ASAM Criteria Training: Documentation and Other Procedures – ASAM-B (Virtual; DHCS-TA)

This interactive, skills-based, intermediate-level virtual training will begin with a brief overview of the ASAM criteria and a cross-walk between the levels of care articulated in the ASAM criteria and the levels of care defined by the DMC Waiver. Following the brief review of the ASAM criteria, participants will take a case scenario, develop risk ratings based upon a completed assessment, and then develop an individualized treatment plan to address the problem areas identified across each of the six dimensions, including long and short term goals, and actions steps the patient and staff will implement. From the treatment plan, instruction will be given in developing notes that document progress on the treatment plan goals. Participants will practice drafting progress notes reflective of the problems, goals and action steps established on the treatment plan.



At the conclusion of the ASAM Criteria Training (ASAM-B), participants will be able to:

1) Summarize the ASAM criteria and determine and document the rationale for risk ratings to information

gathered through a multidimensional assessment. 2) Determine an appropriate level of care, based upon the risk ratings and service needs in the case scenario presented. 3) Demonstrate the ability to take information from a multidimensional assessment create an individualized treatment plan based upon the ASAM criteria and risk ratings across the six dimensions of multidimensional patient assessment. 4) Develop progress notes based upon the treatment plan developed for the case scenario. 5) Review a patient’s discharge summary, and provide examples of relevant support services to enable the patient to have a successful recovery.
