The Addiction Severity Index (ASI) is one of the most universally used instruments for the assessment of substance abuse and related problems. This Blending Team has completed products that include a 6-hour continuing education curriculum package addressing how to transform required "paperwork" into clinically useful information. These products also address the key tenets of treatment objectives and interventions (Measurable, Attainable, Time-limited, Realistic and Specific) referred to as Treatment Planning "M.A.T.R.S.". Products were completed in 2005.
