Join us for our webinar, Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) with Youth, on Tuesday, September 21, from 2:00-3:00pm ET to hear from integrated care experts who will explore YSBIRT components, benefits of using this approach for youth, and social and cultural considerations.
The utilization of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) approach, developed by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), has been effective in the delivery of early intervention and treatment to people who existing –or at risk for– substance use challenges and disorders. Youth SBIRT (YSBIRT), is an evidence-based practice for prevention and mitigation of risky substance use among adolescents ages 12 to 18 years. By using YSBIRT primary care organizations can reduce adolescent substance use by educating youth and their caregivers as well as identify risky behaviors and providing interventions early. This webinar will explore the components of YSBIRT, application in assessing risk for substance use challenges and considerations for integration and building sustainability using this model.
