Using Cultural Elements and Brief Interventions to Reduce Substance Use in Latinx Communities

SBIRT, (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment), is an evidence-based practice that uses a preventive approach to identify and intervene with persons whose patterns of use put them at risk for, or are experiencing substance-related health and other psychosocial problems such as HIV and HCV. The SBIRT practice also identifies persons who may benefit from a referral to treatment.

It’s critical that providers working with the Latinx communities develop an atmosphere that is culturally appropriate, trauma informed, and affirming. This interactive presentation will review the integration of trauma sensitive cultural elements, and inclusivity as essential and conducive to engagement for facilitating a substance use screen. The content will further inform on how taking a few minutes to conduct a person centered brief intervention can help motivate reduction of substance use.
