    Substance misuse and addiction are important domains of health, illness, and wellness that relate to numerous other physical conditions. Assessment of patients for substance use disorder should be a part of routine medical care across all medical specialties. Obstetricians and gynecologists are already treating women with substance use disorder, even if they are not recognizing it. Failure to identify and address substance misuse and substance use disorder compromises the care these women receive from their providers.

The ASAM Criteria Course aims to educate multiple audiences on the use and practice of The ASAM Criteria®. The course is designed to introduce healthcare professionals to the skills and practices needed to provide care according to The ASAM Criteria standards.
