The Magic Eight-Ball Method Do we use different lenses to determine treatment? This is what the judge court-ordered This is what we have available The client isnt ready, so Im not recommending anything I just went to this cool training and everyone has that issue We all do the best we can This tool can make our jobs a little easier! What are we going to cover? What is ASAM PPC-2R and the history of its development
How ASAM fits into your assessment process Levels of Care Dimensional Criteria Questions What is ASAM PPC? The Patient Placement Criteria provide: A tool to use along with your clinical judgment Criteria for how bad the problem is and what the client needs A framework for determining who needs what level of care Standard descriptions of levels of care and who might need them
Why adopt it in Kentucky? To give us universal language To make our work easier Its a nationally recognized standard for care To communicate level of need to insurance and managed care companies To improve outcomes To maximize our resources ASAM History A national guideline for placement, continued stay and discharge of patients with alcohol and other drug problems created by the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
American Society of Addiction Medicine was founded in 1950 by a group of physicians with an interest in addictions treatment to address the lack of : common language, systematic assessment, systematic tx approach, effective individualized tx plans ASAM History Received input from physicians, counselors, social workers, and psychologists Previous versions have been continuously critiqued and reviewed helping to create the most useful manual possible The ASAM Criteria followed soon after (1991) and was revised in (1996) and revised again in (2001)
Complications-driven Treatment No Diagnosis Treat complications No continuing care Relapse Program-driven Treatment Diagnosis Program
Aftercare Relapse Individualized, Clinically-driven Treatment Assessment Progress Problems/Priorities Plan
Treatment Client-Directed, Outcome-Informed Treatment Assessment Progress Problems/Priorities Plan Treatment Continuum of levels of treatment
care Level .05 Early Intervention Level I Outpatient Treatment Level II Intensive Outpatient/Partial Hospitalization Level III Residential/Inpatient Treatment Level IV Medically Managed Inpatient Treatment .05 Early Intervention For those individuals who are at high risk for developing substance use disorders or for whom there is insufficient information to document a substance use disorder. Should have the capacity to move individuals in imminent danger to an appropriate level of care or
provide outpatient treatment together with an early intervention for those needing it Examples: DUI education, basic education, early intervention with adolescents Level I: Outpatient Treatment Less than 9 hours of services/week (6 for adolescents) Recovery and/or motivational enhancement strategies Are appropriate for individuals with low severity in all dimensions of assessment with the exception of dimension 4 (readiness to change) Any level may be addiction only (AOS), dual diagnosis capable (DDC), or dual diagnosis enhanced (DDE)
Level II: Intensive Outpatient/Partial Hospitalization IOP is 9+ hours/week; partial hospitalization is 20+ hours/week For clients not needing 24 hour care Provide treatment during the day, after work, or school, in the evenings or weekends Have capacity to provide medical and psychiatric consultation, psychopharmacological consultation, medication management, and crisis services Level III: Residential/Inpatient Treatment They provide 24 hour treatment services in a safe
environment Level III.1: clinically managed low intensity (5 clinical hrs/wk) Level III.3: clinically managed medium intensity (lower intensity milieu for cognitive/other impairments) Level III.5: clinically managed high intensity Level III.7: medically monitored inpatient Where do the Recovery Kentucky Centers fit? Level IV: Medically Managed Inpatient 24 hour medical and nursing care with staff credentialed in mental health and addiction Has the capability of an acute care hospital or psychiatric
hospital For severe, unstable problems in Dimensions 1, 2, and 3 Must be dual diagnosed enhanced (DDE) Medication Assisted Treatment Methadone, Suboxone Can also be meds such as Naltrexone or antabuse Generally provided in Level I Clients on MAT can be in OP, IOP, residential treatment,
detox Assessment 1. What does the client want? Why now? 2. Multidimensional assessment including strengths, supports, resources, risks and deficits 3. Imminent danger Relates to all dimensions Immediate Need Profile Risks that require immediate attention Consider the 3 Hs History Here and now How concerned are you
Six Dimensions Dimension 1: Acute Intoxication/Withdrawal Potential Dimension 2: Biomedical Conditions and Complications Dimension 3: Emotional, Behavioral, or Cognitive Conditions and Complications Dimension 4: Readiness to Change Dimension 5: Relapse, Continued Use or Continued Problem Potential Dimension 6: Recovery/Living Environment Rating Risk in the 6 Dimensions 0 no or very low risk. Stable. 1 mild discomfort, can be stabilized, functioning
restored easily 2 moderate risk/difficulty functioning but can understand support services 3 serious difficulties in or near imminent danger 4 highest concern severe, persistent, poor ability cope with illness, life threatening Can also rate as LOW, MEDIUM, and HIGH to Use a risk rating chart Several examples available: ASAM Checklist Rating of Severity/Function
Can use one that is already made or create your own Risk ratings Intensity of Dimen service sion1 need 0 none None 1 mild
Low 2 moderate Moderate 3 significant Moderately high 4 severe
High 2 3 4 5 6 How do the 6 Dimensions lead to a level of care?
