ASAM Criteria Fundamentals
This class is designed for those who may be already using the ASAM Criteria, but have never taken a formal class. Levels of care and the six dimensions will be explored. Updates and changes from the ASAM PPC-2R will also be reviewed. The focus of this class will be on how to purposefully sort client issues to ensure that clients' needs are accurately recommended. How to advocate for services when they are not readily available will also be discussed.
ASAM Criteria and Documentation
This class is designed for those who have already taken a formal class on the ASAM Criteria. This class will take an in-depth look at how to use the criteria not only for determining level of care, but in all stages of documentation and treatment planning throughout the clientâ€™s treatment episode. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and practice their interviewing and documentation skills throughout the class, so come prepared with questions.
