The ASAM Fundamentals of Addiction Medicine is an innovative, case-based workshop designed for providers new to the field of addiction medicine in settings such as primary care, emergency care, and behavioral health, who see patients at risk for or with substance use disorders (SUDs). Participants will learn more about addiction medicine and how to screen, diagnose, treat, and/or refer patients with addiction*.

Addiction is a disease that continues to devastate our communities, but there are treatments available to help patients. Participants of this workshop will learn more about addiction medicine and how to screen, diagnose, treat, and/or refer patients with addiction – many of whom are already being seen for commonly occurring medical and psychiatric comorbidities. 

This live virtual workshop is designed to be energetic and interactive. Sessions throughout the series will include lecture, demonstration of skills and skill building. Participants should plan to attend all four days of sessions at the designated dates and times above. Sessions will be recorded for participants to view after the series concludes. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
  1. Identify one's own feelings and attitudes that promote or prevent therapeutic responses to patients with substance use disorders.
  2. Demonstrate a knowledge of the diseased brain processes when treating patients with addictive behaviors.
  3. Use validated patient screening tools to detect substance use and interpret a spectrum of results.
  4. Use motivational interviewing to enhance patients readiness to change risky behaviors.
  5. Offer the interventions that are appropriate to specific substances and severity of usage pattern.
    1. Respond to hazardous drinking with brief counseling strategies, appropriate to the patient's readiness to change.
    2. For patients suspected of having a SUD, conduct a biopsychosocial assessment to provide a diagnosis and match the patient to an appropriate level of care.
  6. Prescribe pharmacotherapy appropriately for alcohol, tobacco, and opioid use disorders.
  7. Offer patients and families information and referral to behavioral interventions including support groups and mutual aid groups that assist in the recovery process.
