Applying ASAM Placement Curriculum
Finding the time and funds to attend conferences or to earn continuing education contact hours isn't always possible. "The Hazelden Clinical Innovators Series" makes it easier for you.The need for standardized client care was recognized in 1991, when the American Society of Addiction Medicine published its Patient Placement Criteria for treating psychoactive substance use disorders. The newly revised "ASAM-PPC-2R" manual takes on renewed importance with today's emphasis on evidence-based practice. David Mee-Lee presents a clear and concise overview of the new ASAM criteria. You'll learn to: use those criteria to support sound clinical perspectives; validate key thoughts; and, explore new ways of viewing your work without negating your current services.
