- A buprenorphine prescribing guide, which includes information on the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 waiver process and patient limits
- Clinical support tools, such as treatment guidelines, ICD-10 coding, and recommendations for working with special populations
- Access to critical helplines and SAMHSA’s treatment locators.
