Join us for the Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for Youth Learning Community



The goals of the learning community are to

  • Examine the application of SBIRT in various youth settings
  • Create a community of providers, administrators and researchers who share a passion for reducing and/or eliminating substance use in youth populations
  • Share experiences with implementing SBIRT in youth settings


These sessions will be on the last Tuesday of every other month, and are open to the public




Substance use by adolescents is a significant public health problem and is associated with both acute and long term health problems. The American Academy of Pediatrics and other organizations recommend routine screening and brief intervention to prevent or reduce substance use as part of routine care for adolescents. This learning community will focus on the process of SBIRT (Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment) as is being implemented in youth audiences.
