ASAM Certification

The ASAM Level of Care Certification addresses the addiction health crisis by establishing processes for validation of treatment program capabilities, building industry transparency, and increasing patient confidence in treatment services. The certification provides an independent assessment of a treatment program’s ability to deliver services consistent with The ASAM Criteria®.

Increasing patient access to evidence-based addiction treatment is critical to overcoming the devastating and deadly challenges of addiction.
