Oops…I Goofed

One of my astute readers point out an error in my previous post.

Practitioners are no longer required to get eight hours of training if they only want to treat thirty or fewer patients. These prescribers can still prescribe buprenorphine products for their patients with opioid use disorder, but they still to submit Notice of Intent to SAMHSA under established protocols. Then once SAMHSA approves the practitioner’s request, the DEA is notified, and the practitioner is issued an X DEA number to be used for those patients’ buprenorphine prescriptions.
