New DEA Training

Facing an overdose epidemic, and knowing overdose deaths are preventable, Congress passed a bill to set a new standard in healthcare to address addiction from every setting. Starting with DEA registrations on June 27, 2023, all DEA-registered clinicians, other than veterinarians, must complete 8 total hours of training in Addiction Medicine. Learn more about what the new requirement means for PAs here.

CME training courses through CAPA that count towards a DEA registrant’s 8-hour training requirement include the Controlled Substance Education Course* (6 hours of CME) and now the DEA 2023 MATE Act Training Course package that offers an additional 2 hours in substance use disorder training.

This 2-hour training is led by Arianna Campbell, PA-C and John Luftig, PA-C, and offers pragmatic ways to address addiction in any practice setting from PAs who are leaders in the field.

*Effective October 2023, registration to the Controlled Substance Education Course will include access to the additional 2-hour substance use disorder training available on-demand for a total of 8 possible CME credits. Learn more.
