Suboxone Clinic For Doctors : What is the DEA Information You Need to Know ?Suboxone Clinic and The DEA
The Physicians clinical support network has free webinars for physicians to help run a suboxone clinic . The webinars are archived on the American Psychiatric Association web site and can be viewed by anyone. The last webinar I watched discussd the DEA requirements for suboxone physicians. It was well presented and took around 45 minutes to view. Slides can be downloaded for viewing.
Running a suboxone clinic entails some requirements that need to be followed by physicians. These include adequate records. The webinar covers the specifics of this record keeping so a DEA audit will go smoothly. The speaker covers the approximate risk of an audit and how best to be prepared. There is a question and answer session after the initial talk.
I thought the webinar was done well and did not contain much “fluf.” All the information was relevant. If you are a physician who prescribes suboxone, it would be well worth your time to review this information. If you are a patient and want to know the requirements for physicians prescribing suboxone; this will give you more information.
