The utilization of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) approach, developed by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), has been effective in the delivery of early intervention and treatment to people who existing –or at risk for– substance use challenges and disorders. SBIRT, a comprehensive integrated public health model, routinely screens for potential medical problems, provides preventative services prior to the onset of acute symptoms, and delays or precludes the development of chronic conditions. To address the worsening substance use and overdose crisis in the United States, SBIRT can be used a paradigm shift in early intervention and treatment for substance use among adults. This webinar will explore the components of SBIRT, application of SBIRT for adults, considerations for integration, and building sustainability.
Join us for our webinar, Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) with Adults, on Tuesday, September 28, from 3:00-4:00pm ET to hear from integrated care experts who will explore SBIRT components, trends in substance use challenges among adults, and identify considerations for integration within the clinical workflow.

The on-going COVID-19 pandemic has taken an immense toll on entire school communities including School-Based Health Centers, mental health and substance use providers, educators, staff, students, and families. In collaboration with the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, the Weitzman Institute will kick off a Childhood Trauma ECHO series with a webinar. This webinar will acknowledge updates from the integrated care field and explore trauma and its impact on youth, families, schools, and providers to assist participants with putting plans into motion to leverage today’s resources. During this session, we will launch an opportunity to participate in the Weitzman ECHO Childhood Trauma series, aimed at peer-to-peer learning to enhance the understanding of childhood trauma among integrated care providers.
