About the event

This one-day training builds on the pre-requisite 2-Day ASAM Criteria Skills Training. The training provides a brief review and then goes into more specific application, focusing on use of the Criteria to determine admission, continued stay and discharge. With case studies participants will practice applying the risk ratings, dimensional admission criteria specifications, conceptualizing the initial framework of a service plan and then using continued stay/transfer and discharge Criteria. The training will also include a focus on clinical documentation to support the use and application of the Criteria.
*All participants are asked to bring the ASAM Criteria Third Edition book.
