Module Description: This online module describes screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) for the full spectrum of substance use.  SBIRT is an evidence-based system initially designed for primary care providers that uses brief, validated screeners and motivational interviewing-inspired brief interventions to reduce use, reduce harm, and/or prepare a patient with a substance use disorder to receive an appropriate treatment referral.  SBIRT has been adapted for use in a number of medical settings beyond primary care and has included providers from a wide range of health disciplines.
