This is your chance to complete the updated Emergency Medicine focused MAT training required to apply to the Drug Enforcement Agency for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. This is one of three medications, (buprenorphine, naltrexone and methadone), approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid use disorder. Research demonstrates that MAT is effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders and can help some people to sustain recovery.
