Integrating Addiction Medicine with Treatment Courts


The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) is partnering with the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) through an Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) grant initiative to allow medical providers active with and new to the drug treatment court field access to training to help guide them in successful integration of services for individuals with substance use disorders involved in the justice system.

The Integrating Addiction Medicine with Treatment Courts course provides six hours of education needed for prescribing clinicians to strengthen skills in partnering with drug courts and advocating for patients who are involved in drug courts. The course will include didactic presentations, small group discussions, FAQs, and challenging case studies. Note that this a pre-course offering for the ASAM 2022 State of the Art Course in Addiction Medicine.
