Opioid STR and SOR, in partnership with the Missouri Coalition for Community Behavioral Healthcare are providing an 8-hour MAT Waiver Course. This course is different from the traditional 8-hour live course, as the first 4-hours will be in person and then the last 4-hours will be individual online work. AAAP is the Data Sponsor for this training.

Once you complete the first 4-hour live training, you will receive an email from AAAP with a link for the other 4-hours of individual work. Once that work is completed, they will send you a certificate of completion. 

Upon completing the required courses (MD-8 hours, NP and PA-24 hours) participants will need to submit a Notice of Intent form (NOI) along with their certificate(s) of completion, provided after completing the training, which verifies that they have completed the required coursework. A link to the NOI form application will be given following the training. PCSS-MAT has a comprehensive library of materials with continuing education are available at no cost for healthcare providers to build confidence in preventing substance use disorders and treating SUDs and opioid use disorders (OUD). PCSS-MAT also has a no-cost clinical coaching/mentoring program to provide one-on-one clinical expertise for primary care providers. You can post a question to a listserv with an addiction specialist and be matched with an addiction specialist.

Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 1U79TI026556-02 from SAMHSA and Opioid STR.
