Dear Massachusetts Controlled Substance Registrants:

Recent amendments to 105 CMR 700.000 authorize pharmacists and pharmacy interns to administer medications for treating mental illness and substance use disorder, in accordance with Department guidance. The purpose of this circular letter is to provide guidance to pharmacists and pharmacy interns who choose to administer any of the approved medications. There is no requirement for pharmacists or pharmacy interns to administer these medications. This circular letter also includes guidance to prescribers whose patients are administered any of the approved medications in a pharmacy setting.

Please find a copy of the circular letter attached. Verified .pdf circular letter from DPH

Sincerely,
Drug Control Program
Massachusetts Department of Public Health
