About the Course:
This article examines the idea of treating tobacco use disorder like substance use disorder. While smoking kills over 480,000 people in the US annually, treatment has been nominal compared to other forms of substance use disorders. It explains nicotine use as it applies to the ASAM Criteria for Patient Placement and levels of care and surmises that there should be parity in treatment. It also includes Medicare and Medicaid codes for billing brief intervention for smoking cessation.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, An Argument for Change in Tobacco Treatment Options Guided by the ASAM Criteria for Patient Placement created by Jill M. Williams, MD. and Marc L. Steinberg, PhD, in 2016.
