DEA Expands Access to Mobile Narcotic Treatment Programs (NTPs)

On June 28, 2021, the DEA published a final rule lifting the 14-year moratorium on adding mobile NTPs (methadone-dispensing vans). The rule waives the requirement for NTPs to obtain separate registrations for fixed-site and mobile distribution of controlled substances, such as methadone. This change will help expand access to methadone and other medication for opioid use disorder options in rural and underserved areas.

You can read an article detailing the DEA requirements and other considerations under the new rule here.
