Providers’ Clinical Support System for Opioid Therapies (PCSS-O) is a three year grant funded by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT).

It is a collaborative project led by American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry with: American Dental Association, American Medical Association, American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine, American Psychiatric Association, American Society for Pain Management Nursing, and International Nurses Society on Addictions.


In their practices, prescribers may encounter patients who are addicted to opioids. Health professionals in general practice may not have sufficient clinical training or experience to properly treat opioid addiction. 

PCSS-MAT is a project that provides training, mentoring, and ongoing educational activities for those offering office-based treatment of opioid dependence. More information is available on PCSS-MAT website.

PCSS-O Listserv is a resource that provides an “Expert of the Month” who will answer questions related to a recently presented PCSS-O webinar or PCSS-O online module topic area.
