About the Training

The one-and-a-half-day training throughout the state of Ohio includes the traditional ASAM 8-Hour waiver qualifying course covers all medications and treatments for opioid use disorder, and provides the required education needed to obtain the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. The additional half-day session covers implementation with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

About the Grant

ASAM is partnering with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services to provide the required education needed to increase the number of physicians with a DATA 2000 waiver in Ohio.

Option 1: Free One-and-A-Half-Day Live Trainings

Prescribers may take a free 1.5-day course to obtain the DEA DATA 2000 Waiver. ASAM will host the first day of training that provides the 8-hours course to meet federal requirements in communities across the state. This material will be followed by a half-day of training from experts around Ohio that will enhance the prescriber’s knowledge about opioid prescribing and buprenorphine policies (e.g., low-dose prescribing according to federal and state guidelines and DEA guidance on documentation).

Option 2: Free Online Training Courses

Physicians that do not have time for the live course may take an online module at their own pace. ASAM is offering the full 8-hour training to meet federal requirements for the DATA 2000 Waiver. 

Reimbursement for Live Trainings

ASAM will provide reimbursement payments to physicians who attend entire the one-and-a-half-day training event once ASAM receives confirmation of attendance and once the physician submits the copy of their DEA X-Number for the DEA DATA 2000 waiver.
