Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)

A Resource Toolkit for Behavioral Health Providers to Begin the Conversation with Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers

The PFR/ATTC Network ALI Team project developed a comprehensive SBIRT toolkit specifically designed for Behavioral Health providers seeking to engage their local Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and/or Community Health Centers (CHCs) and initiativing a conversation on implementing SBIRT -- Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment.

SBIRT is a comprehensive, integrated, public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment services for persons with substance use disorders, as well as those who are at risk of developing these disorders. Primary care centers, hospital emergency rooms, trauma centers, and other community settings provide opportunities for early intervention with at-risk substance users before more severe consequences occur.

The ALI Team also provides several resources within the toolkit, including a pocketguide for Behavioral Healthcare providers.
