Training Summary:

Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) are effective in a variety of settings. SBIRT’s effectiveness has been proven particularly effective in hospital emergency departments and trauma centers with individuals with alcohol-related injuries. SBIRT has also been shown to be effective in primary care settings, where it is incorporated into other routine medical assessments such as measuring blood pressure. This training focuses on screening procedures to identify risk; key motivational interviewing concepts and principles that are tied to effective use of the FLO (Feedback; Listen and Understand; Options Explored) brief intervention; and referral to treatment for patients with more serious substance use-related problems.