Dimensions 1, 2 and 3 high risk/severity = immediate need for high intensity services Dimensions 4, 5, and 6 balance out strengths and challenges in these dimensions interact combine and contrast to determine the lowest intensity service level that is safe and effective for the client (and others) Dimension 1: Acute Intoxication/Withdrawal Potential What risk is associated with the individuals current level of intoxication? Is there a significant risk of severe withdrawal symptoms or seizure based on past history? Is there significant risk based on the amount, chronicity,
or frequency of use or the recencey of discontinuation or significant reduction in the use of alcohol and/or other drugs? Are there current signs or symptoms of withdrawal? Does the individual have supports to assist in the ambulatory detoxification, if medically safe? Matching assessment of severity of this dimension with level of care Assessment of Severity Level of care 0= no intoxication or withdrawal or
already resolved Does not affect placement 1= minimum to moderate intoxication or withdrawal with minimal risk Level ID outpatient (some onsite monitoring) 2= has some difficulty coping with moderate intox. or withdrawal, some risk of more serious symptoms
Level IID outpatient (extended onsite monitoring) 3= has significant difficulty coping with severe signs and symptoms of intox. or withdrawal, risk of more severe symptoms Level III.2D residential (social setting detox) or Level III.7D (social setting detox with medication support) 4= incapacitated with severe signs and symptoms, continued use poses clear danger, withdrawal poses clear danger
Level IVD inpatient (hospital) Dimension II: Biomedical Conditions and Complications Are there current physical illnesses, other than withdrawal, that need to be addressed because they create risk or complicate treatment? Are there chronic conditions that affect treatment? Hypertension, cardiac disorders, vascular disorders, diabetes, and seizure disorders are all high on the list Chronic benign pain syndromes are often an issue There are a range of chronic disorders that may need to be considered in placement decisions
Matching assessment of severity of this dimension with level of care Assessment of Severity Level of Care 0: no biomedical problems Does not affect placement 1= adequate ability to cope, mild to moderate signs and symptoms
Level I 2= some difficulty coping, problems may interfere with treatment, fails to care for serious biomedical problems Level I, II, or III 3= poor ability to cope with serious biomedical problems Level IV 4= incapacitated with severe biomedical
problems Level IV Dimension 3: Emotional, Behavioral, or Cognitive Conditions and Complications Are there current psychiatric illnesses or psychological, behavioral, emotional, or cognitive problems that need to be addressed because they create risk or complicate treatment? Are there chronic conditions that affect treatment? Do any emotional, behavioral, or cognitive problems appear to be an expected part of the addictive disorder, or do they appear to be autonomous? Even if connected with the addictive disorder, are they severe
enough to warrant specific mental health treatment? Is the individual capable of managing the activities of daily living? Does the individual have the resources to cope with the emotional, behavioral, or cognitive problems? Matching assessment of severity of this dimension with level of care Assessment of Severity Level of Care 0= no emotional or mental health problem or if it exists, it is stable
Does not affect placement 1= diagnosed mental disorder requiring intervention but does not interfere with treatment Level I 2= persistent mental illness with symptoms that interfere with treatment but do not constitute immanent risk Level II
3= serious symptoms, disability, and impulsivity but not requiring involuntary hospitalization Level III 4= serious symptoms, disability and impulsivity requiring involuntary hospitalization. Level IV Dimension 4: Readiness to Change
Pre-contemplation: does not know they have a problem. In denial. Avoids thinking about their behavior. Risk rating: 4 Contemplation: aware of problem but ambivalent. Teeter between cost and benefit of continued use. Risk rating: 3 Preparation: intending to take action in the immediate future Risk rating: 2 Action: specific overt changes have been made in the last 6 months to reduce risk. Risk rating: 1 Maintenance: achieved change goals for 6+ months. Risk rating: 0 Matching assessment of severity of this dimension with level of care Not as direct a correlation between Dimensions 4, 5, and 6
