Overview of ASAM Criteria for the Management of Client Care

Description: Treatment providers and program evaluators use patient placement criteria to ensure that clients are placed in the appropriate level of care. This webinar will provide an overview of The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria, 3rd Edition for clients with substance use and co-occurring disorders. Participants will learn to appropriately apply the admission, continued service and transfer/discharge criteria for adolescents and adults. 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 assess mild, moderate, and severe effects of substance use on each dimension as it relates to placement criteria.
