Provider’s Clinical Support System–Universities (PCSS-Universities)

The purpose of this program is to expand/enhance access to medications for substance use disorder (SUD) services for persons with a SUD seeking or receiving treatment through ensuring the education and training of students in the medical, physician assistant, and nurse practitioner fields.

SAMHSA funds the Providers’ Clinical Support System (PCSS) to provide practitioner training in the evidence-based prevention and treatment of SUD and the trainings needed to apply for DEA registrations to prescribe Schedule II-V medications as directed in Section 1263 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 otherwise known as the Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act.
