Adolescence is when many addictions begin. Yet most patients can’t get the care they need.
The AAP recommends that pediatricians consider offering medication-assisted treatment to their adolescent and young adult patients with severe opioid use disorders; buprenorphine is a first-line medication.
You can help your patients in danger from an opioid use disorder. Take this readily-available, free opportunity to obtain training (4 hours in Hilton Head, 4 hours online) that allows you to prescribe buprenorphine.
The training is provided by Stephen Martin, MD EdM, a family physician board certified in addiction medicine, who has provided this training in Alaska, Alabama, and Maine. He is also a former 8th grade teacher and pledges the 4 hours will be well spent!
Buprenorphine waiver training is available for providers interested in seeking their waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in office‐based treatment of opioid use disorders. To obtain the waiver to prescribe, physicians are required to take eight hours of training and NPs/PAs are required to take 24 hours of training.
Following trainings, providers who have successfully completed the course, may apply to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to obtain the waiver. PCSS‐MAT urges all providers who complete the course to submit a Notice of Intent Form to SAMHSA to obtain your waiver to prescribe. The waiver must be completed online and a link to the online form will be provided to participants following the training.
