Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment
Welcome to the Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) course. This course provides you with the essential skills required to effectively identify, refer, and treat patients with substance use disorders and introduces a public health approach to substance use disorders. SBIRT is used to identify and deliver appropriate interventions for persons with existing substance use disorders and those at risk of developing a substance use disorder. This course also provides insights into addressing the stigma surrounding substance use, the screening process for high-risk behavior, delivery of brief interventions, and referral to treatment and includes an optional module that focuses on implementing SBIRT in a clinical care setting.
