Providers’ Clinical Support System

For Medication Assisted Treatment
What We Do

We are a national training and mentoring project developed in response to the prescription opioid misuse epidemic and the availability of pharmacotherapies to address opioid use disorder.  The overarching goal of PCSS-MAT is to make available the most effective medication-assisted treatments to serve patients in a variety of settings, including primary care, psychiatric care, substance use disorder treatment, and pain management settings.

NP and PA Information on MAT Waiver Training

If you are a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant interested in completing the required 24 hours of training for your MAT waiver training, you may take the 8-hour waiver training immediately. NOTE: The remaining 16 hours of training have been developed and are under review for CE accreditation. We anticipate these courses to be available in early 2017.

Please sign up here for email updates from SAMHSA regarding upcoming training materials for NPs and PAs.
