If You Don't Ask, You Won't Know
We at SBIRT in Colorado are using evaluation, experience and lessons learned to establish screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment for substance use, often referred to as SBIRT, as a standard of care in healthcare settings.
When providers explain to patients how substance use effects health, change happens. This is an important conversation showing your commitment to care and supporting your patients’ wellness. It’s been proven that you can motivate individuals to change. Routine screening is a quick, easy way to identify and intervene with patients whose use puts them at risk for health issues.
Validated Screening Tools
