AMERICAN SOCIETY OF ADDICTION MEDICINE PLACEMENT CRITERIA TRAINING OPPORTUNITY!

An essential part of successful implementation of the Virginia Medicaid Addiction and Recovery Treatment Services (ARTS) Benefit is providers' thorough knowledge of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria for individual assessment and placement.
