Understanding The ASAM CRITERIA - A multidimensional Approach to Treatment



The Central East ATTC has partnered with INOVA Healthcare to deliver ASAM training to hospital staffing. 


Goal: To provide a uniform and common language between patient, providers, and payors that can describe:

  • A multidimensional assessment of a patient's severity of illness
  • That treatment levels of care provided match the severity of the illness
  • The clinical criteria that guides the most efficient placement of patients will have a continuum of care



To Understand How to Utilize the ASAM CRITERIA in Treatment Planning and the Four Features That Characterize it's Rationale:

1. Comprehensive, individualized treatment planning

2. Ready access to services

3. Attention to multiple treatment needs including Risk factors

4. Ongoing reassessment and modification of the plan
