The ASAM Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder Course is designed for:
Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and health care team members working with patients with opioid use disorder.
Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who wish to obtain a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for office-based treatment of opioid use disorders.

Offer treatments for patients with opioid use disorder.
Identify and assess patients who are appropriate for treatment with medications.     
Discuss the psychiatric and medical comorbidities associated with opioid addiction.
Apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to patients with opioid use disorders.
