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, are required to 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.

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

Effective October 2023, registration for the CAPA Controlled Substance Education Course will include the DEA 2023 MATE Act Training Courses package.
