ASAM releases major updates to COVID-19 guidance documents and resources regarding addiction treatment in the wake of COVID-19

by | September 21, 2020

While many states across the country are starting to relax physical distancing and other restrictions put in place in response to COVID-19, the pandemic continues to impact the work of addiction treatment clinicians and programs as they strive to maintain safety for both staff and patients.

People across the country remain at risk for infection from sustained community transmission and increasing population prevalence of the COVID-19 virus. In some areas, this has meant treatment programs may be experiencing another wave of COVID-positive patients and staff. In other areas, a significant impact is only now being felt for the first time.

ASAM has updated its FREE guidance documents and resources to reflect the current environment across multiple areas and a variety of practice settings. Over 15 individual guidance documents are available.
