ASI Training

Evidence Based, Proven Effective, & Designed for Transfer

The Addiction Severity Index (ASI) is a standardized, semi-structured, multi-focused screening and assessment instrument used to establish the nature and severity of possible Medical, Employment, Drug, Alcohol, Legal, Family, Social, and/or Psychiatric Problems a person may present with. The information collected using the ASI has clinical, program evaluation and research utility.

While many interviewers are skilled at asking the questions in the ASI, they are not as skilled or knowledgeable regarding the clinical significance and interpretation of the answers to those questions. Completion of the course will provide participants with the knowledge, skills and support materials required to administer and use the ASI more effectively in their clinical settings, and to better understand the relationship and functionality of data collected with the ASI to making substance abuse or dependence diagnosis, patient placement decisions (a.k.a. level of care recommendations), assessing criminogenic risk and treatment planning.

Do you just want to say that you, and/or your staff were trained to use the ASI, or would you prefer to say that you, and/or your staff learned how to use the ASI and can prove it?

We are the only training and education organization in the country whose ASI courses both onsite and online utilize a curriculum that is Evidence Based, Proven Effective, and Designed for Transfer. We will continue to work with you post training to help you gain the knowledge necessary to administer the ASI correctly.
