How to obtain your waiver to prescribe buprenorphine

As of 2021, MD/DOs, PAs, and NPs are no longer required to take an 8 hour waiver training.  Those who desire to prescribe buprenorphine for up to 30 patients are still required to obtain a buprenorphine waiver through the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
