Download Here A Cultural Adaptation of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) for Working with Hispanic and Latinx Communities Culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies are the means to ensure respectful and responsive services that enhance effective outcomes for racial, ethnic, and other underserved communities in behavioral health care. As such, being culturally informed when conducting evidence-based (EB) practices such as Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) can help Hispanic and Latinx clients reduce their substance use. SBIRT is an evidence-based practice that helps practitioners identify and intervene with people whose pattern of substance use puts them at risk for or are experiencing substance-related health and other psychosocial problems. The question is: How do we facilitate SBIRT without compromising the fidelity of the model while practicing culturally responsive care? This two-session webinar series reviews the current landscape of substance use and the benefits of culturally adapted evidence-based interventions that align with culturally and appropriate services standards, (CLAS). Further, the content informs on how a culturally informed framework can help meet the needs and enhance quality care among Hispanic communities at risk.

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
