With the help of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and their criteria, companies are able to create different level ASAM treatment programs.
Level 1 programs can be referred to as outpatient treatment services because of their relatively low intensity. Clients that attend these classes have access to clinicians and addiction professionals through scheduled sessions.
Regularly attending these sessions offer clients an opportunity to be a part of a supportive and instructive environment with peers and counselors.
As a participant in any ASAM program, clients will work towards addressing the issues of addictive substance use in hopes that they can eventually alter their mindset and addictive behaviors.
