Complete Your MATE Act Training With Overdose Lifeline’s Online Courses

According to The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023, also referred to as the Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act, all new or renewing DEA-registered (Drug Enforcement Administration) physicians and practitioners are required to complete 8 hours of addiction continuing education. Luckily, you can satisfy these credits through multiple courses or activities. Overdose Lifeline (ODL) has on-demand, online courses that meet the MATE Act training content requirements.

Overdose Lifeline is a Trusted Source of Education 

ODL is recognized in all 50 states as a provider of evidence-informed quality substance use disorder (SUD) education. Trusted by clinicians, professionals, and organizations alike, our partners like the Federal Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Navy, NIH National Institute of Drug Abuse, health departments, schools, colleges, universities, and over 25,000 clinicians and medical professionals utilize our addiction education programs.

SUD Courses Overdose Lifeline Offers

ODL has courses accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The Purdue University Continuing Nursing Education facilitates all ANCC courses. ODL and the Purdue University College of Pharmacy jointly coordinate all ACCME courses.

Some course examples include The Brain and the Disease of Addiction, Guide to Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Recovery, and Removing the Shame and Stigma of Substance Use Disorder / Addiction.

These robust courses are available online 24/7, so you can progress through each module at your own pace. Once purchased through ODL, the courses are available in your online account for six months. You can access all courses through your computer, tablet, or smartphone device.

What is Required to Earn CE Credits for a SUD Course?

In order to satisfy the requirement, all addiction continuing education courses must be 100% complete with a minimum of an 80% final grade on the final exam. Users are allowed multiple attempts on the final exam. Once completed, you will receive your course Certificate to either download or share online. While other CE course platforms often have a waiting period before the Certificate is accessible, ODL grants immediate access upon completion. 

The Path to Recovery and Care is Paved With Addiction Education

SUDs are a rampant health concern across the nation. According to data from the National Center for Health Statistics, over 20 million people in the U.S. meet the criteria for SUD and there are approximately 23 million in recovery. These courses help medical professionals build upon a foundational knowledge of SUD recovery, the opioid crisis, and ways to help people dealing with addiction.
