What is SBIRT?

SBIRT stands for Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment. SBIRT is a universal public health approach to integrate behavioral and primary health care. It is a way to increase awareness that substance abuse is preventable and that treatment works.  SBIRT can be provided in a wide variety of medical and community healthcare settings.
