Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral and Treatment (SBIRT)


Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based approach for identifying and responding to persons at risk for alcohol, tobacco and other substance use disorders. The SBIRT method identifies at risk individuals, provides a brief intervention and referral for specialty care when indicated. SBIRT is an effective way to integrate behavioral health into primary care. Primary care clinics, emergency departments, mental health, corrections and college health programs are utilizing SBIRT to begin addressing the significant human, healthcare, and safety-related costs associated with the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. .

Clinics and behavioral health specialists throughout the Pacific Northwest select NWATTC because we provide unique SBIRT trainings tailored to each individual’s role in the implementation of SBIRT. Our trainers have extensive experience with both SBIRT and Motivational Interviewing.
