Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based treatment used to treat and prevent the use of alcohol and substances. The goal of SBIRT is to target those with nondependent substance use and treat them before they become depend. In this two part lunch and learn webinar, Pam Pietruszweski, MA of the National Council for Behavioral Health will give a brief overview of SBIRT concepts and how to apply it in practice.
