Penny Mills (ASAM) discusses the NIAAA Alcohol Treatment Navigator


This is Penny Mills with the American Society
of Addiction Medicine. I’m very excited about the NIAAA Treatment
Navigator. It’s going to be a tremendous resource for
families as well as clinicians to access and understand what quality addiction treatment
is. That’s what ASAM stands for – is assuring
access to quality treatment and this Navigator tool will be a fantastic resource to help
families and others understand what quality addiction treatment is. It will also help primary care clinicians
if they screen patients and then need to make a referral for treatment, they will turn to
this resource to help patients that they see in their practices. Congratulations, NIAAA, for a great and valuable
resource.
