What is Screening?

A Screening is a short questionnaire to confidentially look at your risk of current or future problems related to substance use, depression or trauma. This includes information about severity of alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription drug use and abuse.

What is Brief Intervention?

A Brief Intervention is used to increase the awareness of your substance use. If there is a concern, the Behavioral Health Consultant encourages change in behavior and motivates you and your family to seek treatment.

If screening scores are low to moderate, the Behavior Health Consultant can continue treatment for up to 12 free sessions.

SBIRT is Recommended

The National Commission on Prevention Priorities ranked the top 25 preventive services recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) on preventable burden (PB) and return on investment (ROI). On this list, alcohol screening and intervention ranked #4, just lower than childhood immunizations and smoking cessation. 

The World Health Organization, USPSTF and the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons have endorsed routine SBIRT in primary care and Level 1 Trauma Centers.

What is Referral to Treatment?

Referral to Treatment is for those who continue to show significant symptoms and do not respond to the Brief Intervention. Referral to Treatment can be an internal referral for further services or an external recommendation for community-based mental health or substance abuse assessment. 

Referral to treatment is necessary if screening scores are moderate or high. 

SBIRT uses yearly screenings to promote early intervention and treatment for substance use and depression.  Up to 12 free Behavioral Health Consultations are provided to assist in the treatment of identified issues. The patient may be referred to treatment if they need a higher level of care.
