Buprenorphine Waiver Training

In October 2018, CWR received a three-year federal grant to increase the number of medication assisted treatment (MAT) physicians in Oklahoma. MAT is an evidence-based, highly effective treatment that combines medication with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a whole-patient approach to addiction treatment. Under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000, physicians are required to complete specialized training to qualify for a federal waiver to dispense or prescribe approved medication intended for addiction treatment.

This program allows CWR to provide MAT training to all OSU second-year resident physicians, as well as practicing physicians, with the goal of substantially increasing the number of MAT-trained physicians in Oklahoma. Continuing medical education (CME) is available and the trainings are free. 

Training dates for Fall 2019 below. For more information, contact cwr-mat@okstate.edu.
