Overview

The ASAM Criteria Course will comprise of a comprehensive suite of competency-based learning activities in a distance learning delivery method and the live webinar delivery format that meets the learning needs of the multiple audiences making use of the Criteria and results in the appropriate use of the Criteria in practice. This is a practical training designed to help beginner, intermediate, and advanced counselors, social workers, administrators, and other clinical staff develop patient-centered service plans and make 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.

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 on The ASAM Criteria can gain the initial skill set to deliver care in compliance with The ASAM Criteria.

  2. Identify the six dimensions of the ASAM Criteria’s multidimensional patient assessment.
  3. Determine treatment priorities based on risk assessment to guide treatment and service planning.
  4. Determine an appropriate level of care and treatment priorities based on risk assessment.
  5. Implement the ASAM Criteria, in the context of system challenges, for patients with addiction to ensure appropriate level of care and treatment outcomes.
