Asam Assessment And Treatment Planning


The decision to enter residential treatment depends on more than just whether you are using alcohol and other drugs. Each person seeking admission into Harbor House will participate in a comprehensive intake assessment based on the ASAM Level of Care Placement Criteria (American Society of Addiction Medicine). The assessment includes evaluation of the following six life dimensions together to ensure that residential treatment ASAM Level 3.5 or 3.1 is the best option for the person.

  1. Acute Intoxication and/or Withdrawal Potential
  2. Biomedical Conditions and Complications
  3. Emotional, Behavioral, or Cognitive Conditions and Complications
  4. Readiness To Change
  5. Relapse, Continued Use, Or Continued Problem Potential
  6. Recovery/Living Environment

The results of the ASAM assessment are used to create person-centered individual treatment plans based on personal needs, goals and objectives that consider a person’s age, gender, race, ethnicity, language, literacy, spirituality, culture, trauma history and co-occurring physical and mental health issues.
