The National SBIRT ATTC is funded to advance SBIRT as a timely public health model worthy and in need of advancement to reach its full potential impact on the health of Americans. With our partner (NORC), we hope to help healthcare providers utilize the public health model of screening for substance use and providing advice or counseling to their patients who use alcohol or other drugs in risky or harmful ways.


The National SBIRT ATTC is housed at the Institute for Research, Eduction,and Training in Addictions (IRETA) in Pittsburgh, PA.

To further expand our capacity and deepen our expertise, the National SBIRT ATTC is partnering with the University of Chicago’s National Opinion Research Center (NORC) to help healthcare and EAP providers utilize the SBIRT model.
