Substance Use Disorders 101: The Overview is a 30-minute version of Grayken Center for Addiction TTA’s Addiction 101 training. This training provides an overview of the disease model of addiction, the overdose epidemic, stigma, and evidence-based treatments for persons with substance use disorder.
This training satisfies 0.50 hours of the required 8 hours of training for DEA-registered practitioners. The Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act was included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023. The MATE Act requires increased training for Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)-registered physicians and practitioners—specifically, a one-time eight-hour training requirement on treating and managing patients with opioid or other substance use disorders.
This training aims to reach a broad audience of interdisciplinary healthcare teams as well as other professionals and members of the community seeking to learn about substance use disorders.
