ASAM Level I Classes
ASAM Level I classes are designed according to the ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) criteria for addiction treatment. Specifically, ASAM Level 1 classes provide individuals with a supportive and instructive environment where they are encouraged to develop deeper insights into the causes and conditions, as well as the effects, of their addictive and abusive behaviors. It is well understood in the medical and scientific communities that substance abuse is associated with more fundamental or rudimentary cognitive deficits. Some of these deeper issues may be deficits in emotional regulation, diagnosable affective disorders, or a consequence of a myriad of other socio-cultural, environmental and/or genetic factors.
What is the ASAM Level 1 treatment criteria?
Regardless of their specificity, facilitators of the ASAM Level I classes are trained to assist clients in beginning to illuminate these underlying psychological issues in order to alleviate the drive to pursue addictive avenues to cope with life stressors. Often, additional resources such as one-on-one counseling or pharmacological therapy from licensed and certified clinicians may be necessary to support the treatment process.
Those suffering from substance use disorders are able to find help and begin a lifelong recovery with substance abuse treatment. The road of addiction can be lonely but the path to rehabilitation is led by experts who understand the science and keep in mind the individual circumstances of each unique case. To seek help is to become proactive towards a healthier mind and body. Whether a substance abuse treatment is required by a court in order to appease a criminal offense, the same treatment is utilized and provides a safe and structured intervention. When committing to treatment, the support and knowledge of dedicated professionals can be imperative to maintaining a life without drugs or alcohol. The compassion experienced and the camaraderie that develops whilst participating in substance abuse treatment programs have become pillars of rehabilitation and are a common yet achievable step in preventing harmful recurrences with destructive substances and behaviors.
