Free MOUD/ALTO Virtual Training

A recent study, Rural-Urban Disparities in SUD Screening and Treatment revealed a significant disparity in the availability of Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) and addiction consulting services. At the same time overdose deaths are not decreasing as shown in the March 2024 snapshot report. 

If you are a provider/prescriber in a rural hospital, clinic, or emergency department interested in learning how to treat patients with MOUD or in expanding your knowledge of Alternatives to Opioids (ALTO), attend one of MHA’s free MOUD and ALTO training sessions.

Those eligible for the training are providers/prescribers in hospitals, ERs and clinics in rural communities (excludes the Twin Cities Metro and Duluth).

The benefits of this training session include: 

  • Increase access to treatment for those suffering from opioid use disorder and offers ALTO for treating pain. 
  • Eligible to earn 4 CME units through the Minnesota Medical Association. 
  • It meets the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) requirements for MOUD. 
  • In our virtual training model, no travel is necessary. 

We encourage rural providers/prescribers to register for one of the training sessions: 

  • October 3: 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.
  • October 8: 8:00 – 12:00 p.m.


This is a free educational session funded through a Minnesota Department of Health and Human Services’ grant aimed at improving access to treatment for those with an OUD living in rural communities in Minnesota. Please login to your MHA account to get registered. If you don’t have an account with MHA, please reach out to
