New Training Requirements for All DEA Registered Practitioners

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has enacted a new training requirement for all DEA registered practitioners “on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders.” The requirement goes into effect on June 27, 2023, and will be a one-time eight-hour requirement.
