Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment

Pacific Southwest ATTC


Educational Event: Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment approaches are utilized in a variety of care settings. SBIRT has been shown to be effective in primary care settings, where it is incorporated into other routine medical assessments such as measuring blood pressure. It has been proven particularly effective in hospital emergency departments and trauma centers with individuals with alcohol-related injuries. 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. The training seeks to increase the number of primary care providers who can serve as champions to broaden the effective use and implementation of SBIRT in primary care settings throughout California.
