Overview of Legislation

Physicians

The Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) specifies training is necessary for physicians to obtain a waiver to engage in office‐based treatment of opioid use disorders using drugs approved by the FDA on Schedules III, IV, and V. This course addresses those requirements using a curriculum approved by CSAT/SAMHSA and ASAM, who is one of the national organizations named in the DATA 2000 legislation as eligible to prepare and administer these courses.

Nurse Practitioners & Physician Assistants

On July 22, 2016, President Obama signed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) into law. CARA authorizes qualified NPs and PAs to become waivered to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based settings for patients with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) for a five-year period expiring in October 2021.    

To qualify, NPs and PAs must: 

  • Be licensed under state law to prescribe schedule III, IV, or V medications for pain  
  • Complete not less than 24 hours of appropriate education through a qualified provider
  • Through other training or experience, demonstrate the ability to treat and manage OUD  
  • If required by state law, supervision or working in collaboration with a qualifying physician to prescribe medications for the treatment of OUD may be required.

    HHS' announcement on November 16, 2016, enables NPs and PAs to immediately begin taking the 24 hours of required training. For the full HHS announcement, click here.

    NPs and PAs can begin the training immediately by taking the 8-hour buprenorphine course ASAM currently offers or that other stakeholders offer (see below for more information). The remaining 16 hours will have to be completed with one training provider. ASAM is developing multiple 16-hour training course options and formats, including collaborations with:




    If required by state law, supervision or working in collaboration with a qualifying physician to prescribe medications for the treatment of OUD may be required.

The ASAM Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder Course has been made available in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Indivior Inc.


Please ensure that your state regulations allow you to prescribe buprenorphine and other medications to treat OUD before you apply for the waiver.  Some states may have overriding state legislation that will prevent NPs and PAs from prescribing these medications even if Federal law allows it.

Apply

SAMHSA reviews waiver applications within 45 business days of receipt. If approved, you will receive a letter via email that confirms your waiver and includes your prescribing identification number.

Waiver applications are forwarded to the DEA. DEA regulations require your prescribing identification number to be included on all buprenorphine prescriptions for opioid dependency treatment, along with your regular DEA number.

If you have not received confirmation of receipt of your application, or if it has been more than 45 business days since submitting it, contact CSAT by email: infobuprenorphine@samhsa.hhs.gov or call 866.287.2728.
