Acudetox Registration

As of January 2024 Acudetox Registration/Renewal will begin the process of renewing every 3 years.

To maintain an active acudetox license you will need to renew your license.

In order to stagger the roll out of the new renewal dates, all licensed Acudetox are being separated out into 3 groups.  One third of the existing licensees will register for 1 year in 2024, one third will register for 2 years, and one third will register for the full 3 years.  The 1 and 2 year renewals will be pro-rated, and those licensees will register for the full 3 years at their next renewal.  

At this time, acudetox registration may not be completed online. Registration forms will be sent out via postal service at least 60 days in advance of the expiration date.

For any questions related to the new Acudetox 3 year renewal, please contact us at using the subject line: “Acudetox renewal”, and please also include your license number.  This will help us route your request appropriately for a faster response.


  • The registration fee includes a $1 per year Office of Patient Protection fee. These fees are required by statute. The remaining fee is required by the TMB.

    These fees are explained in more detail in the chart below.

    NEW - TMB Transitions to electronic licenses

    The Texas Medical Board is transitioning to electronic licenses for a more paperless experience and to allow for enhanced licensee control.   As of September 1, 2019 the Board will no longer issue paper licenses after a completed registration/renewal for the following license types:

    • Physician (including telemedicine, administrative, conceded eminence and public health)
    • Physician Assistant
    • Acupuncturist
    • Acudetox
    • General Medical Radiologic Technologist
    • Limited Medical Radiologic Technologist
    • Non-Certified Radiologic Technician
    • Respiratory Care Practitioner
    • Medical Physicist
    • Perfusionist


    What does this mean for licensees renewing their licenses on or after September 1, 2019?

    Once your registration/renewal is complete, please allow 2 business days for processing.  After that time, you will be able to log into your MyTMB account and view, save or print a copy of your active license.  In addition, after September 1, 2019, you will be able to use the same system to view, save or print a copy of your active license as needed.


    Please note that primary source verification regarding licensure status is always available to anyone, including licensees’ employers, via the TMB website through Look up a License.
