Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) of Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) involves a combination of medications that target the brain and psychosocial interventions aimed at improving treatment outcomes. Research shows that medications and therapy together may be more successful that either treatment method alone. The National Health Service Corps is partnering with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to increase the number of DATA 2000 Waiver-certified clinicians in high-need communities. If you are a physician (MD or DO), nurse practitioner (NP), certified nurse midwife (CNM), or physician assistant (PA) and have an active Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) number to dispense controlled substances, you are eligible for free, discipline-specific MAT Waiver Training. Both in-person and online courses are available.
