Providers’ Clinical Support System

For Opioid Therapies

What We Do

PCSS-O is a national training and mentoring project developed in response to the prescription opioid overdose epidemic. The consortium of major stakeholders and constituency groups with interests in safe and effective use of opioid medications offers extensive experience in the treatment of substance use disorders and specifically, opioid use disorder treatment, as well as the interface of pain and opioid use disorder. PCSS-O makes available at no cost CME programs on the safe and effective use of opioids for treatment of chronic pain and safe and effective treatment of opioid use disorder.

Core Curriculum

PCSS-O clinical experts have created a comprehensive course on opioid prescribing for primary care providers in the essential evidence-based clinical practices in treating chronic pain—with or without medications.
