Overview of ASAM


This is a closed event.


Treatment providers and program evaluators use The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) 3rd Edition criteria to ensure that clients are placed in the appropriate level of care. This one-day training will provide an overview of ASAM Criteria for clients with substance use and co-occurring disorder diagnoses. The ASAM Criteria utilizes six dimensions to form a broad assessment, which in turn provides information for service and treatment planning across all levels of care. Participants will learn to appropriately apply the admission, continued service, and transfer/discharge criteria for adolescents and adults. Participants will also learn to assess mild, moderate, and severe effects of substance use on each dimension as it relates to placement criteria. Updates of the ASAM 4th Edition will also be discussed.
