American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) 2-Day Criteria Skills Training
The course times are:
0830-1500 CEST (Europe)
0230-0900 EST (New York)
This two-day, application-focused training provides participants with an in-depth look at the theoretical foundations of the Criteria, including clinically driven services, biopsychosocial assessment, the six dimensions, continued stay and transfer/discharge criteria. Incorporating the use of the new edition of The ASAM Criteria, participants have opportunities for skill practice at every stage of the treatment process: assessment, engagement, treatment planning, continuing care and transfer or discharge.
