ASAM Criteria Training: Understanding the ASAM Criteria

This training will provide an introduction to the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of using a biopsychosocial assessment to develop an individualized treatment plan while taking into consideration a patient’s immediate needs and potential imminent danger. Participants will be given a case scenario for which they are to assess risk across the 6 ASAM dimensions, document the rationale for these risk ratings, while determining the appropriate services to be made available to assist the patient in the recovery process. The ASAM levels of care, along with the levels of withdrawal management will be reviewed.
