Clinicians working to address the opioid epidemic may be eligible for free training to provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT). 

The National Health Service Corps is partnering with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to increase the number of Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) Waiver-certified clinicians in high-need communities.

SAMHSA’s Provider Clinical Support System (PCSS)  offers the most effective, evidence-based clinical practices in preventing, identifying, and treating opioid-use disorder (OUD).
