The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) is accepting nominations for clinical practice guideline topics from our members, stakeholders, and the general public.

ASAM clinical practice guidelines address prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions within the scope of addiction medicine and are targeted primarily towards clinicians and physicians. This submission form will prompt the nominator to provide information on the relevance of the proposed topic, availability of evidence to support guideline development, and the likelihood that the guideline will improve addiction treatment. Nominated topics will be reviewed on an annual basis by the Clinical Practice Guideline Methodology and Oversight Subcommittee (CPG-MOS) and the Quality Improvement Council (QIC).
