ACOI Education Fulfills DEA Requirements


June 14, 2023

To meet the conditions of the Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has issued new requirements.

As of June 27, 2023, all DEA registered practitioners must complete a one-time training requirement on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders. The deadline for completion is the date of your next scheduled DEA registration submission. To fulfill the requirement, eight hours of training must be completed. This one-time requirement will not be part of any future renewals. Practitioners will check a box on their online registration form to affirm that they have completed the new training completion. No further documentation is needed. Learn more about this requirement from ACOI's President.
