What if I come late?
Training attendees will be admitted up to thirty (30) minutes after the program has started. After thirty minutes, they will not be able to use the training to obtain their DEA DATA waiver.
What does the training cost?
Training events are free. Additionally, lunch and refreshments will be provided the first day.
What do I need to bring to the training?
You will be provided a link to course materials after the registration process is complete. You may bring these materials with you – or – you may bring a laptop to access these materials during the class.
What is the reimbursement schedule?
Prescribers who attend the full 1.5-day training event and receive their DATA 2000 Waiver may qualify for reimbursement:
Physician Assistants: $750
Certified Nurse Practitioners: $750
Physician Residents: $1,300
What support will be provided after the training?
OhioMHAS will provide further education about drug dependence and the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria, give prescribers access to DATA 2000 mentorship programs, and develop other online continuing education programs that prescribers can access at any time. Please see the Workforce Development Guide for more information.
How can I host a training?
You may volunteer to donate space for an MAT training in your community. Please note that we are only contracted to provide 47 trainings during the first year of the grant, so your community may have to wait to be scheduled until Summer. Interested communities should email our team with your request.
Who do I contact with questions?
