Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) and Dispensing – Required Training

In accordance with the Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) and Dispensing Policy, members are reminded that the Designated Manager (DM) must be trained in methadone by taking the CAMH Opioid Dependence Treatment (ODT) Core Course within six months of beginning a methadone practice. In addition to the DM, at least one staff pharmacist must complete these training requirements and must do so within one year.

The College is aware that space within the CAMH ODT Core Course is limited, and members may require several attempts at registration before securing a spot. However, additional training opportunities are available and members should explore this training while concurrently pursuing the required course registration with CAMH. 

Members are responsible for ensuring that they have obtained the skills, knowledge and training to dispense methadone in a safe and effective manner, prior to engaging in such practice.

Learn more about the key requirements for methadone dispensing.
