The ASAM Fundamentals of Addiction Medicine is an innovative, case-based workshop designed for providers new to the field of addiction medicine in settings such as primary care, emergency care, and psychiatry, who see patients at risk for or with substance use disorders (SUDs). Participants will learn more about addiction medicine and how to screen, diagnose, treat, and/or refer patients with addiction.*

Addiction is a disease that continues to devastate our communities, but there are treatments available to help patients. Participants of this workshop will learn more about addiction medicine and how to screen, diagnose, treat, and/or refer patients with addiction – many of whom are already being seen for commonly occurring medical and psychiatric comorbidities.

This live workshop is designed to be energetic and interactive. Attendees will work through session activities and cases presented by faculty with participants at their table. Sessions throughout the day will include approximately equal parts lecture, demonstration of skills and skill building.
