DEA DATA 2000 Waiver Training Available in Cleveland Nov. 7-8

As part of the 21st Century CURES grant, the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) will provide DEA Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) Waiver trainings in several locations throughout the state. The first of 47 in-person training sessions will take place in Cincinnati from Oct. 13-14.

The session in Cleveland will be held Nov. 7-8 at the MetroHealth Medical Center. You can register for this session and learn more about it by clicking here.  

Trainers from The American Society of Addiction Medicine will provide the first day of training. Physicians who complete the course requirements, obtain their certificate of completion and supply the registration site with their DEA-X number will be reimbursed $1,300.

This training program expands the clinical context of medication-assisted opioid dependency treatment. Qualified physicians are permitted to dispense or prescribe specifically approved Schedule III, IV, and V narcotic medications (medications that have a lower risk for abuse, like buprenorphine) in settings other than an opioid treatment program (OTP) such as a methadone clinic. OTPs provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for people diagnosed with an opioid use disorder. Learn more about OTPs here. You can read more about buprenorphine waiver management here.

Funding for this conference was made possible by the 21st Century CURES grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
