Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT): A Public Health Model to Address Substance Use

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 

Register

Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is a comprehensive public health approach for delivering prevention, early intervention, and referral to treatment services to people using substances in a harmful or risky way. Although as effective and cost-effective as other preventative services, such as giving flu shots, screening for risky alcohol use is not nearly as common. This webinar provides the opportunity to learn about the SBIRT model and its component parts to reduce the progression of substance use in individuals.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe SBIRT as a public health model
  • Apply SBIRT to multiple health and behavioral settings
  • Review screening and brief intervention techniques
