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.
This interactive training will discuss validated evidence-based tools used in SBIRT, and how to provide a brief intervention that addresses risky substance use consumption. Essential components for facilitating successful referrals to treatment services will also be discussed.
