Advanced ASAM Patient Placement Criteria:

 A One-Day Workshop to Further Enhance Skills Application

If you are a practitioner who has attended an initial ASAM PPC training and want further information and support in applying that knowledge to client/patient cases--this is the workshop for you!  Spend a day discussing any areas of confusion or nuance from the original training and more practice applying your learned assessment skills to clinical cases.  If you are involved in Care Authorization, this is an opportunity to fine tune your skills in determining a response to requests for authorization for care for those clients/patients with SUD or Co-occurring Disorders.
