Do you hold a DEA X-waiver to prescribe buprenorphine?

Do you hold a DEA X-waiver to prescribe buprenorphine? If the answer is ‘yes’, we’d like to hear from you.  Please take our 8-minute survey.

As part of our response to the opioid epidemic that is devastating Maine communities, the Maine Medical Association is part of a collaborative effort to expand the availability of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)* for people with opioid use disorder.  

We’ve all heard the frustration in our communities that there is a shortage of treatment that is local, affordable, and immediate.  In order to share accurate information with patients and stakeholders, as well as fill gaps in regional treatment capacity, we are assisting in the development of a community resource map that accurately reflects MAT prescriber and addiction counselor capacity in every Maine county.

The information we collect will be compiled and stored here at the Maine Medical Association, and it will be available in database and mapping formats to inform community planning and response efforts.  

If you hold a DEA X-waiver, please help us put a sharper focus on available resources for MAT. Your input is very important to us and to the thousands of Maine people with opioid use disorder and their families.  This survey will take less than 10 minutes.  It is designed for current MAT prescribers and addiction counselors, as well as for anyone who holds the licensure but has not yet joined a collaborative MAT effort in their community.  

Thank you for helping us collect and confirm this important information.
