Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is a comprehensive, integrated, public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment services. The primary goal of the SBIRT model is to identify clients who use alcohol and other drugs at risky levels, with the goal of reducing and preventing related health consequences, disease, accidents and injuries. SBIRT places risky substance use where it belongs—in the realm of healthcare.

Join us to learn how SBIRT can make a difference in your agency and our community.
