The SAMHSA-funded Physician Clinical Support System for Methadone (PCSS-M) is a free, nationwide program through which health care providers needing information and mentoring on methadone treatment for opioid addiction and/or pain can connect with experts in the field.


PCSS-M mentors provide telephone, email and on-site support. They come from across the country and work in licensed opioid treatment programs, pain clinics, primary care, and other practice settings.


The PCSS-M service is available, at no cost, to interested physicians and staff, to assist in the safe and appropriate use of methadone


The PCSS-M is coordinated by the American Society for Addiction Medicine (ASAM) in conjunction with other leading medical societies.











The management of the Physician Clinical Support System for Buprenorphine (PCSS-B) will be moving from the American Society for Addiction Medicine (ASAM) to the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) and its partners, the American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine (AOAAM) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA)
