In preparation for a fourth edition of The ASAM Criteria, Hazelden Publishing is accepting feedback on recently posted draft standards for caring for patients with addiction or substance use disorders.

“As states across the country work to improve their addiction treatment systems, they are rapidly adopting The ASAM Criteria,” R. Corey Waller, MD, MS, editor-in-chief of the fourth edition of The ASAM Criteria, said in a press release from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. “For our part, it is imperative to keep these standards updated to reflect the latest research and best clinical practices.”

The fourth edition of The ASAM Criteria, a comprehensive set of guidelines for placement, stay, transfer or discharge of patients with addiction, will include a companion multimedia digital product to allow for more widespread implementation of addiction treatment standards.

The goal of the revised edition is to simplify the presentation of information and provide updates on recent research and best practices, according to the release.

Hazelden Publishing will accept feedback until Nov. 11 and plans to publish the revised edition in fall 2023.
