How do I train to become waivered to prescribe buprenorphine?

Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who can prescribe narcotics, according to the DATA 2000 and CARA 2016 laws, can become waivered to prescribe buprenorphine. Providers must complete a training, 8 hours for physicians and 24 hours for NPs and PAs. Clinical Tools, Inc., the company that produced SBIRTTraining.com, offers waiver training through the website Buppractice.com. Although some of that training for NPs and PAs takes place on SBIRTTraining.com, you must register for the training through the Buppractice.com website and enter the training from that website.
