ASAM calls on all physicians to take the upcoming Addiction Medicine board exam

Addiction Medicine is concerned with the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of persons with the disease of addiction, of those with substance-related health conditions, and of people who show unhealthy use of substances including nicotine, alcohol, prescription medications and other licit and illicit drugs.

Physicians in this subspecialty also help family members whose health and functioning are affected by a loved one’s substance use or addiction.

For more information on the qualifications and requirements to become board certified in addiction medicine visit the American Board of Preventive Medicine or https://www.theabpm.org/become-certified/subspecialties/addiction-medicine/
