Who is this site for?

This site was developed to train both providers who qualify to prescribe buprenorphine and other clinicians who treat opioid-dependent patients with buprenorphine or manage and refer patients with opioid use disorder. Initially, only MDs and DOs could become waivered to prescribe buprenorphine and have training, however, the CARA 2016 law provides that nurse practitioners and physician assistants are able to prescribe it as well. They are required to take 24 hours of training instead of the 8 hours required for physicians.
