Become an ASAM Author

ASAM accepts proposals from authors and editors who wish to have the Society publish their work. The ASAM Publications Council reviews all book proposals and provides editorial guidance for potential Society publications.

ASAM Publications define the core content of addiction medicine and convey new advances in the field. Publications interface with key Society functions and contribute to the Society’s core purpose to improve the care and treatment of people with the disease of addiction and advance the practice of addiction medicine.
