Clinicians involved in planning and managing care may have an understanding of The ASAM Criteria, but can improve skills in assessment, linkage and monitoring treatment services and individualized treatment. Managers, payers of care and those who mandate people to addiction treatment also need to understand the concepts and content of The ASAM Criteria.

This one-day workshop is designed to review the underlying principles and content of The ASAM Criteria – Treatment Criteria for Addictive, Substance-Related, and Co-Occurring Conditions (2013) and improve skills in individualized treatment and care management.  Specific hands-on exercises will help participants implement The ASAM Criteria and organize assessment data to manage care.  It will help clinicians and care managers improve communication around level of care decisions and utilization management.

2.    Apply ASAM Criteria multidimensional assessment to individualize service strategies and level of care, including with mandated clients.
