Addictions Screening, Assessment, and Referral Certificate (ASAR)
The Addictions, Screening, Assessment, and Referral (ASAR) Certificate teaches professionals how to play an active role within their organizations in screening for addictions — and, more important, getting individuals with addictions the treatment they need.
The technique is known as “brief intervention,” and it works. Studies back up the effectiveness of brief intervention in bringing about immediate changes in individuals —and in providing referrals for specialized treatment.
Brief intervention can make the difference in organizational performance and in eliminating the devastating impact addictions have on individuals.
