Event Type: Educational Event
What: Addiction therapy has a wide variety of clinical practices and admission and utilization criteria. The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) recognized the need for a uniform set of criteria to assess and treat patients and created the ASAM Criteria, now the most widely used and comprehensive national guidelines for placement, continued stay and discharge of patients with alcohol and other drug problems. The ASAM Criteria help individuals better understand the areas of their lives that have influenced and been influenced by their substance-use behavior. ASAM has classified these areas into six different dimensions. These dimensions help the individual and his or her treatment team or clinician identify the strengths, resources and functional deficits that determine the focus of services and interventions. It is ultimately these dimensions that guide the individual�s service plan in meeting his or her specific needs. We will review the history & practice case studies.
