DEA MATE Resources
MEETING FEDERAL CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE TRAINING REQUIREMENTS
The US Drug Enforcement Agency and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration issued clarifying guidance in early 2023 about the new one-time, 8-hour training requirement, also known as the MATE Act, for providers who prescribe controlled substances.
The training requirement takes effect June 27, 2023, but physicians have until their DEA license renewal date to complete any additional training. AAFP has a comprehensive resource available to answer members’ questions and multiple CME offerings on substance use disorders.
TNAFP has researched and compiled a list of additional resources to help members meet the new requirement.
TNAFP staff is available to assist members with any CME-related needs. Contact Karen Baird at 615.370.5144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
