GAO reviewed the Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) new rule on the implementation of the provision of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 (CARA) relating to the dispensing of narcotic drugs for opioid use disorder. GAO found that (1) the final rule expands the categories of practitioners who may, under certain conditions on a temporary basis, dispense a narcotic drug in schedule III, IV, or V for the purpose of maintenance treatment or detoxification treatment under CARA; and (2) DEA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
