    • After a brief discussion of addiction as a chronic disease, participants will review the underlying concepts of the ASAM Criteria. They will examine each of the six dimensional criteria in detail and discuss how they lead to a decision about placement of a patient in a particular level of care. All levels of care will be discussed in detail. The formulation of and ongoing evolution of treatment goals in direct relation to the criteria will be reviewed, along with the technique of moving patients through levels of care. Specific cases will be presented for evaluation. Participants are encouraged to bring personal examples for review as well.
