Understanding American Society of Addiction Medicine

Indiana is in the process of revising the administrative rules for addiction services. One of the new additions will be that the rules will be structured around the ASAM Criteria.  ASAM stands for American Society of Addiction Medicine, https://www.asam.org/resources/the-asam-criteria. The new rules will include the ASAM Levels of Care and their support systems, therapies and staffing. Click here to learn more about becoming an ASAM designated provider.

Currently, there are two certification options for addiction treatment service providers, outpatient and regular. For more information and the forms and paperwork required visit http://www.in.gov/fssa/dmha/2943.htm. A link to the current Indiana Administrative Code that governs addiction treatment service providers (Article 4.4.) can also be found on that page.
