About the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act

Did you know? On January 26, 2018, the Governor signed SB1001, known as the “2018 Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act.” The new requirements related to veterinarians became effective on April 26, 2018 that “requires health professionals who are authorized to prescribe or dispense schedule II controlled substances AND who have a valid U.S. DEA registration number to complete at least 3 hours of opioid, substance use disorder or addiction-related continuing education each license renewal cycle.”

The opioid CE requirement to renew your Arizona veterinary license is for each licensing period, per the Arizona State Veterinary Medical Examining Board (click here to read more about this requirement).

Note: July 2023: Veterinarians exempt from new DEA eight-hour education requirement (read article).
