MATE ACT – Substance Use Disorder Accredited Education

Mate Act – Substance Use Disorder Accredited Education


The recently enacted Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act, requires that Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)-registered health care providers (except those in exclusive veterinary practice) complete training on the treatment and management of opioid or other substance use disorders. This mandated eight (8) hours of education is a one-time requirement and can be fulfilled using one or more continuing education (CE) activities related to opioid and other substance use. Evidence of completed education will be requested after June 27, 2023 whenever a provider applies for a new or renewed DEA registration to be a licensed prescriber of controlled substances.

    Target Audience

    All Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)-registered practitioners* who treat patients with opioid or other substance use disorders, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and dentists.
