We developed the Treating Addiction Together ECHO to increase provider understanding and utilization of The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria in clinical decision-making. This ECHO was the first of its kind to focus its knowledge transfer on the utilization of The ASAM Criteria for substance use disorder treatment professionals. This ECHO resulted in providers being able to make better level of care determinations and develop treatment plans based on individual needs. 

The Treating Addiction Together ECHO:

  • Increased provider knowledge and skills to utilize The ASAM Criteria
  • Provided access to an expert multidisciplinary team of SUD treatment professionals
  • Developed a learning community of SUD treatment providers throughout NH
  • Utilized ongoing case-based discussions of participant-identified patients using ASAM criteria

The Treating Addiction Together ECHO involved a closed cohort of professionals from across New Hampshire representing a variety of years of experience, geographic locations, and ASAM Level of Care service delivery settings. Participants engaged in 18 one-hour sessions over eight months between October 2019 and June 2020.
