PCSS Mentoring Program

The Help You Need, to Treat Those Who Need It.

The PCSS Mentoring Program is a national network of trained clinicians with expertise in treating substance use disorders, co-occurring mental disorders, and pain management.

There are three mentoring options available to support your needs, at no cost. To start, we encourage you to make use of Options 1 and 2 below. Still need assistance? View Option 3 for additional one-on-one support.

Option 1: Discussion Forum

An online discussion forum moderated by addiction specialists where health professionals can post questions and receive answers from clinical experts and other colleagues.

*This discussion board is for educational purposes only. Questions should not include patient specific information but should be general in nature. Please reach out to PCSS with any questions.

Option 2: Ask a Clinical Question

Option 3: One-on-one Mentoring

Provides individualized, one-on-one guidance via email, phone, or in-person, (if feasible) to discuss specific clinical issues. Members are “matched up” with one of our mentors in their region. This is the most in-depth of the three PCSS mentoring tools. Please contact pcssmentoring@aaap.org to receive a mentor request form.

This is not a program to offer medical advice about specific patients. Rather, this program is designed for experts to offer general information to clinicians about evidence-based clinical practices in prescribing medications for opioid use disorder. This resource program is one component of a large program of education and mentoring services for providers.
