Funding Available For One PCSS Grant for Treatment of Substance Use Disorders
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is soliciting applications for FY 2007 funds for the Physician Clinical Support System (PCSS) for the Treatment of Substance Use Disorders cooperative agreement. This program will enhance and further develop the current SAMHSA funded Physician Clinical Support System designed to assist physicians in treating patients dependent on heroin or prescription opioid drugs with FDA approved products containing buprenorphine.
It is expected that approximately $550,000 per year will be available to fund this award for up to three years.
WHO CAN APPLY: Eligible applicants are limited to the national professional medical organizations authorized by the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA) to carry out the training of physicians desiring to prescribe and/or dispense FDA approved buprenorphine products for the treatment of addictive disorders. These are the American Society of Addiction Medicine, the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, the American Medical Association, the American Osteopathic Association, and the American Psychiatric Association. Any of these entities may apply individually; they may also apply as a consortium comprised of all or several of the eligible organizations.

If a consortium submits an application, the application must include a written agreement outlining the roles and responsibilities of each participating national professional medical organization. This agreement must be signed by an authorized official of each member of the consortium and attached to the application.
