DEA Issues New Training Requirement for Substance Use Disorders

April 6, 2023 // Southern Medical Association

In December 2022, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 enacted a new one-time training requirement on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders for all practitioners who are registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Practitioners are now required to complete 8 hours of training for Medication Assisted Treatment as part of the MATE Act. This new training requirement goes into effect June 21, 2023, and the deadline for completion is the date of a practitioner’s next scheduled DEA registration submission.

Complete training requirements, as well as additional information, can be found on the U.S. Department of Justice · Drug Enforcement Administration Diversion Control Division website.
