Request for ASAM Training

Effective, July 1, 2018 our substance use disorder (SUD) system began transitioning from the Pennsylvania Client Placement Criteria (PCPC) to the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria, per a mandate from the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP). Currently, we have three different training options to assist providers and internal staff with making the transition.  In an effort to make the best of our resources, and to place learners in the proper training, we are asking that the following questionnaire be completed.

Once your submission has been reviewed, we will make the determination of which training is most appropriate based upon your responses. 

If you meet the criteria for the requested training(s), you will be sent a link to register for an upcoming training.  You will receive a response in the beginning of the month.  Feel free to contact ASAMphila@gmail.com with any questions.

Attendance of the full session and completion of an evaluation are required in order to receive credit for this course.  Participants who miss more than 30 minutes of class time (arriving late, leaving early, etc.) will not receive credit for having attended.

All participants MUST create a user profile on the Train for Change website prior to attending the class.  Please save your “user id” and “password” as BHTEN is unable to reset these for you. In the event you need to reset either, you will need to contact the Train for Change help desk. Registration links for ASAM trainings will be only be sent to individuals that have requested the training via the BHTEN website. Individuals that register for an ASAM training, but did not submit their information via the BHTEN website or during a prior collection period, will be removed from the training. Per state regulations, no one will be allowed entrance into the course without a profile prior to the day of the training.
