SBIRT is a comprehensive, integrated public health approach to the delivery of prevention and early intervention for persons who may be at risk of a substance use disorder or who currently have one. It is comprised of screening - quickly assess current substance use; brief intervention - focus on increasing insight and awareness regarding substance use and motivation toward behavior change; and referral to treatment - provide those identified as needing more intensive treatment with access to care.
