Substance Use Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Learning Collaborative

CCSME & Maine Quality Counts

SBIRT is an evidence based set of clinical guidelines used for fast, routine screening of a population to determine risk levels for medically related drug and alcohol problems and co-morbidities. SBIRT also is a systematic approach to intervene with individual patients, assisting them to reduce their risk, or to effect referrals to specialty addiction treatment, as appropriate.
