For Members


Membership Requirements

All members of VASAM must be members in good standing of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.

VASAM membership categories correspond with ASAM member types:

  • Regular
  • Retired
  • Early Career Physician
  • Resident
  • Student

All members must adhere to the Principles of Medical Ethics of the American Society of Addiction Medicine. 

All Virginia members of ASAM are required to join VASAM, and all members of VASAM are required to join ASAM.  The intent of this requirement is a unified ASAM/VASAM membership.  Membership in the Virginia State Chapter of ASAM is not transferable to another State Chapter of ASAM.  However, membership in VASAM does not preclude simultaneous membership in any other State Chapter of ASAM.
