Providers’ Clinical Support System for Opioid Therapies (PCSS-O)
The Providers’ Clinical Support System for Opioid Therapies (PCSS-O) is a national training and mentoring project developing in response to the prescription opioid overdose epidemic.
PCSS clinical experts have developed a comprehensive core curriculum for primary care providers in treating chronic pain and addressing concerns about opioid use disorder. Participants will receive a certificate of completion following each completed module and a final certificate when all modules have been completed. Each module is a one hour activity (except the Overview module) and is designated for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.

Opioid Response Network (ORN)
In response to the nation’s opioid crisis, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) awarded a two-year grant and created the Opioid Response Network (ORN) to enhance opioid-related efforts already underway throughout the United States and territories. ORN, led by the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) with a coalition of 27 national professional organizations, provides training and technical assistance via local consultants across the country. The initiative focuses on applying evidence-based practices in prevention, treatment and recovery to meet locally identified needs.
Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 6H79TI080816 from SAMHSA.
