18MH034A - The ASAM Criteria Skill Building Two-Day Training

Description

Registration is now closed for this event. The course is completely full.

This two-day, application-focused training provides participants with an in-depth look at the theoretical foundations of the ASAM 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. Special attention will be paid to the Opioid Treatment Services (OTS) chapter of The ASAM Criteria (2013) that includes Opioid Treatment Programs (OTP) and Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT); and the use of psychosocial treatments for clients receiving opioid use disorder treatment medication.
