What if health care providers could deliver an effective intervention to reduce alcohol and illicit drug use and save both lives and money? Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based, public health approach to reducing harmful alcohol and illicit drug use. SBIRT involves giving patients feedback about their use, delivering brief motivational interviews, and referring patient to specialty treatment when necessary. SBIRT is quickly becoming a recommended "best practice" in a variety of healthcare settings. Timing is right for learning these skills as billing for these services is becoming easier with more states activating billing codes that allow for Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurers to pay for SBIRT services. This one-day workshop provide in-depth exposure to specific SBIRT procedures and counseling skills and is designed for a variety of health professionals, including marriage and family therapists; licensed clinical social workers; addiction counselors; and nurses who work in primary care, mental health, student counseling, and substance abuse treatment centers.
