About the Course:
Addiction Treatment Matching: Research Foundations of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria focuses on the state-of-the-art in addictions placement matching. This book examines the ASAM Patient Placement Criteria (PPC) which promises a national standard to settle the conflict between treatment programs and managed care. The research in this book has led the majority of U.S. states to endorse the ASAM Criteria. This timely resource will help providers, insurers, and payers work together to provide effective treatment for people with alcohol and drug problems.
This course is based on the book, Addiction Treatment Matching: Research Foundations of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria created by David R. Gastfriend, MD (Editor)
