SBIRT Training

Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based practice used to identify, reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs. The goals of the training are to:

  • Help professionals understand the importance of screening young people for harmful and hazardous substance use so that they can intervene before a substance use disorder develops.
  • Provide professionals with effective tools to identify harmful and hazardous substance use patterns.
  • Assist professionals in having sensitive conversations with youth about their harmful and hazardous substance use patterns by discussing effective motivational enhancement techniques.
  • Equip youth-serving professionals with information about school and community resources that are available if a student is in need of further assessment or referral to treatment.

To learn how to bring SBIRT Training to your school, organization, or program, contact Caron's Education Alliance at 800-678-2332 ext. 6117.
