Event Details

The Building Blocks of the ASAM Severity Profile – The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM)’s treatment criteria provide separate placement criteria for adolescents and adults to create comprehensive and individualized treatment plans. Adolescent and adult treatment plans are developed through a multidimensional patient assessment over five broad levels of treatment that are based on the degree of direct medical management provided, the structure, safety and security provided and the intensity of treatment services provided. The Mental Health/Substance Use Care Managers in the Utilization Management Department at Partners BHM invite you to participate in a full day of training on the six dimensions, where we will be demonstrating how to build an ASAM Severity Profile to help develop and enhance your treatment plan. Training also includes several case vignettes that we will practice scoring together to assist with teaching the learner how to identify the most appropriate level of care placement.
