Part 2 – Continuation of AM Session
While many clinicians have a working knowledge of The ASAM Criteria, there is a need for improved skills to carefully assess clients in a multidimensional way; identify a focused, effective and efficient individualized treatment plan; and effectively manage care using ASAM multidimensional assessment.
Specific hands-on exercises will build skills to implement the ASAM Criteria through careful assessment, tailored treatment planning and broadening services to provide a more flexible continuum of care.
There will also be application of The ASAM Criteria to the interface between criminal justice, mandated clients and treatment providers, with a focus on Dimension 4, Readiness to Change and Dimension 5, Relapse, Continued Use or Continued Problem Potential. Participants are encouraged to bring clinical and systems dilemmas to discuss.
