It also crosses into the outcomes of behavioral and physical health services. Cherry Health is committed to approaching this issue from an integrated perspective.

C432.M – ASAM Criteria: for Substance Related and Co-occurring Conditions (Beginning Level for All)
3 Credits: Social Work Continuing Education Contact Hours; MCBAP Specific hours; Professional Development
The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria were developed in 1991 in response to the need to have an organized manner for providers to communicate and treatment plan. Today the ASAM Criteria are viewed as a best practice and is the most common tool used for communication between clinicians, referrals, and treatment planning. This course will offer a review and practice of the ASAM criteria for organizing assessment data to identify immediate & multi-dimensional needs, to aid in determination of treatment needs & level of care for individuals with substance-related & co-occurring conditions. The course is designed to equip the student in how to use the ASAM criteria to formulate appropriate clinical responses to presenting symptoms/issues. Credits awarded upon successful completion of this event.
