Company Releases New CE Course on Current ASAM Criteria for Healthcare Professionals

23:40 EST 31 Dec 2013 | PR Web

Ce-classes.com releases a new ce course to help healthcare professionals understand the latest ASAM criteria. This continuing education course explains the American Society of Addiction Medicine's criteria for admission and treatment at substance abuse facilities and treatment centers.

(PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Ce-Classes.com has reviewed and summarized the latest American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria in its latest continuing education course. This criteria is used by drug treatment centers across the country as a unified set of standards for the assessment, treatment planning and levels of care for clients who have substance abuse problems. Many states and insurance companies require that the ASAM criteria be used in determining level of care. The latest criteria were published in October of 2013 and many substance abuse counselors are unfamiliar with the changes and newest standards.

CE-Classes.com has reviewed the changes and summarized them in one easy to understand course, Understanding and Using the Current ASAM Criteria, which is designed to familiarize professionals with the history of ASAM, the assessment process and levels of care. “We are happy to provide this summary of the changes so that all substance abuse counselors can become up to date with the most current criteria. It is difficult for any professional to keep up with changes in the field, and our course on the current ASAM criteria is an easy way to do that,” says Dr. Toni DiDona, company vice president and director of continuing education.
