Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)

SBIRT is an evidence-based screening and intervention method aimed at the early detection of and early intervention with risky and harmful substance use.  SBIRT can be used in healthcare, behavioral healthcare, schools, and social service organizations as a routine, universal substance use screening for all clients and patients.  SBIRT identifies persons currently at risk for developing substance use disorders (SUD) before they become dependent or addicted.  SBIRT also identifies persons with existing SUDs and recommends techniques for intervening and connecting them to appropriate services.  SBIRT uses Motivational Interviewing (MI) to perform brief interventions with both adolescents and adults.

This presentation will introduce SBIRT and emphasize the view of SUDs as a public health problem.  It will show evidence of SBIRT’s effectiveness, and provide an overview of brief screening tools and interventions with clients in a range of settings.

David Wilkerson, LCSW, LISW-S is a Lecturer and Co-Investigator for Northern Kentucky University’s (NKU) Rural Communities Opioid Response Team.  He was previously the Principal Investigator NKU’s three-year federal SBIRT grant, which trained over 80 NKU students and nearly 400 community professionals to use brief screening and interventions.  He has over 30 years of experience as a behavioral health clinician, administrator, trainer, and educator.  His current research interests include evaluating and closing gaps in treatment and service delivery to persons with Opioid Use Disorder.  He also continues to work as an outpatient therapist, consultant, and clinical supervisor.
