MAT and MATE Acts: 

This training counts toward the 8-hour SUD training requirement to renew or get your DEA license. 

On December 29, 2022, President Biden signed the fiscal year 2023 omnibus, passing the Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment (MAT) and Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Acts. These bills were passed to expand access to buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorder, and normalize and enhance substance use care across healthcare settings.

MACS is monitoring guidance from state and federal agencies closely and will update this page when more information becomes available. The resources on this page offer information about the omnibus, the bills, and the implications for healthcare providers and programs.
