Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is the future of health care.

Screening and brief intervention provides an innovative and interactive strategy to identify people who use alcohol or other drugs that place them at risk and motivate them to change their behavior. These proven methods are being expanded to address the needs of individuals who identify having additional concerns, such as tobacco use and mental health issues.

Services are designed to intervene and to reduce future health, social and economic costs.

The role of SBIRT is unlimited and is highly transferable to various settings.
Learn about California SBIRT projects funded through Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), outcomes, best practices and lessons learned. Also learn about SBIRT's role in health care reform.

By attending, you will have the opportunity to participate in a collaborative process with subject matter experts to learn and develop strategies that can be applied to and implemented in your own communities.

Resources and posters will be on exhibit for your enjoyment and information.
An optional donation, in lieu of conference fees, will be available to benefit children in San Diego County's Foster Care system.

Join us as we discuss what we've learned from SBIRT and where it will lead us in the future.
