A SIMPLE PROCESS WITH BIG RESULTS: WITH ALCOHOL SCREENING AND BRIEF INTERVENTION, EVERYONE IS ASKED ABOUT SUBSTANCE USE

As a routine healthcare screening, SBIRT can be administered by any member of the healthcare team. When risky drinkers are identified, they receive a brief intervention —a conversation designed to move an individual to change and reduce substance use.

THE SBI PROCESS
-Screen everyone each year
-Those individuals who screen positive receive a brief intervention
-Individuals who screen at high risk are referred for specialty services
