Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)
SBIRT is an evidence-based, integrated, public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment services for persons with
substance use disorder, as well as those who are at risk of developing substance use disorder. SBIRT requires screening of every patient for
potential alcohol or other drug problems and a response which reinforces non-harmful use, educates about the impact of substance misuse
on overall health and safety, and supports patients with problematic use in accessing further assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. New
Hampshire has several initiatives in place to expand SBIRT in Primary Care settings and Community Health Centers.
