Free Medication-Assisted Training Opportunities Available

As we face an opioid addiction epidemic, consider how you can play a role in reversing this crisis. Free training opportunities are available through grant-funded programs. 
New Jersey has received a grant from the New Jersey Department of Human Services which aims to address the growing need for access to DATA 2000 waiver certified prescribers. Certified prescribers manage opioid use disorder (OUD) with buprenorphine-based medication-assisted treatments. Rutgers NJ Medical School, Department of Psychiatry and Cooper Addiction Medicine with Rowan University are hosting these trainings.
