The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria Foundations Course is an interactive hybrid asynchronous online course
designed to help all levels of 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.
This self-paced course is a combination of reading-based and video-based online learning formats. The flow of this course uses a mix of didactic materials, case studies, learning activities, and assessments to help you deepen your knowledge of the underlying ASAM Criteria principles—how to conduct, multidimensional patient assessment, and determine an appropriate level of care. Further, by utilizing real-world scenarios, the course will prepare you to implement the ASAM Criteria effectively within the context of system challenges.
Upon completion, you will be able to describe the underlying principles and concepts of the ASAM Criteria; identify the six dimensions of the ASAM Criteria's multidimensional patient assessment; 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; and implement the ASAM Criteria, in the context of system challenges, for patients with addiction to ensure appropriate level of care and treatment outcomes.
