Course Description: SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) is an evidence-based practice that uses a preventive public health approach to identify and intervene with persons whose pattern of use puts them at risk for, or are experiencing substance-related health problems, and/or deliver referrals to treatment for persons with a high potential for substance use disorders.
With current data reporting 66.6 million people in the US as binge drinkers, and over 30 million more having used illicit drugs in the past month, many of whom will not meet the criteria of alcohol or substance use disorders, SBIRT is an essential intervention to integrate in behavioral health settings. This interactive two-part training will discuss validated evidence-based tools used in SBIRT, how to provide a brief intervention and skills practice, and essential components of successful facilitation of referrals to treatment.
