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 all OSU second-year physician residents MAT training and to offer continuing medical education MAT training to practicing physicians. Providing MAT training to resident physicians and practicing physicians will substantially increase the number of MAT-trained physicians in Oklahoma. These trainings are free.
