* Update: The DEA has issued a formal Temporary Extension of COVID-19 Telemedicine Flexibilities for Prescription of Controlled Medications. This means the prescription of controlled substances such as Adderall will be allowed to be managed online for an additional period of 6 months, until November 11, 2023. The current telemedicine flexibilities allowed during the COVID-19 PHE will remain in place through for a 6 month extension. Additionally, for practitioner-patient telemedicine relationships that are established before the November 11, 2023 deadline, the full set of telemedicine flexibilities regarding prescription of controlled medications will continue to be permitted via a one-year grace period through November 11, 2024.
With the end of the Public Health Emergency (PHE) your patient will need your support when it comes to managing their mental health needs - especially in the case of controlled substance prescriptions.
As you may know, during the pandemic, many patients managed their controlled substance prescriptions via telehealth, this included medication for ADHD. Even with a pre existing diagnosis, Done. patients have always had to go through our own rigorous, technology-supported diagnosis assessment before being prescribed medication. During the pandemic, thousands of patients successfully managed their ADHD treatment through our platform. With the PHE ending- your patient will need us to partner and work together to continue their controlled substance treatment through telehealth with Done.
On February 24, 2023, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) released its new proposed rules for telemedicine and controlled medications. After May 10, 2023, the way controlled substances are prescribed will change.
Existing patients who are prescribed a controlled substance before May 10, 2023: The DEA will require a qualified referral on file before November 7, 2023 to continue treatment with controlled medications via telehealth.
New patients who need controlled substance prescriptions after May 10, 2023: The DEA will require patients who plan to use telemedicine services to manage their prescription to have a qualified referral on file before starting treatment.
A qualified referral is a referral that comes from a provider who sees the patient in person. By submitting this form, you can request that your patient is able to manage their controlled substance prescriptions via telehealth with Done. Depending on the state, this form should be submitted every few months, and will require an in-person physical examination as well.Download Referral Form Here

Clinicians receive the assessment results before their first encounter with a patient, making time spent with them more efficient and allowing them to truly listen to a patient’s concerns during their online ADHD diagnosis appointment.
