American Society of Addiction Medicine Receives Top ASAE Honors for CONTINUUM – The ASAM Criteria Decision Engine

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) has earned the 2016 ASAE Power of A (Association) Gold and Silver Awards for the ASAM CONTINUUM, clinical decision software that revolutionizes addiction treatment by standardizing patient assessment and creating an addiction patient registry.

ASAE honored the ASAM CONTINUUM, which is the result of over two decades of work by ASAM, starting with the creation of medical necessity criteria and culminating with the ASAM CONTINUUM’s January 2016 release.

“Congratulations to ASAM for helping to make the world a better and more prepared healthful place,” said Sharon J. Swan, FASAE, CAE, Chief Executive Office of the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and chair of the Power of A Awards Judging Committee. “Their initiative exemplifies how associations are a positive force in our everyday lives – not just the profession or industry they represent, but to society at large.”
