Utilization Criteria Integration: Six Dimensional Assessment through the Continuum

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria, 3rd Edition, is the most widely used and comprehensive set of guidelines for assessment, placement, treatment planning, continued service, and transfer/discharge of clients with substance use and co-occurring disorders. The Criteria utilizes six dimensions to form a broad assessment, which in turn provides information for service and treatment planning across all levels of care.
This online interactive series will provide collaborative training and real-time practice opportunities essential to the development and/or refinement of applying Criteria in a clinical setting. Emphasis is placed on applying Criteria for in-depth assessment, proper placement, service and treatment planning, continued service and transfer/discharge of clients.

 Describe the continuum of care by Levels of Service
 Demonstrate, through participation in group discussions and activities, how to apply the six Dimensional Assessment for placement into a level of care
 Explain the 0-4 Risk Rating and overall Severity Rating for proper level of care recommendations
 Describe how to develop behavioral focused treatment goals based on Six Dimensional Assessment properly using Six Dimensional Assessment results
 Discuss Continued Service, Transfer, and Discharge Criteria
