ALEF Accreditations: NC-DCU

North Carolina Drug Control Unit (NC-DCU)


Among the statutes under which NC-DCU operates are the NC Controlled Substances Act and the NC Controlled Substances Reporting System Act. NC-DCU also oversees the NC Controlled Substances Regulatory, as well as Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) Registration. It is through these statutes and regulatory guidelines that ALEF engages with NC-DCU.

North Carolina’s Drug Control Unit (NC-DCU) registers and regulates all of the state’s Office-Based Opioid Treatment providers. And ALEF is proud to have received full NC-DCU accreditation.

North Carolina Controlled Substances Regulatory


To help prevent diversion and abuse, all controlled substances have strict and specific regulatory requirements for their acquisition, storage, security, inventory and disposal, as well as any importing and exporting. These rules and regulations apply to every individual who manufactures, distributes, dispenses or conducts research with any controlled substance. That, of course, includes ALEF, who readily complies with every applicable rule and regulation set forth by the NC Controlled Substances Regulatory, specifically as regards to Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT).

Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) Registration and Renewal


The NC-DCU requires any individual physician who independently prescribes and/or dispenses Buprenorphine in an office-based setting to annually register with North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). This also includes physicians who prescribe and/or dispense Suboxone and/or any other similarly-focused drugs that are used for the treatment of opiate dependence. ALEF, as an OBOT prescriber and dispenser of both Buprenorphine and Suboxone, has dutifully registered with -- and received approval from -- the NCDHHS.

ALEF & NC-DCU


ALEF is proud to abide by all the rules and regulations set forth by the North Carolina Drug Control Unit (NC-DCU), including those that fall under the NC Controlled Substances Act and the NC Controlled Substances Reporting System Act, as well as the NC Controlled Substances Regulatory. We’re also honored to be registered with and approved under North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services’ Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) Registration mandate. We applaud North Carolina policy-makers for recognizing the efficacy of Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). And we further applaud their efforts to fully regulate evidence-based opioid addiction treatment. We believe it is only through strict and thorough procedural requirements that MAT can be truly effective.
