This two part series provides strategies that will help the viewer change their behavior and take control of their life and provides proven techniques that will help them control inappropriate anger.
Applying ASAM Placement Criteria
Finding the time and funds to attend conferences or to earn continuing education contact hours isn't always possible. The need for standardized client care was recognized in 1991, when the American Society of Addiction Medicine published its Patient Placement Criteria for treating psychoactive substance use disorders. The newly revised ASAM-PPC-2R manual takes on renewed importance with today's emphasis on evidence-based practice. David Mee-Lee presents a clear and concise overview of the new ASAM criteria
ARE YOU TALKING TO ME?
Mid/High, Adult, 30 Minutes, 1989 Think about it. Talk about it. Deal with it before it gets hold of you. This is the message delivered to youth at the beginning and conclusion of the film. In between those printed messages is some fast paced, attention riveting material. More than 60 real life situations are depicted in the montage of scenes ranging from experimentation with alcohol and other “gateway” drugs to life threatening involvement with cocaine, crack and heroin. Teenage pregnancy, suicide, peer pressure, family relationships and the harsh realities of criminal action dramatize the effects of substance abuse on every aspect of a user’s life.
Art and Science of Healing
At its inception, medicine was an art utilizing science as a tool (“the healing art”). Today practitioners are overwhelmed with science with little or no attention to the art. The talk is of treatment and management often with a goal of symptom reduction or tolerable recovery. The words “to heal” speak not of reduction or abstinence but of a spiritual freedom to fully experience life in the present moment. Two double-blind studies give differing results-one shows that a certain therapeutic approach is extremely effective and the other shows the statistical equivalent to placebo. What is the difference? It is primarily related to the healing potential manifest by the clinicians. The question then becomes, can this ability be acquired? The answer is this ability is already there-has always been there and always will be there. This course simply helps guide the participant back toward their healing essence.
ASAM Criteria: Adolescent
The American Society of Addiction Medicine patient placement criteria provides uniform language for payers, providers, clinicians, and case managers.

BAC's of Drinking and Driving
Ned ’n Ed, a famous cartoon comedy team, are arrested for driving under the influence. To counteract the negative publicity, they make a film presenting the facts about alcohol and driving. They explain many things about drinking including blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and how alcohol acts on the body and brain
Bath Salts: The Deadly Facts
Bath salts are the newest drug scourge to hit the US. They are currently available online, in gas stations and convenience stores across the nation. In the first few months of 2011, poison control centers nationwide reported a record-breaking increase in ER visits related to bath salts. This timely program gives viewers the hardcore truth about this highly addictive substance which causes intense paranoia, psychosis and suicidal thoughts. A drug abuse expert who treats young people in the grips of bath salt addiction speaks bluntly about this methamphetamine-like drug. The gut-wrenching story of Jarrod Moody, a young man who took his own life after a binge on bath salts caused him to spiral out of control, makes a powerful case against experimenting with bath salts.
