Update on American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Training for Providers
In previous Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Updates, treatment providers were encouraged to acquaint, or reacquaint, their staff with ASAM criteria, which will be utilized as the basis for the management of SUD benefits covered by Health First Colorado. As of this month, 260 individuals registered for the ASAM training. About one-half of registrants have completed the first training component. Components #2 and 3 will be offered in June. The Department gratefully acknowledges the cooperation and assistance from the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health and Signal Behavioral Health Network in making this free, one-time ASAM training available to providers.
