  • The ASAM National Practice Guideline Special Populations Webinar (October)

    Includes a Live Event on 10/25/2016 at 3:00 PM (EDT)

    Adolescents - This webinar will provide important recommendations to help clinicians treat adolescents who have complex medical and environmental needs.

    This webinar will be recorded for archived viewing.

    This special populations webinar series follows the National Practice Guideline overview webinar which outlined the recommendations from ASAM's National Practice Guideline for the Use of Medications in the Treatment of Opioid Use Disorders, which is the first guideline to include all medications to treat opioid use disorder.

    The treatment of adolescents with opioid use disorder presents many unique medical, legal, and ethical dilemmas that may complicate treatment. Given these unique issues, adolescents with opioid use disorder often benefit from services designed specifically for them. The Adolescents Webinar will provide an overview of the recommendation and in-depth information treating adolescents from ASAM's National Practice Guideline.


    This webinar is primarily intended for clinicians involved in evaluating patients and providing authorization for pharmacological treatments at any level.

    At the conclusion of the webinar, participants should be able to:

    • Recognize epidemiology of opioid use disorder and the treatment gap among patients misusing opioids and heroin.
    • Summarize the guideline's treatment recommendations for special populations and discuss how they should be used in practice.
    • Identify the fundamental components of an OUD patient assessment and diagnosis for special populations with opioid use disorders.
    • Discuss the unique needs and treatment recommendations for adolescents.

    The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

    ASAM designates this live activity for a maximum of .75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

    The Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000)
    DATA 2000 specifies training is necessary for physicians to obtain a waiver to engage in office‐based treatment of opioid use disorders using drugs approved by the FDA on Schedules III, IV, and V. This course addresses those requirements using a curriculum approved by CSAT/SAMHSA and ASAM, one of the national organizations named in the DATA 2000 legislation as eligible to prepare and administer these courses. To qualify for authority to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid dependence, DATA 2000 requires physicians to complete not less than 8 hours of training.

    The ASAM Buprenorphine Waiver Blended Course Format
    ASAM offers this 8 hour course in a blended format combining online and live learning to meet the needs of today's busy physicians. The first half of the course is administered online through 4 hours of independent self-paced learning followed by a competency exam which must be successfully completed as part of the process to obtain a waiver for prescribing buprenorphine. The second half of the course is delivered by recognized national experts in a 4 hour interactive and engaging face to face classroom setting.

  • The ASAM National Practice Guideline Special Populations Webinar (August)

    Recorded On: 08/30/2016

    Individuals in the Criminal Justice System - This webinar will provide important recommendations to help clinicians treat individuals in the criminal justice system with opioid use disorder who have complex medical and environmental needs.

    This special populations webinar series follows the National Practice Guideline overview webinar which outlined the recommendations from ASAM's National Practice Guideline for the Use of Medications in the Treatment of Opioid Use Disorders, which is the first guideline to include all medications to treat opioid use disorder.

    A substantial proportion of persons in prisons, jails, drug courts, probation, parole, and who are criminally involved have opioid use disorder and related problems. Prison drug use is particularly risky because of the environment. The high concentration of at-risk individuals and general overcrowding can increase the risk of adverse consequences associated with drug use, including violence, drug-related deaths, suicide, and self-harm. The Individuals in the Criminal Justice System webinar will provide an overview of the recommendations and in-depth information on treating individuals in the criminal justice system from ASAM's National Practice Guideline.


    This webinar is primarily intended for clinicians involved in evaluating patients and providing authorization for pharmacological treatments at any level.

    At the conclusion of the webinar, participants should be able to:

    • Recognize epidemiology of opioid use disorder and the treatment gap among patients misusing opioids and heroin.
    • Summarize the guideline's treatment recommendations for special populations and discuss how they should be used in practice.
    • Identify the fundamental components of an OUD patient assessment and diagnosis for special populations with opioid use disorders.
    • Discuss the unique needs and treatment recommendations for individuals in the criminal justice system.

    The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

    ASAM designates this live activity for a maximum of .75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

  • What Raising the Buprenorphine Cap Means for ASAM Members

    Learn about the most recent developments with the new buprenorphine limit, the qualifications needed for prescribing, what a “qualified practice setting” is, and how ASAM members and other doctors may be affected by this recent development.

    WHAT: This one-hour webinar provides an overview of the qualifications, requirements and processes related to applying for and maintaining the higher patient limit, as well as specific implications for ASAM members. Importantly, the webinar addresses practice management issues such as documenting a diversion control plan, demonstrating adherence to evidence-based guidelines, and formalizing agreements with behavioral health service providers.

    WHO: Physicians interested in applying for the higher limit, as well as their practice managers and care team.

    WHY: Evaluate your qualifications for the limit increase and prepare for the application and reporting processes.
