New Training Requirements for DEA License Renewal


DEA License Renewal Training

The new Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act requires most licensed prescribers who are either renewing or applying for a new controlled substance DEA license to have completed at least 8 hours of opioid or other substance use disorders (SUD) training. The MATE act went into effect on June 27, 2023.

Additionally, prescriptions for buprenorphine now only require a standard DEA registration number. The x-waiver is no longer required for any prescriber to treat patients with buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. Learn more about this change.
