov. Please add the following to the subject line: Request for Exception to Limitations on Dispensing for OUD.
