HHSC encourages all providers to complete: Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)
SBIRT is an approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment to people with substance use disorders and those at risk of developing these disorders.
The core components of SBIRT include:
• Screening quickly to assess severity of substance use and identify the appropriate level of treatment;
• Conducting a brief intervention that focuses on increasing insight and awareness regarding substance use and motivation towards behavioral change; and
• Providing treatment referrals to individuals identified as needing, more extensive treatment with access to specialty care
Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) free online SBIRT course through Medscape addresses the basic principles of SBIRT.
** A free membership to Medscape is required to view the training.
