Watch a live recording from a recent Ohio webinar to learn the basics of how to implement ASAM’s criteria and the ASAM CONTINUUM®.
ASAM presented to the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services to help the state providers implement a newly passed Ohio Administrative Code Rule 5122-27-06 that requires certified providers of addiction services to assess client level of care utilizing ASAM Criteria. In issuing a new rule, Ohio joined the more than 30 states that require the use of ASAM’s criteria. Webinar presenters included David Mee-Lee, MD, FASAM, Chief Editor, The ASAM Criteria and David R. Gastfriend, MD, DFASAM, Chief Architect, the ASAM CONTINUUM, The ASAM Criteria Decision Engine™. The presentation was designed to introduce providers to ASAM’s criteria and its core concepts, and aid providers in developing an implementation plan.
