ASAM Public Policy Statements are statements of ASAM’s positions and recommendations regarding addiction‐related issues, clinical care, and health policy.


The ASAM Public Policy Committee (PPC) is responsible for overseeing the development of ASAM Policy Statements and joint policy statements with allied organizations. It also considers and recommends endorsement of non-ASAM (external) policy statements.
