What is SBIRT? – Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidenced based practice used to identify reduce and prevent risky substance use. The SBIRT model was incited by an Institute of Medicine recommendation that called for community based screening for health risk behaviors, including substance use.

Three Major Components: Screening- Assessment by healthcare professional for risky substance use behaviors using standardized tools. Screenings can occur in any healthcare setting. Brief Intervention- Engagement by a healthcare professional using an evidenced based algorithm with pa-tients to discuss risky substance use behaviors in a conversation, providing advice and feedback. Referral to Treatment- Referral by healthcare professional to indicated level of services in cooperation with the patient.
