DEA Expands Access to Mobile Narcotic Treatment Programs
This rule change, which took effect on July 28, 2021, will have a significant impact on the nation’s 1,700 DEA-registered and future methadone service providers. DEA will no longer require providers to obtain a separate registration in order to operate a mobile component and distribute controlled substances. Removing the dual-registration requirement will make it easier to supply treatment services to rural and underserved areas. Additional information is provided in this article.
