Event-specific Details

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. SBIRT, a comprehensive integrated public health model, routinely screens for potential medical problems, provides preventative services prior to the onset of acute symptoms, and delays or precludes the development of chronic conditions. To address the worsening substance use and overdose crisis in the United States, SBIRT can be used a paradigm shift in early intervention and treatment for substance use among adults. This webinar will explore the components of SBIRT, application of SBIRT for adults, considerations for integration, and building sustainability.
