What is SBIRT?
• SBIRT is a comprehensive, integrated, health approach to
the delivery of early intervention and treatment services
for:
– Persons with substance use disorders
– Those who are at risk of developing these disorders
• Primary care, mental health, ER and other community
settings provide opportunities for intervention with at-risk
substance users
Before more severe consequences occur and while it is easier
and less time consuming to intervene

substance use disorders
• Implement these interventions with minimal
interference with routine office procedures
SBIRT:
Core Clinical Components

substance related problems
• Brief Intervention: Raises awareness of risks and
motivates patients to acknowledge & address
problem: 1- 2 sessions of 5-8 minutes each
• Referral to Treatment: Referral of those with
more serious addictions to specialized treatment
services.
