OhioMHAS is sponsoring ten ASAM Criteria Trainings throughout Ohio

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services is sponsoring 10, two-day, application-focused trainings that provide physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants with an in-depth look at the theoretical foundations of the Criteria, including clinically driven services, biopsychosocial assessment, the six dimensions, continued stay and transfer/discharge criteria. Incorporating the use of the new edition of The ASAM Criteria , participants have opportunities for skill practice at every stage of the treatment process: assessment, engagement, treatment planning, continuing care and transfer or discharge. Trainings are hosted by Train for Change, Inc.

All participants receive a FREE copy of The ASAM Criteria and an in-depth Training Journal to guide the training experience and as a resource for continuing skill application, as part of the training.  This opportunity is free of charge and offers 13 CME credits.
