ASAM Criteria-(B) - Integrated treatment planning and documentation required to support current level of care and transition to other levels of care.
Intermediate course – Step 2 in the ASAM Series
The ASAM criteria are a set of criteria for providing outcome-oriented and results-based care in the treatment of addiction. They provide separate placement criteria for adolescents and adults to create comprehensive and individualized treatment plans to be used in service planning and treatment across all services and levels of care. With the approval of the Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) Waiver, implementation of the ASAM criteria will become an integral part of system transformation in California. This interactive, skills-based training will begin with a brief overview of the ASAM criteria and a cross-walk between the levels of care articulated in the ASAM criteria and the levels of care defined by the DMC-ODS Waiver. Following this brief review, the presenter will focus the remaining portion of the training on a detailed review of the four progress note formats approved for use in clinical files by SAPC, which are: (1) SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan); (2) GIRP (Goals, Intervention, Response, and Plan); (3) SIRP (Situation, Intervention, Response, and Progress); and (4) BIRP (Behavior, Intervention, Response, and Plan), followed by instruction on how to develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan. Each focus group format will be reviewed in detail, and participants will have the opportunity to practice drafting progress notes through a series of case scenarios.
At the conclusion of the ASAM Criteria and Documentation Training (ASAM-B), participants will be able to:
1. Demonstrate ability to apply ASAM risk ratings to information gathered through multidimensional assessment
2. Demonstrate an ability to create an individualized treatment plan based upon the ASAM criteria and risk across the six dimensions of multidimensional patient assessment.
3. Use progress notes to demonstrate movement toward attainment of treatment plan goals
Registration begins at 8:30 AM. Please arrive early to allow ample time to sign-in before the training begins.
