Satisfy the new, one-time eight-hour training requirement issued by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to meet the conditions of the MATE Act for all registered practitioners on treating and managing patients with opioid or other substance use disorders. CME activities listed on this page can be taken in any combination to fulfill the eight-hour requirement. One CME credit equals to a one hour of required training; you’ll need eight CME credits to fulfill the eight-hour requirement.
On December 29, 2022, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 enacted a new one-time requirement which went into effect on June 27, 2023, for any Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)-registered practitioner (except for veterinarians) to complete eight hours of training “on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders.” CME activities listed on this page can be taken in any combination to fulfill the eight-hour requirement. Free activities are listed as such.
Many U.S. states already require physicians and other medical professionals to complete CME hours on safer prescribing of opioids. This new requirement asks physicians to have additional education on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders.
If you have not met this specific eight-hour training requirement yet, the deadline to do so is the date of a practitioner’s next scheduled DEA registration submission.
The AMA Ed Hub offers a variety of educational activities to help physicians and other practitioners complete their eight hours of training. It’s important to note that the education requirement refers to substance use disorders, not exclusively opioid use disorder, and the training does not have to occur in one session.
