AAAP’s “Half and Half” Course
with Dr. Richard Fein (8am-12:30pm)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AAAP’s “Half and Half” course with Dr. Richard Fein is a free American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry program that combines 4.25 hours of face-to-face/in-class instruction and 3.75 hours of online training. Those wishing to qualify for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine (Suboxone, Subutex) must complete both components of this program.


Training will focus on clinical vignettes to help participants think through “real life” experiences in opioid dependence treatment. The online modules provide a background on the treatment of opioid dependence and substance use disorders. This program has been approved for a maximum of 8 AMA PRA Category 1 CMEs. Note that NPs/PAs can take this 8 hour waiver training and it will count towards their waiver application.
