The Addiction Severity Index (ASI) is one of the most universallyused instruments for the assessment of substance abuse and related problems. This Blending Team has designed products that include a 6-hour training which addresses how to transformrequired “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.”
