Washoe County Human Services Agency invites you to attend the ASAM training with Dr. David Mee-Lee, a leading expert in co-occurring substance use and mental disorders, with over 40 years of experience in person-centered treatment and program development. Dr. Mee-Lee will present on the ASAM Criteria, spending one full day on understanding and using the ASAM criteria for multidimensional assessment and level of care decisions, and then a full day focused on improving skills in assessment, placement and treatment planning to implement the ASAM criteria and person-centered services.
Day 1 will include an opportunity for our Judicial colleagues to also hear about ways in which ASAM criteria can be complementary to public safety when both are combined artfully and skillfully and applied to persons with a diagnosable substance use or other addictive or co-occurring disorder, who find themselves under the sanctions of the criminal justice system.
