Understanding and Integrating ASAM into Everyday Behavioral Health Treatment

This class is designed for those who may be already using the ASAM Criteria but never have taken a formal class, as well as mental health clinicians who are new to using this tool. Levels of care and the six dimensions will be explored.

Updates/changes from the ASAM PPC-2R will be reviewed.

The focus of this class will be on how to purposefully sort client issues to ensure we accurately recommend specifically what the client needs in order to maximize treatment effectiveness.

Day 2 will focus participant identified needs and could include: advocating for services not available, what does IOP look like, ensuring services are therapeutic in nature, documentation, and other needs as identified.
