American Society of Addiction Medicine Releases New Treatment Criteria, Modernizing Care for Addictive Disorders
Date:10/31/2013

Chevy Chase, MD (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) announces the release of the third edition (2013) of The ASAM Criteria. The new text modernizes standards for treatment of addiction and co-occurring conditions, in line with major advancements in the understanding of the disease of addiction over the past decade.

ASAM also announced its plans associated with two products that complement The ASAM Criteria: The ASAM-TRI Quality Review and The ASAM Criteria Software. Together, these products will further unify the addiction field around a single set of criteria for treatment.

The most widely used criteria by treatment professionals, The ASAM Criteria, is a comprehensive set of guidelines that describes the continuum of addiction health services. The criteria take professionals through the process of assessment, service planning, placement, continued stay and transfer/discharge of patients. The ASAM-TRI Quality Review, an intended joint project of ASAM and the Treatment Research Institute (TRI), will provide an independent, expert evaluation of treatment programs.

“Individuals with addiction often receive care that is outdated, inappropriate or does not meet their needs. In addition, it has not been possible for patients, their families and referral sources to easily find out about the content or quality of care provided by treatment programs before the patient enters the program,” said TRI CEO A. Thomas McLellan, PhD. “The ASAM-TRI Quality Review will use The ASAM Criteria to provide consumers and clinicians with clear and relevant information about the quality of addiction treatment programs.”

The new edition of The ASAM Criteria, published by The Change Companies®, is now offered in a user-friendly design – in book and web versions – that guides treatment providers from initial assessment through long-term disease management. There is also
