Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Train the Trainer (TTT) - REGISTRATION IS CLOSED - TRAINING IS FULL

Description: SBIRT is an evidence-based practice that uses a preventive public health approach to identify and intervene with persons whose patterns of use put them at risk for, or are experiencing substance-related health and psychosocial problems. SBIRT can also help identify persons with a potential for a substance use disorder. The content will review evidence-based substance use screening tools, skills practice with brief intervention, and essential components of successful facilitation of referrals to substance use disorder treatment services.

This interactive Train the Trainer (TTT) event will be facilitated in FIVE virtual sessions over two weeks.
