Harm Reduction Approach within ASAM Criteria Framework: 1-Day

October 29, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm


The ASAM Criteria provides guidelines focusing on coordinating medical
care, providing therapeutic alternatives, evaluating safety, addressing
co-occurring disorders, involving social supports, and documenting
clinical needs within the framework of the six dimensions. This includes
setting and evaluating individualized measurable treatment goals which
drive variable lengths of stay based on the needs of the person served.
The Criteria centers on the clinically indicated intensity of care based on
an ongoing assessment, determining progress based on the
individualized plan of care, making appropriate referrals and
recommendations, and providing adequate social support referrals
when needed. This training provides skill building in the use of the
ASAM Criteria as a framework for determining the most appropriate
intensity of services and how a harm reduction model/approach;
specifically providing strategies for working with clients on goal setting,
application of risk reduction skills and evaluation of treatment goals fits
within the broader framework of the Criteria’s six dimensions and levels
of care.
