Course Overview 


Welcome to The ASAM Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder Course. This course provides 8 hours of online education needed for physicians to receive a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in an office-based setting. Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants will need to complete an additional 16 hours (which can be accessed through the ASAM Fundamentals 40-Hour Program) in order to meet the requirements to apply for and obtain their waiver. More information on waiver requirements can be found on the SAMHSA website. Participants who choose to complete a live or blended course instead of the online version, or who have already completed an 8-hour waiver-qualifying treatment through ASAM or another group, may submit that CME certificate to fulfill this activity of the 40-Hour Program.
