About the Waiver Training

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.

The course is split into an online portion and an in‐person portion. Attendees are expected to complete the online portion of the course before attending the in‐person training. Attendees will be sent a link to the online portion after registering for the course.
