ASAM stopped certification when ABAM was created about 9 years ago and began certification. Now that ABPM will be the new certifier, there will be no new ABAM certifications either.

How do you become ASAM certified as opposed to ABAM certified ?

medic2109, I don't know the answer to your question, but I just wanted to tell you that I am in the same boat as you. The ASAM really screwed Osteopathic Physicians by ostracizing us from the ranks of addiction treatment physicians! I have already lost a job promotion because I can't get certified!

It took about 2 weeks for them to approve me. I am ASAM certified

The application must be accepted or denied within 45 days.

My application was accepted within 25 days as confirmed by a phone call, but nothing in writing until new DEA cards arrived.
