8-hour Buprenorphine Waiver Training

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) of Substance Use Disorders involves a combination of a medication that targets the brain, and psychosocial interventions aimed at improving treatment outcomes. Research shows that medications and therapy together may be more successful than either treatment method alone. PCSS-MAT intends to provide free, evidence-based resources to train clinicians and the public about the effectiveness of medications used for treating opioid addiction, including buprenorphine, naltrexone and methadone, to more effectively address this public health crisis. 

Monday's Session: Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 1H79TI081968 from SAMHSA.
