ASAM Criteria 3rd Edition One-Day Foundations Course
Thursday, December 12, 2024 | 8:30am - 5:30pm ET
This 8-hour virtual-live course is the recommended first step to understanding the ASAM Criteria and covers developing patient-centered service plans as well as making objective decisions about patient admission, continuing care, and transfer/discharge for individuals with addictive, substance-related, and co-occurring conditions.
The workshop content is based on information found in The ASAM Criteria: Treatment Criteria for Addictive, Substance-Related, and Co-Occurring Conditions, Third Edition and incorporates an opportunity for participants to practice applying the information through case-based activities. Learners will have the opportunity to ask the presenter questions in real time, participate in polling questions and break into small groups.
The ASAM Criteria Course can also serve as a bridge to the implementation of a provider credentialing program. Providers who have completed ASAM approved training can gain the initial skill set to deliver care in compliance with The ASAM Criteria.
The target audience for this beginner, intermediate, and advanced course include: counselors, social workers, payers, administrators, and other clinical staff.

- Determine treatment priorities based on risk assessment to guide treatment and service planning
- Determine an appropriate level of care and treatment priorities based on risk assessment
