Expanding Access to Buprenorphine
Providing life-saving care just got easier.
Effective December 29, 2022, the DATA 2000 waiver is no longer required to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. Only a DEA number is needed. The DACS team of addiction medicine experts are here to support prescribers and pharmacists.
Provide life saving care.
All prescribers who have a current DEA registration that includes Schedule III authority, may now prescribe buprenorphine for opioid use disorder.
