SBIRT is changing: Connect with us to learn more!

SBIRT continues to evolve.  Since researchers began to study its effectiveness in 1993, we have learned a great deal about workflow, financing, screening tools, and the range of behavioral health issues it can address.  The environment is also changing— the Affordable Care Act’s effort to reduce our country’s steep healthcare costs and its emphasis on prevention and wellness are creating a fertile environment for SBIRT practices to grow.

ATTC Network Spotlight

In October 2012, SAMHSA created four new National Focus Area ATTCs. These National Focus Area Centers will work with Regional Centers to serve as subject matter experts, provide information on the latest research-based best practices, and coordinate efforts on four topics of national focus. Learn more by visiting each of these new Centers online.