and levels of care May need to use motivational strategies to attract them into treatment Resistance is not unexpected and does not exclude clients from treatment If risk is low in other dimensions, may work on increasing motivation in a lower level of care first to prepare for treatment: a discovery plan If high risk/severity in other dimensions, may need to contain the client and do motivational enhancement in a higher level of care Look for strengths can build on past successes and strategies Dimension 5: Relapse, Continued Use
or Continued Problem Potential Relapse: stops using on purpose and begins again Continued use: never stops using to begin with Is the individual in danger of continued substance use or relapse? Would continued use/relapse be dangerous to them or others (children, other drivers, paramour)? How severe are the problems and further distress if the individual is not successfully engaged in treatment at this time? How aware is the individual of relapse triggers, ways to cope with cravings to use, and skills to control impulses to use or impulses to harm self or others?
Matching assessment of severity of this dimension with level of care Have to consider in relation to other dimensions High severity can indicate need for higher intensity of services but not necessarily Consider the lowest intensity that is safe and effective Examples: High likelihood of smoking marijuana with low risk to self of others High motivation for treatment (dimension 4) but continued use or relapse in OP/IOP services Dimension 6: Recovery/Living Environment
Assess for risks, issues, strengths, skills, and resources in: Recovery supports Living environment Family, friends, social network Work/school Finances Transportation Legal mandates/requirements Matching assessment of severity of this dimension with level of care Have to consider in relation to other dimensions High severity can indicate need for higher intensity of
services but not necessarily Consider the lowest intensity that is safe and effective Examples: if homeless but able to reduce/stop using Stable home, good supports but unable to stop using High risk of being beat up by paramour, high risk of relapse/continued use, low or high severity on readiness to change Example: Amy Risk ratings Intensity of service

High risk in relapse/continued use potential Some strengths in recovery environment and readiness to change x x x Amys Story What level of care does Amy need based on ASAM placement criteria? What do you anticipate as Amys response to your recommended level of care?
How do you talk with Amy using the ASAM criteria information? If Amy disagrees with the initial recommendation for level of care, what other options would you consider for your plan? Documenting ASAM Your Director will tell you exactly how your agency wants you to document ASAM (what forms or paperwork) Everyone will document this: 1. Level of Care/Service Indicated (ASAM # or service name) 2. Level of Care/Service Received (ASAM # or service name) 3. Reason for Difference:
Service not available Provider judgment Client preference
Client on waiting list for appropriate service Service available, no payment source Geographic accessibility Family responsibility Language Not applicable Not listed (specify) When to use ASAM At first contact with client (at assessment, when referral is made, to see if a referral is appropriate for your program) During treatment If not doing well
If achieving goals At discharge To see what the client needs next Continued Treatment Guidelines Keep the client in the current level of care if: 1. They are making progress but not yet achieved their goals 2. They are not yet making progress but has the capacity to resolve their problems, are actively working on goals, and continued treatment is necessary to reach their goals 3. New problems have been identified that can be treated at this level Discharge and Transfer Criteria
Consider transferring if one of these: 1. They have achieved their goals and resolved the problem (transfer to a lower level of care) 2. They are unable to resolve the problem despite adjustments to the treatment plan (increase level of care) 3. They demonstrate a lack of capacity to resolve the problems (increase level of care) 4. If the problems get worse or more problems emerge that cant be effectively treated at this level of care (increase level of care) Additional training on ASAM 1. Multidimensional Assessment 2.
