Healthcare providers must complete training before applying for the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorders. The first 4 hours of this live on-line webinar training will be instructed by Leslie Marino, MD, MPH, a certified specialist in substance abuse disorders. After the live training, you will receive an email from AAAP with a link to the remaining 4 hours of online self-study training. Please note it can take several days for participants to receive this link. Once that work is completed, AAAP will send you a certificate of completion. Eligible providers can then apply for the DATA 2000 Waiver to prescribe and dispense opiod dependency medications.

CME Credit is NOW available!
